No Henry No Issues: Tennessee Titans 28-16 Los Angeles Rams

After superstar running back Derrick Henry went down with a severe foot injury, a huge cloud of uncertainty clouded Tennessee’s season. The Titans ran their offense through and around King Henry and their passing game was in question.

The defense saw this and retaliated in response.

Within 26 game seconds, the Titans got two interceptions–one being a pick six.  Jeffery Simmons wrapped up Stafford forcing him to throw a bad interception to David Long.

Two plays later, Stafford dropped back and threw an out route that was hijacked by Kevin Byard. Byard ran back the ball for a pick six the first of his career.

Mike Vrabel continues this mentality after the game. Emphasizing what the team needs to do after the loss of Henry.

Beckham out Order Restored: Cleveland Browns 41-16 Cincinnati Bengals

Odell Beckham Jr. headlined the Browns’ week. Beckham, a three-time pro bowler, was recently waived by the Browns because he was too much of a distraction for their Quarterback Baker Mayfield. The Browns again were under turmoil for this decision, with this in mind expectations were low going into Sunday’s game.

The Browns’ offense exploded.

Nick Chubb had himself a day against the Bengals’ defense. Chubb had 14 carries for 137 yards and two touchdowns. He capped off his offensive explosion with a 70-yard touchdown run to extend the Browns lead to 18 in the third quarter.

The Browns and Bengals now sit at the bottom of the AFC North waiting for the Steelers to play on Monday Night Football. Both Being 5-4
