WEEK 9 MNF: TENNESSEE TITANS vs DALLAS COWBOYS

A couple of those Sunday games did not go as I expected. Just a couple though. LOL! Now, it is Monday night and, just like Thursday night, the two teams playing will not excite you. But, hey, stranger things have happened. I think it is more difficult to pick between two “not so great” teams than it is for any other match ups. The game still needs to be played. I will watch because it is football and it is on. Here is my take…

TENNESSEE TITANS vs DALLAS COWBOYS:

Neither of these teams has quite the promise they once had at the beginning of the season. Starting the second half of the season, they do not look any more promising. The Titans are struggling on both sides of the ball. RB Derrick Henry has been on the trading block in favor of Dion Lewis. The Titan defense is nothing to speak of outside safeties Logan Ryan and Adoree Jackson. What do the Cowboys have to counter that? Dallas acquired WR Amari Cooper from the Oakland Raiders. He does not allow the offense to spread out, which will be a problem in press coverage. There is no clear way to use their new “weapon” in the offense scheme of things. Cole Beasley will still be their best option. What Dallas does have going for them is defense. If the offense can contain the mediocre play of the Titans offense, this will allow for Dak Prescott to make things happen on offense. With this edge, the home team should be able to take this one.
