Baltimore Ravens @ Tennessee Titans

1:00 pm EST, CBS

 

Preview:

The Titans enter this game in position to possibly capture the AFC South, which is no surprise considering that they’ve been accumulating and using high draft picks for a number of years, including at quarterback, although third-year QB Marcus Mariota has struggled of late and has been limited by a faulty hamstring.  The Ravens will presumably welcome back QB Joe Flacco, whose resounding concussion made headlines by the sheer violence of it.  Look for the Ravens to lean heavily on upstart running back Alex Collins to ease the burden on Flacco and soften up a good Titans defense.

 

Key players:

Ravens – Flacco, Collins, LB C.J. Mosley

Titans – Mariota, RB Derrick Henry, LB Wesley Woodyard

 

 

Cincinnati Bengals  @ Jacksonville jaguars

1:00 pm EST, CBS

 

Preview:

The Jaguars, like the Titans, enter as contenders for the AFC South, which, like the Titans, isn’t so surprising considering the wealth of high draft picks on the roster – eventually, talent wins out, and ultra-talented rookie running back Leonard Fournette has been a huge addition.  The Bengals will counter with their own stable of running backs while hoping to finally hit on the right combination of players for sustained success – needless to say, consistency remains an issue for the puzzling Bengals.

 

Key Players:

Bengals – WR Brandon LaFell, RB Giovani Bernard, RB Jeremy Hill

Jaguars – Fournette, QB Blake Bortles, CB A.J. Bouye

 

 

Pittsburgh Steelers – Bye

Cleveland Browns – Bye
