Scout's take: Giants a perfect team for Titans to attack deep

By BLAKE BEDDINGFIELD, special contributor

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Giants are no longer an Eli Manning-run team. This offense, and ultimately the team, will have success if the rookie running back, Saquon Barkley, is going well.

Barkley can run in between the tackles, and outside the perimeter of the defense, but he is also extremely dangerous as a receiver.MariotaLogoJets

The type of production Barkley is having rivals Marshall Faulk and Le’Veon Bell. The Titans will need to limit his touches as a receiver and gang tackle and be physical when he is a runner.

Odell Beckham Jr, is out, which means the Titans will be able to focus their attention on Barkley.

Beckham and Barkley are a tough duo and when they both play, the combination opens up both the screen game to Barkley and the vertical game to Beckham.

Derrick Henry has followed-up previous 100-yard games with-1.8 yards per carry

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – For Derrick Henry, domination has been followed by disaster.

Before his 238-yard outburst against Jacksonville last week, Henry had three 100-yard NFL games on his resume.


He's going to get an opportunity to pick up where he left off against the Jaguars Dec. 6 against the Giants at MetLife Stadium Sunday. But the Titans are going to need him to break the trend of follow-ups to his big games so far.

Corey Davis needs 78.3 yards a game to get to 1,000, and he wants it

"That’s one of my goals, it would mean everything to me,” Davis said. "It would mean a lot.""

Malcolm Butler on his season: 'It’s all a big seesaw'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Some could argue – as I did – that paying big money for a guy whose primary quality is competitiveness might not be wise.

But after Malcolm Butler’s miserable start to the season, he’s settled down quite a bit and that competitiveness didn’t allow for him to give up, or to hide.ButlerJaguars

To Butler’s credit, as we discussed on Monday’s Midday 180, he’s never made an excuse or tried to hide during a disappointing 2018. And now he’s found some better footing.

Derrick Henry on record-238-yard night: 'There were runs I could have read better'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nobody’s ever played a perfect game, football coaches and players say over and over.

So even after Derrick Henry’s 17-carry, 238 rushing performance Thursday against the Jaguars, the Titans had to at least try to find some minor issues.HenryJaguars2

As he reviewed it Monday, Henry said he did look at one particular play he’s pretty sure he could have done better with.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Welcome to Week 14 Sunday, with  Titans' win in the bank and a full slate of games ahead. During and between them I invite you to catch up on al lthe best questions you've tossed my direction.

HenryAnthemJagsPK: It’s hard to know. It was an all-time game. It does a lot for Derrick Henry's cause. But I don’t think a guy who a coaching staff seemed out on for a good part of the season solidifies his future with one game. He had been trending up. To me, this will be a big test for Mike Vrabel and his staff. Can they make the most of what they’ve got as opposed to finding exactly what they feel they need? If Henry finishes strong, does their thinking evolve?
