Scout's take: Titans' physical receivers a key against Bears

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- This week the Titans need to steal the Bengals’ offensive game plan and focus on getting the ball out of Ryan Tannehill’s hands quickly and into the hands of A.J. Brown, Jonnu Smith and Corey Davis.

Without Adam Humphries (concussion) the more physical Titan receivers will be a good matchup against the smaller and less physical Kyle Fuller, Buster Skrine and rookie Jaylen Johnson.DavisBrown

Skrine, the Bears’ nickel, is a smaller and quicker but would struggle to match versus receivers with size.

Last week versus New Orleans, Skrine played very soft coverage and gave a big cushion when the Saints used tight end Jared Cook in his zone. He showed a lack of awareness of downs and distances against the Saints giving up big first downs with passes thrown in front of him with plenty of room for the receiver to run the extra distance for a first down.
