The Tennessee Titans (0-1) could be in for a rough 2023 NFL Season. There is not a lot of confidence in the leadership and passing abilities of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He had three interceptions and no touchdowns in the Titans' 16-15 road loss to the New Orleans Saints last week.
The Titans are looking to rebound this week when they host a more determined Los Angeles Chargers (0-1). The Chargers' defense is looking to rebound after allowing 466 yards and three touchdowns from Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Tennessee had the third-worst passing offense last season as they averaged 171.4 passing yards per game. While the Titans didn't have a definitive #1 receiver, the subpar play of Tannehill didn't help. That looks to be the case this season as well.
Before week one, the last time wide receiver Calvin Ridley played in a regular season game was in the 2021 NFL Season with the Atlanta Falcons. During his yearlong suspension for betting on NFL games, he was traded for a small package to the Jacksonville Jaguars in hopes of a great #1 receiver.
Last week at the Indianapolis Colts, Ridley was back in action as he caught eight receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown. Ridley didn't lose a step as the team's top wideout.
This Sunday, the Jaguars host the Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) in a huge AFC matchup. This game could be a potential AFC Conference Championship preview. Kansas City had the 19th-ranked pass defense last season by allowing 220.9 passing yards allowed per game. This game can serve as another statement for Ridley as he is back in action in his prime age.
Two days before the San Francisco 49ers took on the Pittsburgh Steelers, the 49ers made star defensive end Nick Bosa the highest-paid defensive player in the league. He is now averaging $34 million per year, nearly $3 million more than Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald.
The 2022 NFL sack leader in Bosa looks to get his first sack of the season. He will try again on Sunday as the 49ers (1-0) go on the road to take on the Los Angeles Rams (1-0).
Bosa accounted for 18 sacks last season. There will not be many games where he not be left without a sack. In 51 games since coming into the league in 2019, Bosa has accounted for 43 total sacks.
The offensive line of the Rams gave up 59 sacks last season, which was the third-most on the team.
The New York Giants' 40-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football left a horrible taste in the mouths of the NFL fans, NFL media and Giants fans altogether. It looks like the Giants could take a serious regression this season.
They do, however, have a chance to rebound on Sunday afternoon as the Giants (0-1) go on the road to take on the Arizona Cardinals (0-1). The Cardinals were tied for second in the league in passing touchdowns allowed (29). Arizona barely made an effort to fix their team as they look to tank this season. They let star cornerback Byron Murphy walk to another team.
This will be a perfect time for quarterback Daniel Jones to get the offense going and start establishing a rhythm. The Giants were the only team in week one that didn’t find a way to score. Jones was just given an expensive contract extension over the offseason rather than pay running back Saquon Barkley more money, this can’t happen under Jones.
