The Dallas Cowboys will have the spotlight for Thursday Night Football this week as they travel to Nashville to take on the Tennessee Titans. After coming off of a massive win against their rivals, the boys are ready to take on anyone right now with the confidence they have. However, the Titans have a problem that may affect them heavily this Thursday.
The Titans have been a decent powerhouse team in the NFL for the past couple of seasons. After beating the New England Patriots in the 2019 Wild Card game, their franchise and crew have really proved to be a top contender. While this year started to look promising again, they have suffered some issues throughout the last few games.
One of those is injuries. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill will be absent due to an ankle injury. Losing a player like this brings the whole team down and is never good. The Titans will be without their star QB and instead will have backup Quarterback Malik Willis, a fresh player out of Liberty College.
If losing Ryan wasn't bad enough, the man who is the reason for the Titans' success is also injured, Runningback Derrick Henry. Without Henry, the Titans have proved to be nothing much of a poor football team. I say this because last week they suffered a loss to the Houston Texans, the last-place team in the NFL.
So, let's answer this question. Do the Tennesee Titans stand a chance at defeating the Dallas Cowboys? Well, any team could beat anyone on any given day, however, I think the chances of them pulling out a win is very low at the moment. The Cowboys have one mission on their mind right now, keep winning.
The Titans in a way seem to be giving up. With the playoffs approaching and the Jacksonville Jaguars taking the lead in their division, the Titans are starting to feel hopeless. All of the hype has shifted over to the Jagurs for this season and I don't think anyone can stop them from winning the AFC South.
While I feel like the Titans are still a good football team, I think their season is over and there's nothing more they can do. Hosting a fearless Cowboy team hungry for another win is something that not many teams can beat.
Now one thing that may be an issue for the Cowboys is that Runningback Tony Pollard may not be playing. After not practicing the other day, people are assuming that Tony won't participate in Thursday's game. This is also the same for Derrick Henry, while none of these are set in stone, it is likely that Henry and Pollard will sit out for each of their team.
I have the Cowboys winning this game by a bit, while I think the Titans' defense could maybe give us a run for our money, it's gonna be tough for their offense to move the ball whatsoever. Hoping for a fun and exciting game as we approach the end of the year.
