2. “The Titans Will Take Time to Gel”
The biggest competition Indianapolis has as they look to take home the title is Nashville, considering that Julio Jones was just added to a high-octane Tennesse Titans offense that already had the efficient Ryan Tannehill at quarterback, 2,000-yard workhorse Derrick Henry in the backfield, and AJ Brown at wide receiver.
Still, the Titans did lose some big names in the offseason. While Jones and Josh Reynolds did arrive, Corey Davis is now with the Jets, tight end Jonnu Smith joined the Patriots, and brilliant offensive coordinator Arthur Smith skipped town in order to become the head coach of Jones’ old team in the Falcons.
Will the Titans need time to work things out? The Colts better hope so.
With so many new faces in town, it could take some time before everyone gets on the same page, especially considering everyone on offense is switching from Smith to new OC Todd Downing. Just imagine, however, what would happen if they all click instantly. Here’s a hint: it won’t be good for the Colts.
The Jaguars are still a few years away from giving Trevor Lawrence the proper support needed to win, while the Texans are…the Texans. These two are really the only teams with a chance at winning the division, and all of those moving parts on offense gelling instantly would be horrendous for Indianapolis.
