@ Tennessee Titans

Up next will be the Tennessee Titans. Do not let the 2019 record fool you. The team only won one more game than the Chicago Bears, but after Ryan Tannehill took over, the Titans went 7-3 on the season and made the playoffs. The team went on to shock the Patriots and then the Ravens, but fell short against the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game. That is right, the Titans were one game away from the Super Bowl.

Honestly, I am not confident the team repeats the same success in 2019, but that does not mean the Titans will not be good. The team is likely to push for a playoff spot once again. The biggest addition (at least by name) that the Titans brought in through free agency is Vic Beasley. Beasley has been somewhat of a disappointment, but he was a guy I wanted for cheap in free agency for the Bears before they spent big on Robert Quinn. Quinn was a better move. Bravo Ryan Pace.

Tannehill had a career year in many ways last season. He had his highest season quarterback rating of 117.5. It was the first time he finished a season with over a 100 quarterback rating in his career. He also had a career year in yards per attempt, air yards per attempt, yards gained per completion and completion percentage.

The difference in these were actually quite significant. Does Tannehill fit the Titans offensive system better than he did in Miami or was it a one year fluke? If Tannehill found his groove with this offense, expect good things from the Titans once again in 2020.

Prediction: Bears lose 20-19
