Every stat for Tenn on defense has them as average or slightly below average except for them being 12th in the league vs the run.
They weren’t great against the run last night but NE also didn’t run it enough, so they were held under 100 yards.
If they play defense next week like that against the Ravens, the Ravens will get their 200ish yards.
The big matchup is the Tenn Oline vs our Dline. The Ravens can’t get dominated up front and allow Henry to have a big game.
That being said, Henry had a monster game last night and they basically only won by 1 and the offense only put up 14 points.
The other side to that is that even with a great secondary, I don’t except to see Tannehill with just 15 passes and 72 yards.
Another thing to keep an eye on is Humphrey. He was called for 11 penalties this year, which was almost triple the next guy in the secondary for the Ravens. He plays physical and that lends to these penalties. However, they usually allow you to get away with more physical play in the playoffs, so that could be a huge advantage for him.
Of course, it could also completely take M Brown out of the game.
