New Youth Authentic NFL Tennessee Titans Jerseys Cheap

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — After experiencing health issues in 2018, Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Dean Pees is returning for his 16th year as an NFL coach. Once he received a clean bill of health, coming back was an easy decision.

“I feel great,” Pees said. “I got a couple of things cleaned up, and I am feeling as good as I’ve felt in a long time.”

His return is significant for a unit that is looking to ascend to a championship level. The Titans allowed a season-high 38 points against the Colts in Week 11 when Pees was taken to the hospital with an unknown medical condition during the first quarter at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis.

Pees believes his group has the potential to be a championship defense.

“We are very close,” Pees said. “I don’t know where we finished this year, but I know we were in the top 10 in most of the categories and we felt good about that. I had a lot of players come in at the end of the season and talk to me and really felt good about everything, and that is the key thing.”

Under Pees, the Titans finished third in the NFL in scoring defense, allowing 18.6 points per game. And opposing teams scored a touchdown on 44.6 percent of their red zone trips against Tennessee, the league’s second-best mark, trailing only the Eagles (44.3 percent).

The players say they are prepared thanks to the tip sheets Pees provides. For example, safety Kevin Byard’s red zone interception against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9 happened because of a tip from Pees. Byard said Pees alerted the defense to a specific part of Cowboys right tackle La’el Collins’ stance that indicated he was going to pass block. Dallas called a play-action pass, but Byard never bit on the run fake thanks to the tip from Pees, which allowed him to pick up the wide receiver running a crossing route and intercept the pass.

Pees dialed up timely blitzes that resulted in sacks by sending Byard or cornerback Logan Ryan after the quarterback. Safety Kenny Vaccaro said Pees’ playcalling is like, “Jordan in the fourth quarter.” But the scheme will only get the Titans so far.

The defense has holes to address, such as finding an impact pass-rusher. Outside linebacker Harold Landry, a second-round pick in 2018, is the Titans’ best option, but fourth-year linebacker Kamalei Correa is their veteran edge rusher. The Titans should add a veteran free agent such as Za’Darius Smith, who posted 8.5 sacks for the Ravens last season — including three against the Titans.

Pees had an integral role in the Ravens selecting Smith in the fourth round of the 2015 draft. He was at Smith’s pro day in Kentucky and told him he’d be a Raven. And having Pees in place lessens the risk of the scheme not matching the player, because Smith has already excelled in the same system. Smith would give the Titans a player who can line up at outside linebacker in base defense and as a four or five technique in nickel packages. Defensive tackle Jurrell Casey draws a lot of attention from opposing offenses and needs a running mate who can take advantage of one-on-one matchups.

Adding a pure outside linebacker in the draft — such as Florida’s Jachai Polite, Mississippi State’s Montez Sweat or Florida State’s Brian Burns — would be the finishing piece for the Titans’ defense. A rookie could provide pressure off the edge, giving quarterbacks less time to wait for the wide receivers to run their routes, thus helping the secondary.

Re-signing Vaccaro is a necessity as well. He quickly became a player who set the tone for the defense last season. Former Titans safety Michael Griffin pointed out that Vaccaro and Byard gave Pees a group similar to the Super Bowl XLVII-winning secondary that featured Ed Reed (ballhawk) and Bernard Pollard (thumper).

Tightening things up on the back end is crucial for the Titans’ defense to take the next step. The secondary struggled early in the season, giving up big plays such as Eagles wideout Jordan Matthews’ 51-yard touchdown reception and a 75-yard score by Chargers receiver Tyrell Williams, but they rebounded and finished with seven plays of 40 yards or more allowed.

“Whenever you have a secondary that doesn’t give up big plays, you are going to have a heckuva defense,” Pees said.

The continued development of linebackers Jayon Brown and Rashaan Evans will help as well, but it all starts with Pees.

Wholesale Football Green Bay Packers Womens Authentic Jerseys Nike

FRISCO, Texas — Last January, the Dallas Cowboys walked out of AT&T Stadium cursing Aaron Rodgers and his incredible third-down throw that set up the Green Bay Packers’ winning field goal in the final seconds.

In January 2015, the Cowboys walked out of Lambeau Field cursing former NFL director of officiating Dean Blandino for overturning a fourth-down Dez Bryant catch late in the fourth quarter that led to their loss to the Packers in the divisional round.

For a number of Cowboys, those two playoff losses were crushing. Both times they felt they had a team worthy of getting to a Super Bowl and both times they left with disheartening defeats.

Ten months after the Packers beat the Cowboys in the playoffs, they will return to AT&T Stadium.

Coming off a loss last week to the Los Angeles Rams, the Cowboys might need a win a little bit more than the 3-1 Packers. They might need it more to jump-start a season that has seen them follow a win one, lose one pattern through four games.

They might need it more to forget what happened the past two times these teams met in the playoffs.

“There’s motivating factors for everybody and definitely for me just because that was the second time I’ve lost to Green Bay and knocked us out of the playoffs,” said Tyrone Crawford, who is one of 18 players to have been in the 2014 playoff loss and the 2016 playoff loss. “It’s just something that it’s definitely something, I mean, it’s not a revenge thing it’s just something that is in the back of your mind and I guess that might be useful when it’s game time.”

Sunday will be the fifth time the Cowboys have played the Packers since 2014. They have won just once, 30-16 in last year’s regular season.

As much as the New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins are the Cowboys’ natural rivals because of their NFC East ties, the Packers have become their nemesis because of what has happened the past two times they have made the playoffs.

“I do think what happens in the NFL is there is turnover with personnel and there is evolution in scheme in all three phases of your team so you’ve got to be careful about saying, ‘We know these guys,’” coach Jason Garrett said. “You’ve got to go back and see who they are right now, who’s playing for them and what they’re doing with those guys. We’ve tried to do that, but there’s no question we each have a background with each other.”

Dak Prescott was not interested in revisiting the playoff game, although he marveled at Rodgers’ third-and-20 throw. He wasn’t interested much in talking about the Cowboys’ convincing regular-season win at Lambeau Field last October either.

But he did acknowledge those games can help the Cowboys in a way on Sunday.

“That’s where last year it is relevant, we can look back and we know how they’re going to play us,” Prescott said. “So it’s going out there and it’s going to be about executing. They know what they’re going to get. We know what we’re going to get. It’s just about executing ball plays.”
Prescott threw six touchdown passes and was intercepted just twice in both games against Green Bay last year. Ezekiel Elliott ran for 282 yards on 50 carries in the two games. Bryant did not play in the regular-season meeting because of a tibial plateau fracture, but in the playoff matchup he caught nine passes for 132 yards and two touchdowns.

Maybe the Packers are exactly what the Cowboys need at this point of the season.

Prescott was able to exact some revenge on the Giants, the only team to beat him twice a year ago, at the start of the season. On Sunday against the Packers, he and the Cowboys will get another chance to right one of their few wrongs of 2016.

“It’s definitely in our heads,” Prescott said. “They knocked us out of the playoffs last year, so I mean we’re going back, I wouldn’t necessarily say for revenge, but to go get a win, to go show them what we’re capable of doing. We’re excited for it. It’s a good matchup. We’ve played them three times in a year. I mean, them and the Giants are the only ones I’ve done that with so far.”
