The Tennessee Titans can certainly hold their head high after their overtime loss to the Houston Texans. Not many people outside of Tennessee had the Titans winning the football against one of the best teams in the AFC. However, outside linebacker Zach Brown and Tennessee’s stifling defense have given reason for fans to have hope in 2013.
Brown recorded eight tackles, two sacks and defended one pass in a win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1. He did not register any sacks in Week 2, but he did manage to post 12 total tackles.
The numbers certainly do not lie as Brown is on a mission to prove he deserves to be recognized as one of the best in the business in 2013.
“I had a good season my rookie year. Now, I just want to build off that rookie season and just keep it going and get to the Pro Bowl,” Brown said last week, according to TitansOnline.com. “I’m trying to go to the Pro Bowl every year because it means you’re one of the best at your position, so I just need to keep getting better stats and be consistent at what I do. I never want a down year.”
The Titans are hoping Brown can have a successful season that gets him voted to the Pro Bowl. More importantly, they would like to see him continue leading the defense with his play. Tennessee has shown a tremendous amount of potential in their first two games this season. The hope is that Brown and the rest of the defenders can play at a high level week in and week out.
Giving up 298 passing yards and three touchdowns is not exactly ideal. With that being said, the Titans were able to record two interceptions and two sacks on quarterback Matt Schaub. There is no question Brown and the rest of the defense’s solid effort is something that can be built on going forward.
