Sunday Night Football open thread: Titans at Rams

Can the Titans overcome a major injury, or will the Rams keep rolling?

Hopefully this has been a relaxing Sunday for Lions fans! To cap off the weekend, we get the Los Angeles Rams hosting the Tennessee Titans.

The Rams are looking to cement themselves as top-dog in the NFL with a win tonight. Los Angeles is sitting at 7-1, and a prime reason for this successful season is Matthew Stafford. Stafford is arguably the frontrunner for MVP right now, as he and Cooper Kupp have established chemistry we haven’t seen since his days of throwing to Calvin Johnson. Coupled with an efficient run game from Darrell Henderson, the Rams offense is tough. The defense itself got a boost too with the acquisition of Von Miller this past week, although the Rams won’t rush him into action, as he’s inactive tonight.

The Titans, meanwhile, lost their best offensive threat. Derrick Henry has been the focal point of the Titans offense, but with a potentially season-ending injury, the burden will have to fall on the arm of Ryan Tannehill. A.J. Brown and Julio Jones are two solid targets for Tannehill, but you have to wonder if defenses will fear a run game without Henry. Jeremy McNichols and Adrian Peterson figure to lead the way in the backfield, but due to inexperience for the former and age for the latter, replacing Henry couldbe a tough task.

Here is how to watch tonight’s game:

Time: 8:20 p.m. ET
