How involved were Titans players at the 2020 Pro Bowl?
The 2019 Tennessee Titans can officially close the storybook on what was one of the best season's in franchise history. Limping to a 2-4 start, head coach Mike Vrabel did the improbable leading his squad to a 9-7 regular season finish, a playoff birth, and the AFC Championship game.
At the 2020 Pro Bowl, the Titans were well represented with players appearing in all three facets of the game.
Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry both played limited roles on the offensive side with the QB going one for two for 60 yards with a touchdown and interception.
Henry, on the other hand, had four carries for 17 yards and two receptions for 22.
On defense, tackle Jurrell Casey was rather quiet finishing with just one tackle and one quarterback pressure.
The most voted for punter, Brett Kern, actually had to do something in the Pro Bowl this year - he did not punt once a year ago - as he had one kick for 42 yards.
So, how did the Titans fare in Orlando? Average at best.
Kern and Henry were the only two Tennessee players to make it to the game in the first wave of voting while Tannehill, Casey, cornerback Logan Ryan, guard Rodger Saffold, long snapper Beau Brinkley, and safety Kevin Byard were included as alternates.
It was expected that Titans players would be on the fringe of what was an incredibly skilled AFC squad, but it is still disappointing to look at the stats and see how little Derrick Henry did.
We fans can now put all our focus into the offseason and follow what the team does in free agency and how the draft goes.
