5. Adrian Amos
Adrian Amos has been playing some of the best football of his career over the past month. Mike Pettine has added even more responsibility to Amos with the injury of Raven Greene, and he has responded well.
When Pettine resorts to his preferred dime package, Amos will be the man tasked with helping against the run. And as I have harped on plenty so far, the key to beating the Titans will be to stop the run.
Derrick Henry will give the Titans their best option to beat Green Bay.
But that’s not all they have. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis can be difference-makers and that’s where Amos becomes even more of a factor. Amos is the key communicator in the back end and will need to ensure the secondary knows their assignments.
A good portion of the Titans’ pass plays could come off run-action, much the same way Green Bay does, and confusion will bleed into big gains.
Amos is the veteran leader who makes sure that doesn’t happen.
Green Bay could have the chance to lock in the number one seed Sunday night.
If all should fall into place, the game against the Titans could lock up the that spot and ensure all roads come through Lambeau.
