Tennessee Titans @ Dallas Cowboys – ESPN, 8:15 PM

The Titans’ run-heavy offense

The Titans run 65.1% of the time on first-downs, which is the highest rate in the league.

Davis trending upward

Second-year receiver Corey Davis has made immense strides in his second year.

Harold looking to build

Titans’ first-round edge defender Harold Landry has got off to a red-hot start this season. He ranks sixth among rookie edge defenders in total pressures, but he has a tough matchup against a talented Dallas offensive line this week.

Malcolm trending downward

Malcolm Butler has allowed the fourth-most yards among all cornerbacks this year and has only played seven games.

The new addition to the receiving corps

Amari Cooper will look to revitalize his career following his move to the Dallas Cowboys.

Martin one of the best

Zack Martin has been a bright spot along the Dallas offensive line. His 86.7 pass-block grade ranks fourth among all NFL offensive guards.

Demarcus dominating from the left

Lawrence’s 29 total quarterback pressures from the left side are tied for the third-most among edge defenders in 2018. He’ll look to add to his total on Monday night.

Vander Esch making a statement

Boise State alumnus Leighton Vander Esch has quickly put himself in the Defensive Rookie of the Year conversation with his second-ranked 84.1 defense grade.
