Tennessee Titans at Oakland Raiders: 3 players to watch in Week 14
After a mediocre start to the season, Daryl Worley has been dominant down the stretch run. After trading Gareon Conley to the Houston Texans prior to week eight, Worley was elevated to the Raiders No.1 cornerback role and he’s actually been better since then.
Worley is only allowing opposing teams to convert passes at a rate of 48.6% when targeting him. In his last four games, opponents have only thrown for a passer rating of 63.9 when throwing at Worley’s side of the field, giving Paul Guenther’s defense a boost after being hit with multiple injuries to the backend.
Since Ryan Tannehill took over as the starting quarterback in Tennessee, they’ve averaged 243 passing yards per game. While Tannehill isn’t known as a gunslinger that will beat you over the top, he is playing arguably some of the best football of his NFL career.
Ultimately, Worley has been one of Oakland’s best defenders throughout the recent weeks, and he’s someone to keep an eye on as he matches up against Corey Davis and A.J Brown on the outside.
