But if they can’t run the football, the Falcons should be able to throw on an average Philadelphia secondary which could have a hard time covering all the Falcon’s passing game weapons, including wide receiver Julio Jones and Mohamed Sanu along with tight end Austin Hooper.
The gap between Titans QB Marcus Mariota and Patriots QB Tom Brady is significant.
This past regular season, Mariota threw just 13 touchdowns and Brady threw 32.
Also, the Titans’ pass defense is suspect, and they could have a difficult time covering the Patriots’ myriad weapons, like wide receivers Danny Amendola, Brandin Cooks, Phillip Dorsett and Kenny Britt, along with all-world tight end Rob Gronkowski.
In that game, Jaguars QB Blake Bortles ran for more yards (88) than he threw for (87).
