Overreaction Monday: Joe Burrow, Zach Wilson, Tennessee Titans

  • It might be time to officially label Joe Burrow as an elite quarterback in the NFL.
  • Should the New York Jets look to move on from Zach Wilson already?
  • The Tennessee Titans could very well be a Top-five team in the NFL.

CINCINNATI – After another Sunday in the NFL has drawn to a close, many overreactions are being made. Joe Burrow, Zach Wilson, and the Tennessee Titans are the subjects of this week’s takes.

Joe Burrow Is Officially An Elite Quarterback

Joe Burrow was on his way to being an elite quarterback last season prior to his injury. He was averaging 268.8 passing yards per game and has only improved since. Burrow is sixth in the NFL in passing yards and is averaging 279.4 yards per game. He’s currently only behind Dak Prescott in odds to win Comeback Player of the Year on NFL betting sites.

NFL Comeback Player Of The Year Odds

  • Dak Prescott -300
  • Joe Burrow +700
  • Jameis Winston +1600

Burrow is also tied for fourth in passing touchdowns this season and is completing a higher percentage of his passes (68.9%) than guys like Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan, Patrick Mahomes, and Tom Brady. He is coming off of a 416-yard, three-touchdown performance against the Baltimore Ravens in which he led his team to a 41-17 victory.

Is It Time To Call Zach Wilson A Bust?

The term “bust” is often overused and that could be true with Zach Wilson as well but the New York Jets have got to be thinking about trying to find another quarterback already. Wilson is averaging just 194.7 passing yards per game on 57.5% completion and has tallied just four touchdowns and nine interceptions through six games.

Wilson started the season with +1000 odds to be named the Offensive Rookie of the Year and was one of the top options but has since fallen off the boards with online sportsbooks.

NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year Odds

  • Ja’Marr Chase +250
  • Mac Jones +450
  • Trevor Lawrence +800
  • Najee Harris +800
  • Justin Fields +850
  • Trey Lance +1000
  • Rondale Moore +2000
  • Zach Wilson +2500

Now, Wilson will miss multiple weeks due to an injury that will only make the Jets’ franchise worse. Nobody was expecting a rookie to come out and tear up the league, but Wilson started the season worse than expected and hasn’t been showing any signs of improvement. Leading the NFL in interceptions despite being 25th in passing attempts is not a good sign, regardless of age or possible potential.

The Tennessee Titans Are Super Bowl Contenders

The Tennessee Titans opened the season with +2800 odds to win the Super Bowl. Their odds have shortened a little while also moving as far as +4500 after their loss to the Jets. However, all seems to be forgiven as they’ve beaten the Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs in back-to-back weeks.

Super Bowl 56 Odds

  • Buffalo Bills +500
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +500
  • Los Angeles Rams +750
  • Arizona Cardinals +800
  • Green Bay Packers +1000
  • Dallas Cowboys +1100
  • Baltimore Ravens +1200
  • Kansas City Chiefs +1200
  • Tennessee Titans +1600

The Titans are sitting with the ninth-shortest odds, but have only three AFC teams with shorter odds, two of which they’ve beaten already this season. Tennessee is -500 to win the AFC South, meaning their spot in the playoffs is firmly expected which is more than half the battle of making a Super Bowl run.
