Welcome to your NFL Open Thread for Week Three of the season.
Today's UCLA/NFL Game of the Week takes place in Nashville, where the Denver Broncos visit the Tennessee Titans.
Usually, we look to the Jacksonville when we want to see Bruins doing their thing in the pros, with Maurice Jones-Drew and Marcedes Lewis both playing featured roles in the Jaguars offense. But this week we're going with their AFC divisional rival, the Tennessee Titans. I've watched the Titans twice this year (when you hit your knees tonight to say your prayers, please be sure to thank The Big Guy for Direct TV's Sunday Ticket)) and there are three Bruins getting serious time on the Titans defense. On the Titans depth chart, you'll find rookie Akeem Ayers starting at linebacker, while defensive end Dave Ball (who is old enough to have played for Bob Toledo) and Alterraun Verner. Though they are on second team on the depth chart both Ball and Verner get a lot of time. Ayers is playing great, he gets his name called quite a bit.
The Broncos at Titans is an NFL early game this week, starting at 10 am
Eastern Pacific. In the afternoon Jarrad Page and the woeful Kansas City Chiefs play the Chargers in San Diego.
