While D.K Metcalf has garnered plenty of hype in his first two NFL seasons, especially for being a big-play machine and a monster down the field, it's actually his college teammate, Tennessee Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown, that has been more impressive in that way.

Since Brown entered the league in 2019, he leads the NFL in both catches of 50-plus yards (8) and touchdowns of 50-plus yards (6), and he added to both of those totals on Sunday against the stout Colts defense.

Brown is as explosive as any young receiver in the game right now. His big-play ability plays a crucial role in a Titans offense that needs a way to stretch the field to keep opponents from stacking the box against Derrick Henry. Against the Colts, both Brown and Henry exploded for monster games.

Brown leads the Titans in targets, receiving yards and touchdowns, despite only playing in nine games so far this season.

If Brown and Henry continue to work in sync as they did against Indy, they will be incredibly difficult to stop come playoff time.
