The 2-point conversion, or 2PC, is two quick points from this week’s game about next week’s game. The first point will highlight a Titan player or unit that was the game-changing factor in this week’s game (vs. Jacksonville Jaguars). While the second point will highlight a weakness of the Titan’s upcoming opponent (this week, the Philadelphia Eagles) from their game.
Titan Offensive Line (12 sacks allowed, 844 rushing yards)
Whether it is protecting Kerry Collins (the limping Vince Young) or paving the way for Chris Johnson, the burden of winning this game will rest squarely on the shoulders of the Titan offensive line. The Eagle’s defensive front has collected 18 sacks and has yet to allow a 100-yard rusher this season. However, the Eagles are giving up more than 115 rushing yards a game and have allowed 39 rushing first downs. Expect the Titans to try and push the Eagles around on Sunday. A gameplan that will only work if their offensive line can control the line of scrimmage.
Eagles Offensive Line (20 sacks allowed, 806 rushing yards)
Watching film preparing for the Titans has to feel like watching horror movies for Kevin Kolb (concussion) and Michael Vick (sore rib cartilage). Each are fragile from injuries and will rely heavily on their suspect line to protect them from a relentless Tennessee defensive front. The loss of DeSean Jackson will only turn-up the heat of a Titan defense that has also forced 10 interceptions in 2010. The West Coast offense will have to be sync in early or Kolb will pay the price.
The Titans are 11-0 in the their last 11 games against NFC opponents and do not look for that streak to be broken here. The Eagles are a finesse team and unless they land a large lead early, their lack of physicality will prevent them from slowing down CJ2K and the Titans in the second half. Look for it to be a close game early, but end poorly for Kolb and the Eagles.
