Tennessee Titans' Offense Comes Up Big in Win Against the Bills

For the second straight week the Tennessee Titans offense and Matt Hasselbeck produced in a big way. The Titans have now won two of their last three games and face the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday for a divisional game.

The Titans scored early and often as the Buffalo Bills defense looked horrid once again. Coming into the game everybody thought that the Titans would be able to run the ball, and they did with Chris Johnson leading the team with 18 carries for 195 yards and 2 TDs. Johnson scored on a 16 yard run and an 83 yard run in the first quarter. Jamie Harper also helped out the offense by running for two scores.

Matt Hasselbeck continued to be a steadying force for the entire offense, finishing the game 22-33 for 205 yards and one TD. That TD happened to come on a 4th and 9 play with 1:03 left to play in the game as Hasselbeck hit Nate Washington to put the Titans up by one. Hasselbeck did not throw an interception but was sacked twice and finished with a rating of 93.6.

The Bills defense was ripe for the taking. Especially on the ground where they had allowed 937 rushing yards in their last four games. That works out to 234.3 yards a game on the ground. Chris Johnson’s 83 yard TD scamper gave him four TD runs of 80+ yards in his career which broke the record of three held by four players.

The offense put 35 points and scored at least a TD in every quarter. The offense converted 9-14 3rd downs and racked up 21 first downs. Its hard to really find any fault in the Titans offensive performance, so I won’t.

I give them an A+
