Tennessee Titans Predictions: Realistic View for 2013 Season

Here are some Tennessee Titans predictions for the 2013-14 NFL season. What can fans and critics expect? Are they ready to challenge for the AFC South title or a wild-card berth?

Tennessee Titans (0-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers
Tennessee Titans (0-2) at Houston Texans
San Diego Chargers at Tennessee Titans (1-2)
New York Jets at Tennessee Titans (2-2)
Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans (3-2)
Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks (3-3)
San Francisco 49ers at Tennessee Titans (3-4)
Tennessee Titans (3-5) at St. Louis Rams
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (4-5)
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans (5-5)
Tennessee Titans (6-5) at Oakland Raiders
Tennessee Titans (6-6) at Indianapolis Colts
Tennessee Titans (6-7) at Denver Broncos
Arizona Cardinals at Tennessee Titans (7-7)
Tennessee Titans (8-7) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans (9-7)

The Titans will end the regular season at 9-7, hoping the AFC is bad enough that they could snag a wild-card spot.

This offseason, they addressed the offense but didn’t fill in major holes on defense. They added veteran safeties to help out with the poor secondary play. These guys can only be as good as the front seven. The defensive run game will still be an issue. The secondary will still look sloppy. To really contend, the Titans must be a team that consistently scores more than 21 points a game.

There are many offensive weapons, all in the hands of Jake Locker. Can they score more than 21 points per game? They can’t count on Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene to score like the former Smash and Dash did in 2008. There’s a difference between the 2008 and 2013 versions. 2008 had a great defensive unit. If the Titans let Locker throw downfield more, then they have plenty of playmakers who can get the ball in the end zone.

Dowell Loggains must be aggressive at points in the game, letting Locker throw downfield. Although the Titans will improve from last season, the defense must keep rebuilding. A coaching change may be near.

    OK. Here we go. I think the Titans have a legit chance to snag a win in Pittsburgh. I think they’ll win against Kansas City and Indy, but they’ll drop a game or two that they shouldn’t. I think they’ll fall between 8-8 and 10-6. I’m an optimist so I’ll say 10-6.

    With so much attention paid to stopping the run I believe the Titans will be better up front than many people believe. With Greg Williams running the D-Line I think they’ll be aggressive in pass rushing which will result in Griffin snatching some interceptions and the LB’s getting their hands on some tipped balls. The secondary will be the weak link in the defense though. They’ll have to rely on the offense to play ball control with the run game and score touchdowns instead of field goals for the Titans to have a chance at playoffs.

    Good points you have. I’m not afraid of Pittsburgh I solely took them in this game because they have home field advantage, better coach, veteran players and they just don’t lose home openers (10 straight). I would feel much more comfortable playing them in the middle of the season. we really don’t know how this Titans team looks with all the new additions but we do know what we’re getting out of Pittsburgh. and your correct we will not win with just field goals…this is where Jake Locker and Dowell Loggains come into play. LETS SEE WHAT THEY GOT!!!!!!
