Last week, Titan Sized gave eight keys to victory for the Tennessee Titans in their Week 3 matchup against the San Diego Chargers. Here was that article. Below is a listing of those eight keys:

Quarterback Play
Titans Offensive Line vs Chargers Front Seven
Wide Receivers: Who Steps Up in Passing Game?
150-Plus Rushing Yards from Chris Johnson, Jackie Battle
oints Off Turnovers
Covering Antonio Gates, Tight Ends
Plus-or-Minus: Darius Reynaud and Field Position
Finishing Strong

Was this a fair, honest and accurate assessment? Let’s take a look at each synopsis and see whether the Titans accomplished it.



Quarterback Play

Is Jake Locker capable of operating an offense? He may not face an easier test than when he goes up against a Chargers defensive backfield that surrenders an NFL-worst 370 passing yards per game. While Matt Schaub and a Chip Kelly offense can do that to teams, Locker has a chance to silence some doubters during the home-opener.

REALITY: Locker passed that test. What was most impressive about his performance was how he handled the blitz: 10-of-14 for 181 yards with a 137.5 quarterback rating. A very encouraging performance from the third-year quarterback.
