Tennessee Titans vs New York Jets: Week 4 Staff Predictions

Quite frankly, I would be disappointed with anything less than a blowout in this game. The Jets have to be the NFL’s worst 2-1 team, having beaten the lowly Buccaneers and an average-at-best Bills team at home.

The Titans are rolling into this game fresh off an exciting last-second victory after unveiling a much more efficient, balanced offense. The defense looked great, too—as it has for most of the season—holding an electric Chargers offense (I couldn’t help myself, the pun is just too easy) to only 17 points. This Jets team is nowhere near as talented as San Diego was, not to mention the fact that they are quarterbacked by a rookie. I expect the relentless Tennessee pass rush to get after Geno Smith and rack up the sacks like it did in Week 1.

Much like the Titans, the Jets actually have overachieved on the defensive side of the ball thus far. However, I predict that will change this week. New York saw Chris Johnson‘s speed first hand last season when he ripped off a 94-yard touchdown on Monday night. I don’t think Johnson will have another run quite like that one, but I would not be surprised to see him break his first long touchdown of the season. As for the passing attack, Jake Locker has done a lot to earn my trust so far this season and I don’t expect him to do anything that will change that this week. If he can stay turnover-free for the fourth week in a row, the Titans will cruise to victory.
