Last week, Titan Sized gave seven keys to victory for the Tennessee Titans in their Week 4 matchup against the New York Jets. Below is a listing of those seven keys:

  • Quarterback Play
  • Interior Offensive Line (Primarily Rob Turner)
  • Strong Defensive Start
  • Feeding Chris Johnson, Ball-Carriers
  • Eliminating Penalties
  • Turnovers
  • Finishing Drives

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

Jake Locker should have confidence aplenty after his game-winning 94-yard touchdown drive against the San Diego Chargers. Much like his performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers, what’s most important isn’t the amount of total yards on his stat line; it’s the number on the interception column.

Can Locker start his season with four consecutive games without an interception? Unless Locker gives away points and field position, the Jets will have a difficult time scoring enough points to win this matchup. Locker just needs to make enough plays and not let the Jets defense beat him.

REALITY: Despite playing just a little more than one half, Locker threw three touchdowns with zero interceptions. He was in complete control of the offense and continued to display an increasing amount of pocket awareness. Can’t ask for much more from him.

SUCCESS (1 of 1)
