Joshua: In two games against the Titans in 2012, J.J. Watt had 11 tackles with four sacks, four stuffs and a forced fumble. The Titans tried to correct this issue when they restructured the interior of their offensive line with Andy Levitre, Chance Warmack and Rob Turner. Will that focus make any difference when this offensive lines tries to contain Watt?

Forsha: If the Titans are improved at the offensive line compared to last season then yes, I don’t see Watt getting those type of numbers … but Watt does have one game under his belt where he a two solo tackles, one assist and he had a batted down a pass against the Chargers last week.
Still he is the reigning Defensive Player of the Year, and as he gets used to playing in complete games and game action period as he stood on the sidelines during the preseason.
Though the Titans are improved, I see Watt having a much better game this week than he did in the season opener.
