I hate to say it, but I smell a blowout coming this weekend.
Seahawks at home? Check. Jake Locker on the sideline due to injury? Check. Chris Johnson still waiting to hit his stride? Check. That’s all you need to know.
We already saw how anemic Tennessee’s offense is with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm last Sunday, so don’t expect to see anything different when the Titans roll into Seattle. The Seahawks are notoriously dominant at home and they are coming off their first loss of the season, so that defense will be playing with an even bigger chip on its shoulder than usual.
Seattle is second in the league in forced turnovers, and despite Tennessee’s ball security with Locker running the show, Fitzpatrick threw two costly interceptions last Sunday. Realistically, the Titans would be lucky if he only throws one pick this weekend.
Defensively, Tennessee has played well, even in the team’s losses. Unfortunately, I expect the Titans to have their worst defensive showing of the season Sunday against a very balanced Seattle offense. As was the case against Kansas City, Tennessee’s defense will look worse on paper than on film due to the offense’s inability to sustain drives.
