Tennessee Titans: 5 Things to watch in game 2

3 of 6

It was pretty obvious that the Tennessee Titans offensive line had their problems on Thursday night in Atlanta.

Not only did they not provide many holes for starting running back Bishop Sankey to run through, they were responsible for the sack on Marcus Mariota, and were a huge contributor to the fumble that Mariota suffered early in the game.

As I said earlier in this post, the offensive line will face a more seasoned defense this week with the Rams, and one that has arguably a lot more talent.

The Titans are working on the problem this week in training camp, and the trial fixes do not include veteran guard Andy Levitre.

In fact, Jim Wyatt at Titansonline reported on Monday that the Titans were working Byron Bell at left guard and Jamon Meredith is getting some snaps at right tackle.

The Titans gain some size and strength with that lineup, but lose Levitre’s athleticism. After struggling up front in the preseason opener at Atlanta, however, it’s clear the Titans are going to consider all options moving forward in order to improve.

Levitre has been a two-year starter in his time with the Titans, but has never really lived up to the big contract he was given after being acquired from the Buffalo Bills.

Center Brian Schwenke has been hobbled with some foot problems this week and his status is uncertain at this time for Sunday night.
