Big sigh of relief for the Tennessee Titans.
The Tennessee Titans offense had their best full game of action this past week against the Los Angeles Chargers.
A large part of that success can be directly attributed to the offensive line, specifically how well Taylor Lewan, Ben Jones and even Rodger Saffold played against a banged up but still dangerous front seven for the Chargers.
So, when the right side (who also did some nice things) missed the second half of the game and the production dropped off at both RG and RT, it was fair to wonder how the team would handle the likes of Ndamukong Suh and Carl Nassib from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this weekend.
The Tennessee Titans need to go on a run or at the very least start putting up back to back wins pretty regularly. I don’t mean to state the obvious, but when you are 3-4 you have to go 7-2 in your last nine games to make it to 10-wins, which is the goal and it means that you are almost guaranteed a spot in the playoffs.

Now, we are a long way off from that but the way that you can make tangible progress towards that goal is to win back to back home games.
With Taylor Lewan and Shaq Barrett set to do battle on the left side and Jack Conklin set to deal with Nassib on the right side, you have to feel like you are in for some pretty solid matchups.
Nate Davis was on the way to having his best game of the season by a wide margin (at least according to PFF) before he got hurt with a rib injury. So, getting him and Ben Jones back together along with a potentially(?) improved Rodger Saffold would be a big deal.
Going against one of the most dominant pass rushes in the NFL on paper, you want to have all your options open and not be backed into any bad situations. It looks like the Titans managed to avoid that fate on Sunday and it could make all the difference in not only the game, but the season.
