There were four big takeaways from the Tennessee Titans’ Week 9 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
Tennessee Titans fans witnessed yet another poor showing from their team in Week 9, as the Titans fell victim to the Carolina Panthers in a 30-20 loss.
As we’ve seen time and time again, the Titans came out sluggish and saw a slew of penalties from the offensive line that killed early drives before they got off the ground. The offensive gameplan was backwards, and the offense simply wasn’t able to cover for the defense, which had by far its worst performance of the 2019 campaign.
There were some obvious takeaways, and we’re going to take a look at four of them in total, starting with the issue at kicker.
1. Ryan Succop isn’t our savior after all
Titans fans were all delighted when kicker Ryan Succop was activated this week after the kicking woes the team saw over the course of the season. He was supposed to fix those issues, however he did anything but that in Week 9.
Succop attempted three field goals and missed all of them. We won’t get on him for the missed 56-yarder at the end of the first half, but he did have attempts from 42 and 43 yards that both missed.
The Titans needed Succop to be ready to go immediately upon his return, and it looks like he wasn’t. Tennessee’s kicking issues aren’t solved, as now Succop is the latest kicker we can’t trust.
