Tennessee Titans: Reasons for concern and optimism in Week 13 vs. Colts
Concern: Colts’ offensive line
While the Colts might be missing some key players on offense, they still have one of, if not the best, offensive lines in all of football. This impressive group upfront is led by guard Quenton Nelson and tackle Anthony Castonzo, both of whom are having sensational seasons.
Now, the offensive line can’t run or catch the ball (I know, I know, the Titans have two touchdown passes to offensive linemen this season), but it can make quarterback Jacoby Brissett‘s job easier by giving him time to throw and allow his receivers to get open.
The offensive line is also another reason to fear what has been an elite run game in Indy all season long. No matter who is in the backfield (it’ll be Jonathan Williams primarily this week), if the offensive line is opening up holes like it has, the running back is going to succeed.
The Titans will need to get pressure on Brissett and force him into mistakes when throwing to what is a very inexperienced receiving corps. overall. More importantly, the Titans must plug up the holes to stop the run game and make Brissett beat them by himself.
