Loser No. 1: Offensive Line
This was a tough “loser” to mark, because as far as the running game goes, the offensive line did a pretty good job opening holes for Derrick Henry to rush to.
The reason they are getting the “loser” designation this week is because of their poor pass protection.
As was previously mentioned, Tannehill was sacked six times in this game, and a lot of these sacks came at the worst times.
In the first half, three of the four sacks were drive-killers, as two of them would come on third downs, with the other causing the second Titans fumble of the game.
The offensive line has struggled with protecting both Tannehill and Marcus Mariota all season, and it’s been difficult to watch, especially when you consider how much money the Titans have invested into their offensive line.
Again, they deserve credit for how well they played as far as run blocking went, but their pass protection must improve.
