5 Hawks on offense the Tennessee Titans must gameplan for
The Seahawks threw the Tennessee Titans a bone by mopping up the floor with the hated Indianapolis Colts. If the Titans want to avoid being their second victim from the AFC South, they’ll want to make sure they gameplan for these guys.
Chris Carson, running back
He isn’t quite Marshawn Lynch, but if any defender runs up on Chris Carson and isn’t quite sure about whether or not he’s interested in making a tackle (or if he isn’t going to wrap this guy up and bring him down), that defender is going to get run over and embarrassed on the wrong side of a highlight.
Tyler Lockett, wide receiver
Tyler Lockett racked up a 25-yards-per-reception average in Week 1 en route to a 100-yard, two-touchdown performance. You can best believe the Titans have been talking about him all week after they were humiliated by DeAndre Hopkins.
D.K. Metcalf, wide receiver
Unfortunately for Tennessee, Lockett isn’t the only wideout the Titans have to account for. D.K. Metcalf, one of the game’s best at his position figures to be a problem all day with his unique blend of size and strength.
Duane Brown, left tackle
One of the goals of this Titans team was to be better at getting to the quarterback. That didn’t happen with Kyler Murray. Russell Wilson won’t be playing the role of a sitting duck either. Duane Brown is the man charged with protecting his blindside.
Brandon Shell, right tackle
If getting to Russell off of Brown’s side is shut down, they’ll, no doubt, try to make an impact rushing on Brandon Shell’s side. Hopefully, this great nephew of Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive lineman Art Shell has an off day.
