The Tennessee Titans have work to do after dropping to 2-2 on the season.

Here’s what we’ve learned about a beat-up Tennessee Titans team after Week 4. Seriously, have you seen how many guys are injured on this roster?

There’s no real chemistry at wide receiver. The offensive line is going to get the quarterback killed. They still have the game’s best running back, but there is growing concern that he’s taking a lot of punishment while wasting some very good seasons on teams that are average (or worse).

We’ve all learned that the Tennessee Titans aren’t good enough to overcome things like bad snaps on third-and-one, being unable to convert in the red zone, and random busts in coverage, even if the opponent is a ‘bad’ football team.

The New York Jets exposed the Titans. Yes, we mean the Jets. Tennessee, in Week 4, went to war with a winless football team and were outcoached, overmatched and slapped around like they were the inferior team. Oh, and did we mention that the Jets were led by a rookie coach and rookie quarterback that hadn’t thrown a single touchdown pass since Week 1?

This one, even long after its conclusion, is a head-scratcher, but it’s time to offer a few final thoughts before turning the page to Week 5. The Jacksonville Jaguars are now on the horizon. Here’s one last look at the studs and duds from a forgettable performance. Yes, we were able to identify some studs.
