OFFENSE

Once again, the Titans are facing a fairly weak running defense.  It will be important for the Titans to get into a rhythm on the ground early with LenDale White and Chris Brown.  Controlling the clock could make for an easy win.

The Bucs are probably going to load up to stop the run.  It will be important for Vince Young to hit some throws early to make the defense respect the pass.  If he can make some big plays down the field it will open up the running lanes for White and Brown.

I want to see Vince make some plays with his legs in this game.  He has looked hesitant to run the ball thus far this season.  He is at his best running around and making plays.  I am ready to see that again.

DEFENSE

The Titans' defense will need to shut down the Buccanneers running game.  They are a team that likes control the clock.  Their offense is not designed for a lot of big plays.  The Titans need to keep the Bucs in obvious passing downs.

The Titans defense needs to keep Jeff Garcia in the pocket.  He likes to roll out and make plays on the run.  If the Titans can keep Garcia in the pocket they will force him to make mistakes.

The Titans defense needs to keep forcing turnovers like they have the last 2 games.  The offense will probably need some help against a stout Bucs defense.

The Titans are going to have to play better than last week to win this game.  There is no doubt in my mind that they will.  We have all seen how Vince Young plays following a bad game.  I am excited to see what he will do in this game.

Be sure and join us here for the game.  We have had some good discussion going during the games this season.

GO TITANS!!
