Titans vs. Packers: 3 Keys on Offense

Three things the Titans have to do at Lambeau tomorrow in order to have any chance to win the game.

Frederick Breedon

1. Stay balanced: The worst thing the Titans offense can do in this game, besides turn the ball over, is have a bunch of three and outs. The Titans' defense has played better, but there is no doubt they are over-matched in this one. They are going to need some help from the offense.

That starts with the offense sustaining drives, and they are going to have to run the football in order to do that. The Packers' defense is good when they can make a team one dimensional. Chris Johnson needs to take what is there on the early downs to keep the team in 3rd and short. That hasn't always been his strength, but he has been better at doing that this season.

2. Hit the big plays: There have been quite a few big play chances in the last few games that the Titans have just missed. Most of the time the miss is a result of an overthrow from Jake Locker. He cannot afford to miss those throws in this one because they are going to need all of the points they can get in this one.

3. Stay creative: Dowell Loggains showed a couple of new things in the game against the Jets. There was the read option that didn't work, and the designed QB sweep that did work. The biggest benefit to having Locker in the game is the athleticism he brings to the table. Big plays are often the result of new wrinkles from an offense. Loggains needs to pull out all of the stops in this one.
