The Titans opened as a 4 point underdog. That number has moved up to 7. That is what we call the "Charlie Whitehurst factor." The people in Vegas don't have a lot of confidence in him- nor do I.
We spend most of our time talking about the quarterback position, but the Titans are missing a lot of guys due to injury this week. They will be without Shonn Greene, Taylor Thompson and Coty Sensabuagh in this one, and that doesn't even take into account the three opening day starters, Michael Roos, Bernard Pollard and Craig Stevens, that are on IR.
Even with all of that, this is still a game the Titans can win if they play well. A win here would get them to 3-4 and give them a shot to get to 4-4 heading into the bye. That would really help the confidence of this team.
