Notes:

Perrish Cox is a go for today, but this is a huge test for Dick LeBeau. So far, he has been making it work with a patchwork defensive backfield, but he was never missing two corners that played so much time. Now the Titans will have to rely on Cox, Coty Sensabaugh, and Cody Riggs to play significant time. Personally, I am kind of excited to see what Riggs can do. He has been very good in short bursts and he reminds me of Coty Sensabaugh in year one.

Also, Kendall Wright is a huge blow to the explosiveness of this offense but I am curious to see how Marcus Mariota handles it. Harry Douglas and Delanie Walker have been Mariota's security blankets more than Wright and if Whiz was manufacturing offensive touches to Wright because he was upset about his role in the offense, this should make it easier to spread the ball out.

New Orleans Saints

Notes:

The biggest injury in this game is the Saints not having Kikaha. The rookie out of Washington was one of my favorite prospects coming out, but injuries have always plagued him. When he is on the field he is a very good pass rusher that can affect a lot of passing plays even if he isn't getting to the QB. This is a lucky break for the Titans who have been struggling to protect quarterbacks.
