5 things to look for after half for the Tennessee Titans.

Something to make this game watchable.

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

This team is horrible. I know they beat a terrible team like the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, but against a team with any semblance of skill, this team will struggle.

At the half, the New York Jets are on pace to score 50+ points. They are having an easier time scoring on the Titans than the Titans did against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to start the season. So, if you are really such a glutton for punishment that you really want to finish this game, here are five things that are worth watching.

1. Marcus Mariota

Mariota is hitting guys in the hands and moving as best he can, but he honestly can't play every position. Between Delanie Walker dropping the ball on the first offensive play of the game, and DGB dropping a perfect pass in the middle of the field, this team has just done nothing to help their quarterback.

2. Brian Orakpo

Orakpo was on pace for a career best season, however he isn't rushing the passer like he was early in the season. I think it will be really interesting to see how a leader like Orakpo who has been in games like this before as a member of the Washington Redskins, bounces back.

3. Avery Williamson

Williamson came in ready to set some records for the Titans. He should be the first player in Titans history to start his career with two 100+ tackle seasons. He needs to do something to make an impact against a team that is just destroying the Titans on the ground.

4. Dorial Green-Beckham

The Titans are in desperate need of a wide receiver that can do something. He got open a few times but had a drop that killed a drive. He owes Marcus Mariota a big second half after hanging him out to dry into the first half.

5. Delanie Walker

He came into this game four catches away from a Titans record, but now it is definitely not a given that he will break that today. Walker needs to redefine himself as Mariota's security blanket if the Titans have any hope of making this game respectively.
