The Titans need a bounce back here. After today they don’t have a home game for almost a month (11/11 when the Patriots come to Nashville is the next one). That month includes a trip to London to face the Chargers, the BYE week and the Monday Night Football game in Dallas against the Cowboys. The Titans really need to win this game.
That won’t be easy against a resurgent Baltimore offense. This is not the same team that came to Nissan Stadium last season when Joe Flacco was Captain Checkdown with no weapons on the outside. This year they are really strong at WR with John Brown over the top, Willie Snead working the middle and Michael Crabtree underneath. The Titans secondary will be tested today.
This is a rare 3:25 central start for the Titans. Make a note of that. The Titans don’t have another noon central kick until that Patriots game on November 11th. That’s weird.
I still don’t really have a good feel for this game. I’m going to take the Titans to win outright 20-17.
