Just like the Saints their D is impressive but no O. Roth is what, 39? Our pass rush is really going to be a problem for him. They only put 15 on Cleveland.  If we get our O line sorted out, I really don't see any AFC team that can beat  us. 

He's not great but he can still get the ball to Claypool down the field here and there. Diontae Johnson and the other receivers aren't the biggest/fastest but they get open consistently, understand how to exploit zone coverages, and flat out make plays on contested catches. Their quick passing game will be tough for us to handle with the zone-heavy approach we've been deploying. Najee Harris is also a problem in that his stats don't reflect how good he's been running and he's a legitimate threat in the passing game. As we know, pass-catching RBs give this team fits. They aren't world beaters but I think they're constructed in a way that will give us problems. Hope I'm wrong and we roll them though. I'm tired of losing to the Steelers.

You're welcome Titans fans.....  

The Ravens were letting Jackson be more of a drop back passer so teams initially were scared of his running so weren't rushing him. After Jackson started doing well teams decided to treat Jackson like

Well, I wonder who Dungy will pick as the top AFC team this week now that his Ravens flopped.    I mean, there's just no AFC team who's been consistently good against top teams over the last

Did anyone watch the Ravens game last night? I am so jealous of Miami. Their offense is amazing. The motion they use is spectacular. Late in the game they brought a back across the formation and he was wide open for about a 60 yarder. Ravens simply lost him in the clutter. They did the same thing earlier by bringing the TE on the right across the back of the formation and he got loose for a nice gain.  Hell, even Vanderbilt used to run a variation off this called the TE around where he went behind and got a handoff and it worked for yards, kind of like a jet sweep, but defenders usually don't follow a blocking TE. 

 

And the throwback. Wow. They start with a handoff on a sweep to the RB, who then turns around and throws back to the QB, who in turn then throws it back to the RB. Worked fantastic. Someone has a great mind.

I'm sorry Joel but I have to disagree.  That offense was unwatchable.

Dolphins sucked.  When they would run the same quick play action as the Titans, they'd get maybe 4 yards if they were lucky enough to complete the pass.  That's why they had to go deep in the playbook to make plays.  Their offense couldn't get the job done otherwise.

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they did.  But I ain't looking for that kind of play from our team.

The Ravens D is still viable, but not what it was last year or the year before. I thought what they did was very creative. I realize once you have seen a few plays like that you can prepare for them, but I had not seen any like that this year. I bet we would have been taken for a few yards too. It's not like we have never lost a guy for a big play.

Man I hope this is downplaying the Ravens chance at the #1 seed (which i agree with) and you don't actually think the Steelers are good.

The Steelers have 3 losses.  They can take the #1 seed from the Titans by winning the game at Three Rivers.  That win would give both teams 3 losses and they would own the head to head tie breaker.

 

As of today, the Steelers are the only AFC team that controls its own destiny vs. the Titans in the race for the #1 seed.  The only team.


I agree.  The Steelers and Patriots are threats because they can both put a loss on the Titans and benefit from the tie breaker.  Titans need to keep treating the regular season as the playoffs.

The seed is going to be settled by the schedule.  The AFC north's teams schedule are all rough.  The Steelers QB cannot throw deep.  Harris is the new play toy and their OL is just not great.  Their DL is elite.  That makes them tough.  If you throw on them you can beat them.  

 

Buffalo is 5-3 playing a schedule to date that had a .377 win pct.  Their schedule gets a lot worse.  They play NE twice in Dec.  So NE and Buffalo are losing. 

 

TN played their tough part of the schedule.  They went 7-2.  

 

Right now people think losing Henry is a bigger deal than it might be because TN schedule is favorable.  I think future injuries in the AFC pack may let some of the 5 loss teams now have a WC shot.

With TN front 4 Ben is meat behind that line.  I think TN big issue with Pitt is Tanny turning the ball over to that DL on sack strips.  As we saw against the Ram that changes a game.  

 

Steelers have always had TN number because we run into their fronts.  NE always beats Pitt because they spread Pitts to the throw to win.  TN OL is not geared to deal with Pitt DL.  I think NE DL will also give TN problems.  

 

Somebody not named AJB has to step up here.  I still think 28 is going to be a player in this offense.  But we need a WR and one TE to do something.  If Tanny goes on a run and does not turn it over I think TN is going to be very tough.
