Titans Strike First Against Seahawks

Posted by Craig Peters on October 13, 2013 – 3:55 pm

The Titans took a 3-0 lead on the Seahawks by moving 72 yards on nine plays during their second possession. The drive started at the Tennessee 7-yard line, lasted 4:43 and ended with a 38-yard field goal by Rob Bironas.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, who started in place of injured Jake Locker for the second straight week, completed three straight passes to Kendall Wright and was 4-of-5 passing for 55 yards on the drive. Fitzpatrick also prevented disaster on the first play of the drive when he corralled a high shotgun snap. The next play resulted in a 32-yard gain to Wright, followed by gains of 11 and 4. Fitzpatrick scrambled for a gain of 5 and drew a penalty against Richard Sherman on a late hit out of bounds that moved the ball to the Seattle 30.

After a short run by Chris Johnson, Fitzpatrick narrowly missed an end zone throw to Damian Williams. On third-and-9, the Fitzpatrick completed a pass to Justin Hunter on a crossing route, but the rookie was stuffed a yard shy of the first down.

Rather than go for it on fourth-and-short, Titans coach Mike Munchak opted to go for the points from Bironas with 5:16 left in the first quarter.

    Dont think so…I believe that no defense respects our passing game so they’re putting 8 or 9 guys in the box. When Locker was playing CJ lead the AFC in rushing. He only had 12 carries against the Seahawks. The run game will get better. We dont have our Fullback Johnson, he was a huge loss, also we have problems at center an thats were the run game starts. David you dont know football please dont come back to this board. GO TITANS

    Let’s stop with all the excuses…We just aren’t a good football team. We are what we have always been…Average. And Locker’s return won’t do much to change that because he is average as well. True Locker has played well, but it was 4 games against bad teams. Until we as fans demand more from the organization, all we will continue to get is an average product.

    Curson-4life…again stop watching ESPN an worry about your own team.. We are a small market so you will not see us alot on highlights. So stop comparing the Titans to other teams that you MAY think is great. We have alot of football left this year..

    Titanman, I don’t allow ESPN or The Zone to shape my assessment. We are an average team…Meaning we aren’t good. And why shouldn’t we aspire to be like the Pats, Chiefs, or Saints…And for the record, the Chiefs and Saints are also small market teams…They just happen to have a winning record…Unlike us!
