After 2 weeks of what could be considered mediocrity at best, the Seahawks will head to the Country Music Capital of the world to take on the Titans. It’s been nearly a decade since the Titans have seen the postseason, but with a host of talented veterans and a great young QB, the Titans of 2017 look poised to give teams around the league a run for their money.
Key to Titan’s offense:
64, 33, and 0. Random numbers? Don’t bet on it! These numbers represent Marcus Mariota’s proficiency in the red zone. So far in his career, Mariota has a 64% completion percentage to go along with 33 TDs and no picks. Best in the NFL by far!
Key to Titan’s defense:
The key to beating the Seahawks, at this point, seems simple. Load the box and attack the porous o-line. The Titans defense has averaged 2 sacks a game through week two. Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo could have a field day if the Seattle o-line doesn’t find some continuity.
The X factor:
The Titans defense is at the bottom half of the league against the run. If Chris Carson continues to be as effective as he’s been in Seattle’s first two games, Russell Wilson should be able to lead his offense on sustained drives and dominate Time of Possession.
The Seahawks currently hold a 10-5 advantage in head to head record versus the Titans/Oilers franchise. Seattle is 8-2 in their last 10 meetings, dating back to 1988.
Seahawks win 28-24 in a close game.
