How Tennessee Titans will play against Washington Redskins
As the Tennessee Titans prepare for a game against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, there is still a lot to be done before the first quarter of the game can begin.
Here are five things to watch: 1.
Who is the Titans starting quarterback?
Who is making the most plays and how much is he getting for his efforts?
Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker, who has not started a game since Week 10, is the most productive player on the team and is not afraid to throw the ball into the ground when he feels like it.
He’s averaging 7.7 yards per attempt this season.
He also has completed 61.2 percent of his passes.
His receivers are making plays.
Running back Mike Tolbert leads the team with 18 rushing touchdowns, and he is one of the top receiving tight ends in the league.
He has scored at least 15 points in nine straight games.
Offensive tackle Corey Liuget is averaging 3.5 sacks a game and is one stop away from being the league’s top pass rusher.
Defensive end Anthony Barr is third on the Titans with four interceptions, and linebacker Derrick Morgan is second with five.
Can the Titans make it to the Super Bowl?
This is a big test for the Tennessee team, but the Titans are one of just four teams that can claim to be the Super Bowden Trophy contenders, which is a term given to teams that win a Super Bowl after a year.
If the Titans can get the job done, it will be a very difficult task.
Who are the Washington players?
The Washington defense has been playing poorly and has surrendered a league-high 28 points per game.
The Titans have allowed the fewest points per attempt (24.7) and allowed a league high 40 points per contest.
The Redskins have allowed only one rushing touchdown this season, and they’ve been shutout in four straight games by Washington.
Who will the Washington secondary be playing?
The Titans are allowing a league low 8.2 yards per play, but they have three interceptions.
They have not allowed more than seven points in a game all season.
Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins has been sacked just twice this season and is throwing for a career-high 4,854 yards.
How good is the Washington offense?
Washington has averaged only 24.5 points per outing and has allowed at least 24 points in seven of its last nine games.
The defense has allowed a combined 19 points per performance.
Washington has not allowed a touchdown pass in its last six games.
How can the Titans beat Washington?
There are a lot of questions about the Washington offensive line, which has allowed seven sacks, but there are also a lot more questions about how the Titans offensive line can stop a good quarterback.
That’s why the Titans need to play hard on defense and play with energy.
The best way to do that is by having good ball protection and not getting rattled.
