The only category the Tennessee Titans are better at than
the Seattle Seahawks is in penalties per game. This might be helpful if the Titans
had, say, at least a couple more categories in their favor but that is not
the case. The Seattle Seahawks welcome the Titans to CenturyLink Field this
Sunday for a chance to right the ship, erase the tough road loss at Indy
last week, and get back to their winning ways. The Hawks are trying to get
healthy again after all the injuries suffered to their offensive line, so
they look forward to the potential return of Max Unger. However, TE Zach
Miller is listed as questionable while new-name TE Luke Willson stepped
up nicely against the Colts last week for a handful of receptions for 76
yards. Can the Hawks rebound from their loss and put the hurt on the underdog
Titans? They should be able to take care of business but they need to address
a few issues along the way that cost them the game last week.
Titans QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is not exactly surrounded by an all-star crew of offensive weapons including himself which is obviously part of the reason the Titans seem to fly under the radar but the Titans have beat some decent teams in Pitt (although the Steelers are down this season they are still a good win for teams) San Diego and the New York Jets. The only losses for the Titans have been to the Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefsboth are respectable teamsdespite Houstons crash the past two weeks. For the Titans to be effective in Seattle they will need to play really well and find a balance between the running and passing game. Both these teams are banged up with injuries but it is the Titans who are feeling it the most especially after losing QB Jake Locker to a hip injury in week 4; Fitzpatrick is charting the waters as best as he can but with two INTs last week he better be careful against the lethal Seattle secondary or should he? Seattles secondary gave up some huge plays last week to the Colts, one on a blown coverage that allowed T.Y. Hilton of the Colts to grab a 73 yard TD reception.
Seattles offense has got to be better even though they looked good earlier than in most games they still sputtered on third down conversions. The Hawks were 2 of 12 on third downs last week and five of those were in Colts territory where they had to settle for FGs. Seattle is good but their offense is not good enough to go deep into the playoffs at this point in the season. They need to get the offense going now so they can stop counting on their defense to bail them out every weekit is going to burnout the D eventually if not already. Another concern for Seattle is their use of timeouts and clock management. The Hawks were out of timeouts with nearly 9 minutes left in the game, a close game! Hopefully the staff gets this figured out too.

When the Titans take the field on Sunday in Sea-town they will be a certain underdog and will have to play extremely well to compete with a hungry-to-win-again Seahawk squad who will have the 12thMan on their side. Seattle is ranked No. 2 in the power rankings while the Titans are ranked No. 18. The Seahawks score more points per game; are more successful in the red zone; gain more total yards per game; have a better FG percentage and also allow fewer yards than the Titans. On paper, this game is all Seattle and it should be!.
The Titans are attempting to rebound after a tough loss to KC but teams dont just stroll into Seattle and get wins anymoreit just doesnt happen! Seattle gets back on track and shows the NFL doubters why they are a Super Bowl contender as their offense explodes at home in a route. Take the Hawks to cover the points and blow the Titans out of Elliot Bay.
WilsonsPick to Cover the Point Spread:Tennessee had a good thing going with Jake Locker at the helm. Fitzpatrick is brutal and belongs in arena football. I hate laying points more than anybody, but firmly believe that we’re looking at a 41-10 football game here.
