    Titans Week 4 Report

    Entering the bye, the Titans are off to a 2-1 start thanks in part to two user victories against the Browns and Colts in weeks 2 and 3 respectively. No one knew what to expect from this young team but I think it's safe to assume no one imagined they would be 2-1 after 3 games in the season. The youth on both sides of the ball is evident in the many mental mistakes on both offense and defense. However, with the team currently tied for the division lead things could be much worse.

    The strength of the team appears to be on the defensive side of the ball and most importantly the linebacking core of Brian Orakpo, Derrick Morgan, Zach Brown and Avery Williamson. Although Williamson was lost for roughly 13 weeks in week 2 he had the look of a top tier MLB with 17 tackles in almost 2 games. In Williamson's place will be Wesley Woodyard who will step in as the WILB while Zach Brown shifts over to the strongside.

    Offensively, there is still much work to be done if the Titans want to continue winning games. Mariota has looked every part of the rookie through 3 games with erratic accuracy and 6 turnovers. The bright spot on offense has been fellow rookie Dorial Green-Beckham who leads the team with 14 receptions and 203 yards. If Mariota can get in sync with the other receivers the passing game can turn into a strength going forward.
