-The Rams play there home games inside a dome stadium in St. Louis. The game will be televised LIVE at 1:00PM (ET) Sunday on CBS.
-The Titans “O” must be aggressive to open up the game against the Rams. The Rams rank 23rd in the league in rushing defense, and the TItans must rely on RB Chris Johnson early in the game to produce much needed yardage.
-QB Jake Locker will be much healthier with a bye week after sustaining a week 5 shoulder injury, look for Locker to be much improved after a shaky performance against the 49ers.
-The Titans must get points on the board. Field goals will not win the game, touchdowns will. The Titans struggled to score last week and will look to improve through a struggled Rams defense.
-ATTACK THE QB EARLY: This will be Kellen Clemens second start of the season. He is young and does not have much experience in big games. The defense needs to get on him early and disrupt is rhythm very early.
-MAN-TO-MAN: The defense needs to run a solid man-to-man defense that will not open any small gaps for Clemens and his offense. Make him throw the ball through crowded defenders, causing for possible interceptions early.
-WIN THE TURNOVER RATIO: The Titans “D” needs to commit turnovers against the Rams, and if the TItans win the turnover ratio, the Titans WILL win the game.
QUOTE OF THE DAY:
“Basically he’s been our leader all year. Jake (Locker) knows the right thing to do, the right person to throw the ball to, and those types of things. Anytime you get your leader, yourstarting quarterback back, is always a boost” -RB Chris Johnson
Indianapolis Colts: 5-2 (.714)
TENNESSEE TITANS: 3-4 (.429)
Houston Texas: 2-5 (.286)
Jacksonville Jaguars 0-8 (.000)
The Titans will strive through a much needed bye week. Look for the Titans offense to attack early on the Rams and overcome the offense struggles in week 6. The score will be 24-13 TITANS. The Titans will score early and the defense will disrupt Clemens attack leading the Titans to back to .500 and 4-4 in the AFC South.
