Tennessee Titans Offense Primed for Breakout Year

Posted by Dan Marcus on 7/29/2013 7:55:33 PM

The Tennessee Titans have been a middle of the pack team the past few years as they have been getting Jake Locker ready to step in and become the franchise quarterback they hope he can be. After a year of sitting and learning followed by a half year under center, Locker is now ready to begin leading the Titans offense. Defense will be another story this year for the Titans however as it is a still improving unit that gave up the most points per game in the NFL last season.

Offense

The offense is what will lead the Titans to wins this season and if Locker is able to improve upon last season’s numbers the Titans could see an increase in wins. Locker did have a tough time last year in his first season as a starter, however, he had some good performances against top defenses last year which should give sports gamblers hope he will improve. Chris Johnson is still the featured back for the Titans and if he is able to duplicate last season’s performance, and ward off another down year, he will take plenty of pressure off Locker allowing the young quarterback to hopefully succeed. Besides Locker, the x-factor on offense for the Titans will be second year wide receiver Kendall Wright who figures to spend time in the slot this year, which is an important position for young quarterbacks to have a reliable player at.

Defense

Defense is what brought the Titans down last season giving up an average of 29 points per game, the highest in the league. Zach Brown was a nice addition to the defense in the second round of the 2012 draft and in his second year as a starter should be one of the most important players on defense. Sports books will expect the Titans to be one of the worst defenders of the pass again this year, but they shouldn’t be as bad as last season considering they added Baltimore safety Bernard Pollard who will team up with former first round pick Michael Griffin to round out the secondary.

Special Teams

The special teams unit for the Titans will be solid as they have Marc Mariani a former Pro Bowler returning punts and kickoffs once again. Mariani finished in the top ten in both punt and kickoff return yards last season and is a shifty runner who can easily break loose and bring one back for a touchdown. Rob Bironas is returning for his ninth season with the Titans and his powerful leg kicked a long field goal of 53 yards last season proving he is still one of the best long kickers in the league.

2013 Preview

The Titans aren’t ready to compete for a playoff spot just yet as their defense is simply too weak to contain the better teams in the league. The offense is what will carry the team this year and if Locker can have the type of season Titans coaches say he can then they may become a solid sportsbet because of the dynamic playmakers they have on offense. The Titans have a tough schedule this year, but if they can pull off some upset wins the future will look even brighter for this team.

2013 Prediction: 6-10, 3rd AFC South
