The Tennessee Titans host the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday in what Vegas is predicting will be a defense battle. It’s not a bad bet to assume the Titans offense will fail to score more than 20 points for the fourth consecutive week, even if the Eagles home/road splits show a leakier road team.
One reason for a potential low scoring output from the Titans is the shaky status of quarterback Marcus Mariota. With an elbow injury that is causing the bottom to fingers that he uses to grip the ball to go numb, the offense has gone full-on 1970 with their play-calling. Nobody runs more than the Titans and nobody has more time of possession than the Eagles. That’s a recipe for a grinder of a game, even if the Titans recipe doesn’t make any sense.

4.35ypp, 36% success rate.
On passing plays, 6.78ypp, 56% success rate.
I understand the QB situation. I don't buy the excuses.
There are other reasons the Titans offense can’t get off the ground, reasons The Kist & Solak Show detail in horrifying detail. From cowardly decision-making to personnel akin to square pegs in round holes and atrocious red zone production, the Eagles defense should have no issue slowing down the Titans attack, but who knows, maybe I jinxed it right there.
Regardless, come listen to us break it all down on the 16th edition of The Kist & Solak Show. We preview the Titans offense against the Eagles defense, update you on the injury report, and read your iTunes reviews that are always so awesome. Tomorrow we’ll flip it and preview the Eagles offense against the Titans defense.
