Three Questions About the Titans as Training Camp Gets Closer

Following a season in which the Titans went 9-7 and missed the postseason by just a game, the team is set to get back to the NFL’s second season and there’s plenty of excitement as 2019 approaches.

Now that the calendar has turned to July, the start of training camp is closing in and things are ramping up for the franchise to get ready for 2019.

Today we take a quick look at three questions about this team as they get set to embark on what they hope will be a better season that could end with a playoff birth.

1. Get More Out of the Offense

Last season the Titans were 27th in the league in scoring points at 19.4 per game, which if this team is going to make the playoffs, they’ve got to be better in that area.

For a large part of the season the club just didn’t that have second gear to the offense, and that starts in camp with new OC Arthur Smith making sure that the players on the team know the game plan.

That also goes along with QB Marcus Mariota knowing his role with the offense, and knowing what is expected of him and how he fits in the puzzle of this team making more big plays.

2. Can the Defense Stay the Course?

The Titans defense didn’t get the credit they deserved for how well they played, as they were 3rd in the league in points allowed, and 8th in yards allowed.

While the offense likely still has to find itself with new OC Arthur Smith, the defense will have to carry the load early in camp and possibly early in the season to make sure they stay competitive.

The defensive line is the strength of this club, led by Jurrell Casey who led the team with seven sacks a season ago. There’s a couple players that the team needs to step up to make this defense even better in 2019.

3. Dominate the Division

The AFC South was the Titans for the taking in the final game of 2018, but a final game 33-17 loss to the Colts ended any chances of the postseason.

They went 3-3 in the AFC South, and while that may be .500, that’s not good enough if they are going to make a big impact overall in the league.

The Texans, Jags and Colts are all looking to be even better just like the Titans, but early in the year Tennessee has to come out and throw the first punch in the division, winning in weeks two and three against the Colts and Jags to set the tone for the season.
