The Tennessee Titans starting QB, Jake Locker, will be starting in today’s game vs the 49ers.
The 3-2 Tennessee Titans will travel to Seattle to face the 4-1 Seahawks in a game pitting teams ranked second and third in turnover differential against each other. Seattle Seahawks tickets for this matchup are averaging $286, with a get-in price of $128. This game’s average ticket is 4% below the average Seahawks home game and has dropped 4% in the last week.
No one would mistake Russell Wilson and Ryan Fitzpatrick for each other on the field, but the two played very similarly last week. Wilson threw for 210 yards and also ran for 102 yards on 13 attempts against the Colts. Fitzpatrick threw for 247 yards and rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown on six attempts. Both defenses have been very good against the pass so far this season, which could make points very hard to come by in this game. Aside from the secondaries, the defensive lines on each team could make things difficult for the quarterbacks. Bruce Irvin and Chris Clemons both recorded sacks for the Seahawks against the Colts and defensive tackle Jurrell Casey already has as many sacks, three, through five games for the Titans as he did last season in 16 games. Seattle has one of the best home field advantages in football and it shows through ticket prices in regards to Titans away games. Tickets for this game are 99% percent above the $144 average price of Tennessee Titans tickets away from LP Field this season.

The Tennessee Titans are looking to crash the Jets when they come back to Nashville.
The New York Jets came to Nashville in their 2012 playoff campaign last year. A win for the Jets would have advanced them to the playoffs, but a Titan win would keep them out of the playoffs. The Titans did win this game on Monday Night Football on ESPN.

Tennessee beat Pittsburgh at their own game, winning the battle of the trenches and playing with more physicality. The Titans combined for 112 yards on a whopping 42 rushing attempts while the Steelers managed just 32 yards on 15 carries.
Jerry Gray’s Titans defense sacked Ben Roethlisberger five times, prevented his offense from generating a first down in the third quarter and held the Steelers to their fewest single-game points since late in the 2011 season. Zach Brown led the way for the Tiants with two sacks and eight tackles
Next week Houston!
The Titans hope to tap into a new run threat. It is not the running backs.
Look at Locker.
Several athletic quarterbacks have made teams like Carolina, Washington and Seattle very difficult to defend.
The Titans loved Locker for both his arm and his legs coming out as the No. 8 pick overall in 2011. He got hurt in the season opener a year ago and ran only 41 times for 291 yards in 2012. Still, he averaged 7.1 yards per carry when he took off.
“He hasn’t really had time to show what he can really do, and I feel like this year he will,” Chris Johnson said of Locker.
“I’m really impressed by his mobility, his accuracy on the move that he has displayed in the preseason,” Tomlin said of Locker. “We have some concerns about containing him. Obviously, when you watch those plays both in the preseason and late last year, his mobility and his escapability is a part of that they do both by design and by ad lib. That is something you have to be concerned about if you are around defense.”
The Titans didn’t show much this preseason with Locker. He ran only seven times for 35 yards.
No one should expect for the Titans to insert running plays for Locker. In fact, the Titans coaches hope he does not have to run often.
Locker will make his 12th start for the Titans. He said he’s always looking for opportunities to run, especially if his receivers are covered down field. What to look for? At least run for 3 or 4 yards because his ability to scramble is an asset.
“You’ve got to use it when you have the opportunity to,” Locker said.
