To beat Fitzpatrick you just need to force him to throw to the middle of the field. The guy can hit everything along the sidelines and was doing so in Buffalo before other teams discovered this. No reason we can't do the same.

I like the Titans. They are about where I figure they would be but have been in some games to the end (like vs Colts). I would not take them lightly but at home, this game should go our way.

The scouting report on Flacco last year showed that he was completely incapable of throwing deep unless it was to the right side, which he did very well. He never even looks to his left on the deep routes. The announcers even talked about it during the game, like it was common knowledge. Certainly wasn't to us, apparently.

Fitz is pretty bad on the road, but he's had to play some tough teams on the road.

3 TD's on 5 ints, 61% completion for a meager 6.4 YPP.

He's actually a very good third down quarterback this year: 38 of 63 for 601 yards, 60% completion 9.53 YPP 6 TD's against 1 int 117.2 rating....but he's taken 7 sacks. So he'll hang around to beat you, but sometimes wait too long and get hit or take a sack.

He's terrible on first down for some reason - 1 TD to 6 ints, 6.5 YPP, 51 QB rating.

He's actually coming off one of his worst games of the season. Prior to the Colts game he had two games of a QB rating of 110+.

The Titans haven't beat a team with a winning record since 2011. It was the Texans the final game of the season when they were resting their starters - thought it was in Reliant.

What I have got out of this thread is that the Titans are just a better version of the Chiefs.

Can't argue that but I will point out that the Ravens were still beating teams despite this "handicap." Fitz was no longer beating teams when this trait was discovered.

They are similar, but Fitzpatrick is not as good as Smith.

Unless Broncos make 2-3 big mistakes I think they have way too much talent at the skill spots for Titans to handle.

Chris Johnson I thought was only crappy due to blocking but i watched him last week fairly close and he just seems to not explode once into space like he used to. Now that i say that he prob goes long on us but whatever.

the Titans are a much crappier version of the Chiefs.

I say the Broncos will drop 40+ on them.
