The Tennessee Titans (1-3) arrive home for the first time in two weeks on Sunday, October 5 against the Cleveland Browns (1-2). Kickoff is scheduled for noon CDT at LP Field.
So far the Titans’ season has been fairly disappointing after a solid Week 1 win. Since then, Tennessee has been blown out 100-34 as the offense has barely hung on. Last week on the road against the Indianapolis Colts, Andrew Luck threw for a season-high 393 yards going 29-of-41 from the air and four touchdowns to a 41-17 blowout that Tennessee lost in the first half. Backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was decent, going 12-of-23 completions for 177 yards and one touchdown but turnovers and poor overall play left a stinker. The Colts riled up 498 total yards, 105 rushing and had possession of the ball for 41 minutes. Consider what the Titans did: 261 total yards, 85 rushing and just 17 minutes with the ball.
The Browns come into Week 5 off a bye but as the Titans they only have one win in their column to show off so far. They suffered stuff defeats by the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens, but won at home in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints. It was in large part by the arm of their quarterback Brian Hoyer who has yet to throw an interception so far this season with his three touchdown passes.
Rumors have been building that Sunday’s game at Tennessee might see the first appearance of Johnny Manizel in his first professional game. It’ll also be worth watching if Jake Locker will indeed suit up, as the Titans have made it known he will play after injuring his right wrist, and sitting out in Indianapolis.
Sunday’s game will be televised regionally on CBS, including Nashville affiliate WTVF NewsChannel 5. On the radio, tune into The Titans Radio Network 104.5 The Zone.
