Keys to the Titans game

Recommended Posts

What does everyone think are the keys for a win.

 

Limit screen plays by running backs 

They have their TE back

Limit AJ Brown 

Adam Humpfries in the slot could kill us

 

Get pressure on Mariota

Not only is lewan out but they might be without their right guard.

 

This will be a bigger test for Brissett I think. Their defense I think is better then the chargers. Plus half the fans won’t be colt fans like Sunday.

DEFENSE: Stop the run.

Contain the screen game (Henry is dangerous but Dion Lewis-style backs have been threats to the Colts more over the years).

Play physical.

 

OFFENSE: Go after their cornerbacks

Play action.

Punish their blitzing.

 

It'll be a big test but the don't underestimate what he did versus the Chargers...that was a GOOD defense and he played excellently. The Titans will offer a different challenge with probably a lot more blitzing...Luck was a master at handling Tennessee's blitzing, time to see whether Jacoby can punish them too....if he can handle their blitzing, it should be another big Colts win. If he can't, well....brace yourself for a slugfest.

Hopefully with Cain getting more snaps beside TY that will add some speed and open things up more. I hope we see more of Campbell.

Stop the run. Keep Mariota in the pocket and make him pass. Not worried about AJ Brown, or any of their receivers really.  Walker is Mariota’s go to guy. Screens should be a focal point this week.

 

I don’t feel like the Titans D is better than the Chargers. Chargers definitely have better pass rushers. I think our line can win their battles, run blocking and pass blocking, all day. 

 

Establish the run and short passes on O, but take some shots down the field. Control the tempo.

 

The Browns gave that game away. Mayfield was gifting them the ball.

Open the play book and show some creativity. 

Dont run Mack into the ground by game two.

 

Thats about it. Defense is ok. Not much I would change there. They

will get better as the season goes along.

The play book was pretty open in the first game. The offense did what it had to do and was enough to win the game.

 

The defense is okay? If they play like they did against the Chargers, you can be rest assured that the Colts will get blown out. Book it.

 

Your assessment of the team is a bit off.

AJ Brown had some freaking moves last week. Gotta take him away. 

 

Their defense has the ability to pop JB in the mouth.

Henry must be stopped.  Campbell and cain need to get involved on offense. Vinatieri  has to make his kicks. If we do those three things we should win.

We'll probably run the ball quite a bit in this one as well..  Difference is I think they include Wilkins. They played Wilkins in both Titans games last year.  I don't think Nyheim played all that much against them.  I think JB gets going with the play action and cuts them deep a couple times.   Oh I just noticed Jonathan Williams just started back practicing this week.  I think either he or Wilkins will get the carries behind Mack.

 Totally agree with your post. To the bold there were several times Rivers was running around outside the pocket making plays and Mariotta is 100% more dangerous running loose.

Establish the run game.

 

Force the Titans to have to pass to win.

 

Improved special teams play

The titans were 4th in QB pressures from week 1. Mariota was sacked four times and had pressure 43% of the time. I think we have a better pass rush then cleveland. Take advantage of their bad oline.

My keys for winning this game include...

 

1) Having Doyle help chip on the right side helping out Braden Smith against Cameron Wake when he or Harold Landry lines up against him in obvious passing downs. Costanzo and Nelson can lock down the left side.

2) Stop Derrick Henry in the running game.

3) Eliminate screen plays.

4) Establish the run as a threat, so that Brissett doesn't have to completely carry the offense. 

5) Take care of the ball, and make Mariota uncomfortable. 

6) Don't hurt yourself with penalties or giving away points on special teams.

Did you notice the huge block Doyle had on one of Mack’s runs. I don’t know if it was the 64 yarder or another one. He is so important to this team.

I think we are going to see more of Ebron in the slot like last year with DF out. More WR work for Ebron.

1: Get to Mariota and make him throw on the back foot, keep him moving, and ideally, pick up a couple coverage sacks.  

2: Jacoby has to be efficient and accurate and take advantages of the opportunity given by the D

3: another good day at the office by the running backs.

I think we need to be trying strike and put up points as soon as possible. Stick with the run like we did in the game that got us in the playoffs last year, but also look to strike down the field. We need to get on top of these guys early. It's the best way to pull the Titans out of their focus of running the football and play action.  We need to come out early looking for chunk plays.  Same thing  we did with Andrew last year, strike early and force them to start passing.   What they want do is sit on the rock and ride Derrick Henry and hit passes off of what they do in the running game.  Can't focus on that too much if we take them out of it early.

I think our game plan will probably be similar to this one as I'm sitting here watching it:

 

 

 

 

Make em play out of their nickel defense on most drives to cut out all that blitzing.  Spread em out,  mix up the run and the pass out of shotgun.  Go back under center occasionaly on short yardage pick ups.

Very well could be. Try and get the big lead then ride Mack in the second half. If they get the ball first we must stop them like we did the chargers that first drive. They might expect us to come out running and maybe we do the opposite.

I'm almost certain we are going to run a similar game plan as last year.  If you get them in their nickel and dime defenses they really don't have any pass rushers that scare you outside of maybe Cameron Wake and I'm sure it won't hurt us too bad at times to go max protect and leave a tight end over there to help Braden Smith out with him.  They don't really have anybody else that's going to cause you major problems.  If they are in nickel and dime most likely they are going to have to blitz DBs which leaves holes in the defense for us to exploit with screens, slants, crossing routes,  running back passes and what not.  I think last years game plan with a few wrinkles would work fine.

This has pretty much been our formula against Tenn on offense:

 

No Huddle 1 back or Complete Spread with no back.  Most of the time it's one back and we've run and passed/zone read play pass a lot from that look. When we go under center its almost always a run or a play pass. 

 

 These are the approaches I've seen us incorporate to stymie Tenn from blitzing us into kingdom come.  Same thing I think will be effective for JB even this year. We stay with the same formula and I think JB gets it done against these boys.

 

I almost never saw us just line up under center and hike the ball 3 5 or 7 step drop. It always had a play pass element to it to slow the rush down and suck the linebackers up.

I think we will see Mack, Wilkins, and Hines in this game just like the other 2 contests.   I think Deon Cain should and will be pretty active in this game.  Good game to get Paris Campbell going as well.

Looking forward to seeing those 3 on the field at the same time. Funch will be missed no doubt about it, but getting the youngins goin at a high level will be scary for defenses. No more double teams for TY. If we can make Mariota try to beat us, I like our chances. Taking down Henry all afternoon will be a challenge though.

First or last place in the division is on the line.  its early but cant go down 2.5 games to the team with the easiest schedule 

 

the line backers need to bounce back, they were bad in LA.  was glad to see Mack get more carries, but 25 is a lot.

Cover/defend RBs and TEs well, use our WRs and TEs well. Ebron is going to play a key role along with our #2 wideout.

Good game planning,  without Andrew our head coach is probably our best asset.  Another strong O line performance.  Much sharper D, including continued QB pressure and solid tackling over big play attempts.  Stop the run and extensions there of.  Henry might kill us, but if they're going to beat us I say make Marcus do it.  And last weeks flop "Weekend at Vinny's" cant get a sequel or, unfortunately, the week 3 feature might be "Weekend at Vinny's III:  Vinny's Day Off....."

The special teams need to be on point and the defense has to stop the run/screen game.

 

Mariota doesnt have the weapons or the line Jacoby has and I think Brissett is better than him anyways.

 

Make Mariota beat you, he cant do it.

The key to the Colts winning this game is for none of them to be as nervous as I am just thinking about it...

Yes we have become very accustomed to beating the Titans... but they are coming off of the only win in our division in week 1, plus it will be their home game opener with a hype crowd. We are coming off of a stinging loss.  I do not doubt what we are capable of but I am just hoping the ENTIRE TEAM *hint hint Vinny* will play top-notch. This is a statement game for sure!

    • It was 4th down. If we are talking about the pass that was batted back to JB and then he tossed it to Doyle. 
    • Looking at Ballards term as GM it most certainly hasn’t been easy,   his first year coming in has to keep a HC he didn’t want and had to deal with Lucks injury.    then in The second year but his first full offseason. He loses his first selection for  head coach and has to find a new one late in the process.    Now in his third season he loses his franchise QB right before the season starts and has 4 WRs on IR (Funchess, Rogers, Campbell, Fountain)   Dude hasn’t caught a break lol
    • LOL.... You beat me to it!!
    • If we had a good QB, we are likely in the playoffs already. It is not the lnjuries that have derailed us. 
    • Never called him great... just saying he's played well enough for us to win just about every week.  While his time to throw is high, he's the 26th least sacked QB in the league.  I know he's missed a few reads throughout the season, but he's not turning the ball over or taking many sacks.  I think it's worth keeping in mind that after Campbell went to IR,  we currently have three TEs who were all undrafted free agents in the past, and one healthy WR who was drafted (in the 3rd round by AZ in 2017, Chad Williams), the rest are UDFAs until TY gets healthy.  He's not really surrounded with much talent to get the ball to when he's not handing it off.
