Packers at Titans: What to watch

Print | Front Page | Email this story

Mr. Rodgers neighborhood? Aaron Rodgers has called out his teammates for their play. You can bet they will want to take out their frustrations on the Titans, who were torched in San Diego in the air and on the ground. It will take a much better effort than that to corral the Packers offense.

Re-establish the run. The Titans could not get their run game in any sort of rhythm against the Chargers. They need a big game from DeMarco Murray. With Derrick Henry likely out, it will be Murray’s full show like it was early in the season.

Eliminate the turnovers. The Titans have shown they don’t win games when they turn the football over. Marcus Mariota’s dazzling plays have been a big plus for Tennessee, but the mistakes have often been fatal in at least three games this year. They can’t afford to give Rodgers extra chances or have empty possessions.

Get some turnovers. With only seven takeaways this year, the Titans are near the bottom of the league in that category. They need to take some pressure off the offense and give them a short field or even a defensive score to work with.

Matchups to watch

Aaron Rodgers vs. Dick LeBeau. LeBeau will have something up his sleeve for Rodgers, one of the league’s top stars. Even though he and the Packers have struggled at times this season, they are still a formidable foe.

Da’Norris Searcy vs. Jared Cook. Cook, a former Titans draft pick in 2009, is now with the Packers, and given how much trouble the Titans have had over the years covering tight ends, he could be a matchup problem on Sunday.

Marcus Mariota vs. Ha Ha Clinton Dix. Clinton Dix picked off Andrew Luck twice last Sunday, and no doubt he would like to continue that streak, given Mariota has had issues with interceptions at critical times this year.
