BEFORE THE BYE
Prior to the Titans’ off week, they hosted the San Francisco 49ers at LP Field and fell by a final score of 31-17.
The 49ers got off to a fast start and scored the game’s first 24 points before the Titans scored 17 in the final quarter. Colin Kaepernick completed 12 of his first 14 attempts and rushed for 68 yards and a score in the game. The 49ers converted eight of their initial 10 third-down attempts, helping to keep the Titans to a season-low time of possession (24:14).
Meanwhile, Titans quarterback
Locker’s 97.1 season passer rating ranks fourth in the AFC and ninth in the NFL.
Unlike the rested Titans, the Rams have a short week of preparation for the game following their 14-9 loss at home to Seattle on Monday Night Football. Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes to Golden Tate, and the Seahawks made a dramatic goal-line stand in the final minute to hold on for the five-point victory. Backup quarterback Kellen Clemens marched the Rams to the Seattle 1, but Daryl Richardson was stuffed on third down and Clemens threw incomplete on fourth down as time expired.
Through the season’s first seven weeks, the Rams built an identical 3-4 mark to the Titans. They are now at the midway point in their second campaign under head coach Jeff Fisher, who took over in St. Louis in 2012 after leading the Titans for more than 16 seasons. However, they will be forced to navigate the remainder of 2013 without starting quarterback Sam Bradford, who on Oct. 23 was placed on injured reserve with a knee injury.
Fisher joined the Oilers as defensive coordinator in 1994. He was promoted to head coach for the final six games of that season and stayed in the role through the 2010 campaign. During that time, he guided the Titans to six playoff appearances, three division titles, two AFC championship games, and one Super Bowl appearance. His record with the team, including playoffs, was 147-126.
