TENNESSEE TITANS

Lucky won’t cut it vs. Pittsburgh, Buffalo

Is it better to be lucky than good? It certainly seems to be working for the Tennessee Titans after three games.

Titans must fortify porous defense against run

First down: Figure out how to stop the run. Dalvin Cook ran wild for 181 yards last week. That’s after James Robinson of Jacksonville ran for more than 100 yards the week before. That has to be figured out by Mike Vrabel, who is the head coach and de facto defensive coordinator this season. Some of it comes from missed tackles. Some is bad gap fits and getting out of position. But whatever is wrong, it cannot continue to happen.
