What’s wrong with Titans' offense? NFL evaluators weigh in

Three weeks into the NFL season, the question around the Tennessee Titans has shifted from “Will Marcus Mariota earn a contract extension?” to “Will he and the offense ever find any sort of rhythm in the passing game?”

Titans have to get Mariota, run game going in Atlanta

Week 4 predictions

Falcons 27, Titans 17: The Titans have won when an underdog and lost as a favorite thus far in all three games this year. Unless the defense steps up and forces a couple of turnovers, or Derrick Henry runs like he did in some of the SEC Championship Games he played in in Atlanta, it could be another tough day for the Titans.
