1. Jake Locker to struggle earlyLets face it, Locker isn't what you call "Top-Notch" and facing a top pass defense, and having to rely on the run against a Bengals defense? Doesn't spell out impressive game to me. I believe Locker will go 4-13, 31 yards, 1 INT before sitting the rest of the game.2. Chris Johnson to break a big oneChris Johnson is a top 3 runningback in my opinion, and the Bengals have a top rush defense. That being said, I think CJ2K will break another big one, but not the way you're thinking. Johnson will have a 42 yard screen pass from backup QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, to set up a Shonn Greene Touchdown run. Johnson will leave the game with 8 carries-25 yards-0 TDs, 2 Rec-49 yards-0 TDs.3. Tyler Eifert makes a name for himselfEifert barely made any impact against the Falcons, but expect him to make some big plays against a weak Titans secondary, and linebackers who can't cover. Eifert and Andy Dalton are poised to have a good game, expect Eifert's stats to look like 5 Rec-67 yards, Including a 34 yard touchdown from Dalton.4. Dane Sanzenbacher strikes againSanzenbacher had a nice game last week against an average 3rd string defense and special teams in Atlanta. Now, they go up against a absolutely terrible core backup defense and special teams of the Titans. Will he have a return touchdown? Probably not, but I see him coming out of this game, basically guaranteed with a roster spot.5. Turnovers kill TennesseeI already had Locker throwing an INT, but the Bengals don't have a bad set of backups by any means on defense. I believe the Titans will turn the ball over 5 times, 3 Picks, 2 Fumbles, and lose this one big. Don't expect a close one here ladies and gentleman.Final Score- 38-10
