New Orleans Saints
In a game that was much closer than I anticipated but still had the same result, the Tennessee Titans held the New Orleans Saints' offense in check early but failed to take advantage of their opportunities early and late and fell 22-17.It looked like the Saints might roll like I thought they would, as methodically moved down the field before stalling out inside the 10 for a field goal, then Darren Sproles took a punt 82 yards to the end zone after the Titans went four-and-out. Sproles' punt would be negated by a holding call, though, as we entered the flagfest portion of the game. There would be fourteen more penalties between the two teams before halftime and the Titans first a first-and-thirty-five their next possession.The big news that drive was Matt Hasselbeck would leave the game with what was later identified as a left calf injury sustained without contact and Jake Locker would come in. Locker had a nice touch pass to Craig Stevens to set up a field goal to tie the ga...

So, how'd Jake Locker play against the Saints? There's been a great deal of optimism around Titans' fandom the past couple of days about Locker's work in his relief appearance on Sunday, so I thought I'd do a play-by-play breakdown of how he fared.The normal caveats apply: I'm doing this off TV footage, not all-22 film, and without exact knowledge of what...
NASHVILLE -- Jake Locker knows he should have thrown the ball away or given a teammate a chance to make a play. Instead, the rookie wound up sacked on the final play with the ball in his hand. Saints 22, Titans 17
QB: Jake Locker, Titans
The rookie out of Washington made an appearance in this stock column three weeks ago after engineering a near-comeback win over the Falcons in Atlanta, but was unfortunately put on the back burner after the team decided to stick with the veteran Matt Hasselbeck under center. Don't envision that scenario to manifest itself again, as Locker...
After an explosive Week 14, here are three unheralded medal-earners (started in less than 20-percent of Y! leagues) projected to finish in fourth place who ended up setting the fantasy pace:
Jake Locker, Ten, QB
Y! Percent Started: 0-percent
After Matt Hasselbeck exited stage left with calf injury in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to New Orleans, the rookie entered the...

Cold, Hard Football Facts Titans beat writer
So… so… close. Tennessee put up a tremendous fight and very nearly pulled out the win, but ultimately New Orleans was just a bit too much for the AFC South club to handle. It was a rough day for the Titans – starting QB Matt Hasselbeck and WR Nate Washington left the field with injuries – but...
The Titans played hard yesterday, but just not good enough to beat the Saints. Matt Hasselbeck started at QB for the Titans yesterday and he completed 5 of 7 passes for 44 yards before leaving the game with a calf injury. Rookie Jake Locker finished up the game and he was excellent for the most part. He completed 13 of 29 passes for 282 yards with 1 TD pass and 0 INTs. He...
So it’s pretty funny how two longtime Seattleites were chawin’ at the bitz over two non Home team NFL Franchises… As Mi Madre is a longtime New Orleans Saints Fan - and ‘Dat’s PRE Superbowl Y’all! While you’re humble scribe for reasons best left unexplained… Hmm? Was it their uniform colours? Nah Ain’t ‘Dat; Oh Never Mind! Has been on the Tennessee Titans Bandwagon...
Drew Brees showed Titans rookie quarterback Jake Locker how to close out a win. The New Orleans veteran threw two touchdown passes to Marques Colston in the fourth quarter to lead the Saints to their fifth straight victory with a 22-17 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. On third-and-6, Brees threw 35 yards to a wide-open Marques Colston, who jumped into the air just in front...
