Titans' pass rush hasn't mattered

By Paul Kuharsky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Chargers look great. The Titans look lost and occasionally undisciplined defensively, and simply can’t hold up.

There has been some good pressure on Philip Rivers by the Titans’ front four.

The trouble is, when you run into an unflappable quarterback who doesn’t care who’s in his face, who’s able to make throws under fire, who can step up and around it, who zips it regardless of what’s going on around him and who gets up after a sack, that pressure doesn’t have the impact you need it to.

And it helps create a game like this, in which the Chargers are simply doing what they want on offense. It's 35-10 at the end of the third quarter, on the verge of 42 -10 with San Diego facing second-and-goal from the 1.
