RTC: Run-game failures demoralizing

Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans ...

The overall run-game failures and the four misses from the 1-yard line demoralized the Titans and left them playing catch-up, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

How soon can Jake Locker be back? David Climer of The Tennessean saw quite a contrast from Locker to backup Ryan Fitzpatrick. Will he be the guy we saw in the first, second and fourth quarters, or can the Titans get the guy who played well in the third?

The Titans are running out of reasons why they can’t run the football, says John Glennon.

The streak with no turnovers ended in a hurry, and the Titans gave it to the Chiefs three times in Sunday’s loss, say Glennon and Wyatt.

Moise Fokou’s sideline hit on Alex Smith resulted in a costly penalty and created a lot of questions about what a defender should do in such a situation, says Glennon.

Fitzpatrick wasn’t unlike Locker when it came to running around, says David Boclair of Nashville Post.
