The Seahawks play the Tennessee Titans in week two. Seattle is coming off a pretty solid victory over the Colts in week one while the Titans were dominated by the Cardinals. This does not mean the same thing will happen in week two.
The NFL season is week by week, of course, and every week is different. Tennessee does have a lot of talent on offense and Seattle needs to be just as good on defense as it was in week one but likely against a better offensive team.
To get a better handle on the Titans, I asked five questions to Titan Sized‘s Geoffrey Knox. Here were his answers.
Seahawks versus Titans: Five questions about Seattle’s week two opponent
Takeaways from the first Titans game
12th Man Rising: The Titans had a rough start to the season (though Seahawks fans do not expect this to continue into week two). What were some of your biggest takeaways from the first game of the year?
Geoffrey Knox: I have two theories actually. The first boils down to the fact that, and you can probably agree with this, even though the Arizona Cardinals don’t get the national attention that the Los Angeles Rams or Seattle Seahawks get, they’re a very talented team.
No one should be surprised by the fact that they won, but I would honestly state that, as many were, I was shocked by the margin of victory.
Here’s another component that I think people ignore. Continuity means a lot in this game. Sure, the Titans are loaded on offense and on defense, but they have new coordinators. The Cards have been hearing Kliff Kingsbury’s voice for a while now.
Just think about what the OC, Todd Downing, is dealing with. He’s a new guy dealing with the pressure of keeping a train going and adding a future Hall of Famer while trying to keep him happy.
It’s a lot to juggle, but this team will be fine. Remember that we haven’t seen these guys on the same practice field at the same time.
