Week 15: at San Francisco 49ers
All TE vs SF
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Titans passing offense has been grotesquely bad for the past few weeks. Marcus Mariota had one of the worst games of his career last week as he barely completed 50% of his passes and threw two interceptions with no touchdowns. Mariota now has more interceptions than touchdowns on the season and has failed to pass for more than 200 yards in three straight games despite some very favorable matchups. The Titans receivers have of course struggled statistically as a result of Mariota's struggles. Delanie Walker has been one consistent factor as he is the most involved in the passing attack and continues to put up solid numbers for a tight end. Rishard Matthews made it back to the field last week after missing two games with a hamstring injury, but he was not a factor as Patrick Peterson covered him for most of the day. It is also worth noting that Mariota injured his knee when sliding at the end of a run in last week's game, but he did not leave the game and is looking like he should be good to go this Sunday.
The 49ers defense has played poorly against the pass for most of this season. After a one-off great outing against the dreadful Bears offense, the 49ers went back to their old ways as they allowed a backup quarterback (TJ Yates) to pass for two touchdowns and 175 yards against them last week. This multi-touchdown game allowed marks the ninth time the 49ers have given up multiple passing touchdowns in a game, bringing their tally up to 23 passing touchdowns allowed (T-7th most). Cornerback Dontae Johnson has been a weak spot for this secondary all season. In a tough matchup with DeAndre Hopkins last week, Johnson allowed nine catches on 10 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown. He was actually benched early last week, but if he plays this week, he should be up against Rishard Matthews. While Matthews had a tough game last week, he should be back to full health and capable of putting up big numbers in this matchup if Marcus Mariota can get right after his recent struggles.
