Week 3: at Cincinnati Bengals

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Jake Locker followed up his solid Week 1 game with a disaster against the Cowboys' powder-puff D, eventually putting up 18/34 for 234 yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown (with two sacks taken for -2 yards). Delanie Walker was dumped off to throughout the game (14 targets for 10/142/1 receiving), while the wide receivers had short-shrift (five targets for 3/31/0 receiving for Kendall Wright; six targets for 2/26/0 for Justin Hunter). Eventually the Titans lost 10-26. The Bengals did allow a monster 80-yard TD pass to Joe Flacco and Steve Smith Sr. during Week 1, but aside from that it took Flacco 62 attempts to put up 35/62 for 345 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with three sacks taken for -16 yards. During Week 2, Matt Ryan threw 24/44 for 212 net yards passing, one TD and three interceptions at Cincinnati. Cincinnati ranked fifth in the NFL averaging 209 net passing yards allowed per game, last season, with 20 interceptions (tied for fifth in the NFL) and 43 sacks (tenth in the league) generated. This season they are currently 26th in the NFL averaging 270.5 net passing yards allowed per game, but they have double the number of interceptions (four) as pass TDs allowed (two). Locker threw twice as many interceptions as TDs last week; the Bengals' D has twice as many interceptions generated this year as TDs allowed - this looks like a bad week to depend on the Titan's signal caller.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs KC (2 / 2 / 24 / 0 rec)

Thompson is very much a backup tight end. He had his first target and reception underneath in the third quarter. Thompson's second target and reception came in the fourth quarter, as he adjusted well to an off target pass over the middle of the field.

2014 Week 2 vs DAL (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Thompson saw just one target. That target came at the start of the second quarter when he was open on a deep out route, but Jake Locker badly overthrew him.
