From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): When Jake Locker was struggling, Walker was his shelter. Walker dominated against the Cowboys, including a 60+ yard catch and run score that highlighted his tackle-breaking ability and his rare speed.

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 (4 / 3 / 37 / 1 rec)

Walker didn't see his first target of the season until the second quarter. He made a contested catch for a first down over the middle of the field. On the same drive, Walker made a nice catch at full extension in the back of the end zone for a touchdown. Walker couldn't make a difficult reception close to the goalline late in the third quarter, but he rebounded early during the following drive with a catch against tight coverage on a slant route for a first down.

2014 Week 2 vs DAL (14 / 10 / 142 / 1 rec)

As Jake Locker struggled, he looked to Delanie Walker to help carry him through the game. Walker had a couple of impressive plays in the first half with good receptions, but most of his production came in the second half when Locker and the offense looked a lot better. He should have had at least one more reception as Locker missed him wide open on a crossing route for his interception, but he also had a fumble that was fortunately recovered by Justi Hunter after catching a pass in the flat. Walker was able to cosistently get open on short and intermediate routes and capped his day off with a very impressive 61 yard touchdown run that saw him break one tackle and outrun the defense to the end zone.

Titans | Delanie Walker sets career high (Sun Sep 14, 09:11 PM) - Tennessee Titans TE Delanie Walker had 10 catches for a career-high 142 yards in the Week 2 game against the Dallas Cowboys, including a 61-yard touchdown.

Our View: Everyone expected a big week for all of the key Titans skill players against a Cowboys defense that put up little resistance to the 49ers in Week 1. Only Walker obliged, showing his jets on a long catch and run touchdown that included a broken tackle. The Bengals defense will be a lot tougher next week, but Walker is hot and has scored in two straight weeks.
