Long a standout returner, Leon Washington was released in 2013 and looked to be on his way out before catching on with Tennessee where he ended up with the 4th best yards per kick return in the NFL. The combination of Leon Washington, Dexter McCluster, and Marc Mariani make Tennessee's special teams a deep and elite unit.

Week 3: at Cincinnati Bengals

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Shonn Greene got off to a solid star last week (5/40/0 rushing) but was marginalized as the game went along because the Titans were down 0-16 at the half. All told, Tennessee tried just 13/82/0 during the contest. Greene is the unchallenged starter as of middle September, followed up by Dexter McCluster (4/30/0 rushing with 1/9/0 receiving and Bishop Sankey (2/3/0 rushing last week). The Bengals ranked fifth in the NFL last season averaging just 96.5 rushing yards allowed per game, and they gave up a mere six rushing scores through 16 games played (third in the NFL in this category). On opening day, the Ravens managed to punch in a rushing score (Justin Forsett managed a 13-yard TD run) - all told, the Bengals allowed 20/91/1 rushing to the Ravens. Last week, Atlanta ran for 19/97/0 at Cincinnati - currently, the Bengals are 11th in the NFL averaging 95.5 rushing yards allowed per game, with one rushing score handed over to date. Greene has yet to score this year, and it isn't likely he does so against the ruthless Bengals.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs KC (2 / 23 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)

Leon Washington has surprisingly been active in the Titans' backfield. He is a third-down option along with Dexter McCluster who seemingly won't be trusted in a full-time role yet. Washington's snaps are likely coming at the expense of Bishop Sankey, so they may disappear once Sankey proves himself to the coaching staff. He is still a somewhat elusive player, but age has definitely limited his explosion.
