From the upgrade/downgrade report (Tue Nov 18): Wright is looking more dynamic with Zach Mettenberger at QB, and the Week 12 game at Philadelphia should give him the chance to put up bigger numbers. He's a great one week flex play and receiver to possibly ride if he gets against a very weak schedule vs. the pass down the stretch.

Week 12: at Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Zach Mettenberger posted a nice 15/24 for 263 yards passing, two TDs with zero interceptions effort vs. Pittsburgh last week, and took a 17-10 lead into the locker room at half-time. Though the Steelers eventually prevailed, Tennessee had a positive outing from their young signal caller. Nate Washington got loose for an 80-yard bomb during the game (two targets for 1/80/1), while Kendall Wright (eight targets for 4/70/0 receiving) and Justin Hunter (four for 2/48/0) kept the chains moving last week - Chase Coffman handled the other TD for Mettenberger with four targets for 3/32/1 receiving. The Eagles pass D was beat up in Green Bay last week, allowing 24/38 for 365 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown (one sack taken for -2 yards by Aaron Rodgers) - two games ago, Carolina's Cam Newton and company threw down for 25/40 for 215 net yards passing, two TDs and three interceptions thrown, with nine sacks taken for -91 yards during the loss to Philadelphia. Obviously, protecting your passer is a key when Philadelphia is across the line of scrimmage (unfortunately for Mettenberger, the Titans have given up 25 sacks this year, tied for 25th in the NFL). Look for the Eagles to bring the pass rush a lot in this game to try and rattle the young Tennessee quarterback. To date the Eagless are second in the NFL with 33 sacks generated, though they have only seven interceptions this year (22nd in the NFL). Through 10 games the Eagles average 263 net passing yards allowed per game (28th in the NFL) with 22 pass scores given up. If Mettenberger can keep his poise under pressure, he should throw for some decent numbers against this vulnerable secondary. He'll have to dodge some pass rushers to do well.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs BAL (7 / 4 / 53 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Wright's first catch of the game should have come on the first drive, but when he was open on an out route Mettenberger threw the ball into the ground. His first reception came to start the second drive, as he caught a comeback route down the sideline for a first down. On Second-and-16 in the second quarter, Wright caught a short curl route for six yards. Wright was seemingly open on a regular basis, but his quarterback couldn't find him. His next reception came late in the fourth quarter in the flat when he turned the ball upfield for 10 yards. Two plays later, Wright was wide open over the middle of the field for a first down reception as the Ravens slacked their coverage.

2014 Week 11 vs PIT (8 / 4 / 70 / 0 rec)

Wright caught his first target of the game, a target that came early in the first quarter. He ran an out route before turning back infield to extend his reception down the field. When he turned infield, he forced the defensive back to grab his facemask for the additional yardage. Mettenberger went back to Wright two plays later deep down the sideline for a first down and a big gain. Early in the second quarter, Wright caught a screen pass and took the offense down to the goal line with excellent acceleration in space. Wright dropped a third down pass in the third quarter that was thrown behind him on a shallow cross. He made up for it to start the next drive in the fourth quarter with a first down reception by the sideline.
