Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE
Overall Grade: C+
Receivers were either running the wrong routes or were simply out of sync with Hasselbeck after being accustomed to Jake Locker. Kenny Britt showed that his legs are continuously getting healthier, but his hands have fallen off. He struggled with catching the ball all night. The offensive line was solid for the most part. They opened up lanes for Chris Johnson and usually gave Hasselbeck time to throw the ball.
Fourth Quarter Grade: B-
The execution has been there, but some errant passes by Hasselbeck and some more poor pass-blocking have put a limit on the unit's success. Kendall Wright continues to be the one player on offense that consistently performs and helps keep the offense's drives alive. Jared Cook showed up with a clutch reception on 3rd-and-5 to put the team in field goal range.
Third Quarter Grade: C
The offensive line is struggling to keep Hasselbeck clean. The unit has allowed three sacks, but Hasselbeck's been under duress often. Chris Johnson has been effective tonight rushing for 58 yards on 12 carries along with three catches for 18 yards. The offense has started moving the ball, but not well enough.
Second Quarter Grade: D+
The Titans offense has stalled out completely after picking up a touchdown on a two-play one-yard drive. Tennessee has gone a total of 10 yards on three drives in the quarter, before taking advantage of a late turnover to drive for another field goal. There will need to be some adjustments made at halftime to get the ball moving again.
First Quarter Grade: C+
The announcers have said it and I'm going to have to agree: Chris Johnson needed to and has been running north and south and is off to a good start in the game. Kendall Wright dropped a catchable ball on the first drive that would have been a touchdown, but for the most part the receivers have done a good job. The biggest concern now is whether the team's offensive line can open up lanes for CJ and keep Hasselbeck clean. On a side note Johnson has done a great job of protecting the quarterback on blitzes.
