It really seemed like a lot of things just went wrong for the defense against the Rams.
The normally stout Tennessee defense was plagued by missed tackles, blown coverage and missed assignments. They also seemed to lack aggression; the only two sacks of the game came from Jurrell Casey.
Zac Stacy looked unstoppable, and as good a player as he is, there are no excuses for allowing him to have that big a game, especially with the enormous amount of early contact on him.
Even Zach Brown, normally one of the team's better tacklers, had an off day, missing several tackles against Stacy and giving him too much space.
The defensive backfield didn't far much better. Both Jason McCourty and Alterraun Verner gave receivers much too big a cushion, which made it easier early on for Kellen Clemens to complete the first seven passes he threw.
Luckily, this game shows an exception for the Titans more than the rule, but if they let it happen again, they should expect to lose a lot more games.
