Michael Griffin (33) makes a hit in the Saints game last season
Tennessee's secondary has been taken advantage of multiple times this season, most notably by the Falcons' Matt Ryan, the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger and the Texans' Matt Schaub; all resulting in losses.
However, Drew Brees and the Saints have been unpredictable away from home. All three of their losses have occurred on the road and two of them are to under-.500 teams (at Tampa, at St. Louis).
Brees threw a total of five interceptions in the losses to the Bucs and Rams, raising questions of his composure recently on the road. Two out of the past three road games have resulted in defeats, and their one win was given to them in overtime at Atlanta.
Coverage down the field is a crucial key for the Titans to succeed in this game. I'm talking to you, Cortland Finnegan and Alterraun Verner.
Brees does a great job of spreading the ball across the field to multiple recipients, shaking up opponents' defensive plans of attack.
By applying tight coverage on Saints receivers Robert Meachem, Marques Colston and Lance Moore, the Titans defensive line can put heat on Brees and force him to scramble, be sacked or throw picks.
Titans linebackers cannot forget about the most dangerous tight end in the league, Jimmy Graham, and his beastly abilities to gain power yards.
