3 Keys for Success vs Titans

Run the Damned Ball
First and foremost, we have to establish some sort of running attack.   The Tennessee D-Line, led by possibly the best DT in pro football, Albert Haynesworth, has been beastly this year.  With the injuries to all are backs, we have to show that we can run the ball.  If we can keep Will linebacker Keith Bulluck and strong safety Chris Hope focused on the running attack, we have a chance to exploit some of the Titans weaker positional players on defense. 
Tackles Must Step Up
The Titans rotate a lot of defensive lineman (as we have been doing this season) with great success.  Kyle Vanden Bosch, Antwan Odom and Travis Laboy all have 2 sacks thus far from the end spots.  Rookie Donald Penn has a tough matchup against a crafty Vanden Bosch.  If Garcia has no time, we have no chance, plain and simple. 
Keep Vince Inside the Hashes
Just as we used to do to Michael Vick, we must keep the pressure on Vince without allowing that pressure to force him into running the ball to places where we can’t stop them.  With Barret Ruud questionable right now, this is even more pertinent.  We must force Vince to run the ball back inside the hashes, where he has less chance of really moving the chains.
