NASHVILLE – Another drive where the Chargers pick up chunks of yards, seemingly at will, via the pass. The Titans have changed up some coverages and moved Nick Harper off Vincent Jackson for a while, but the results were the same.
Jackson again got wide open with a double move, but the pass from Philip Rivers just missed. Rivers carved them for 10-20 yard chunks, a pass interference call put the ball at the 1-yard line and then L.T. punched it in, again. Would be some kind of comeback now for the Titans to erase a 28-10 deficit midway through the third quarter.
Rivers is now 16-for-22 for 210 yards and two TDs in the game. That’s pretty much perfect.
With the Titans trailing so much, we’ll be deprived, I imagine, of seeing as much Chris Johnson as I’d like. Johnson was averaging 6.6 yards per carry in the first half, but the game just hasn’t been conducive to running as much as they like. If this holds up it would pretty much end Johnson’s quest for the single-season rushing mark.
