Packers-Titans: three keys
CJ1K You don't think of Tennessee as an explosive offense but running back Chris Johnson can still rip off big runs including his 94 yarder against the Jets Monday night. Johnson has three scores of 80+ yards this year and while he doesn't put up the same yardage totals as he did in 2009-2010 his healthy 4.8 yards per carry would suggest he is still a threat.
Outside Pressure The Titans have just 31 sacks this year but the Packers offensive line has struggled all year, even against weaker defenses. Once again, Marshall Newhouse and Don Barclay (who is questionable) will be challenged as Tennessee's best pass rushers are on the edges: defensive ends Derrick Morgan and Kamerion Wimbley have combined for 9.5 sacks this year.
James Jones With Jordy Nelson out for another week Jones will again take on a larger role. After seeing his targets diminish recently Jones re-emerged against Chicago and will likely draw attention from the Tennessee secondary. With the Titans 30th in scoring defense another big day is not out of the question
Prediction Packers 28, Titans 13
