Titans At Giants: Five Things To Watch Sunday

Let's talk about the things to watch Sunday when the Tennessee Titans invade New Meadowlands Stadium to face our New York Giants. You can probably figure most of these out from what we have talked about all week, but here goes.

  1. Can the Giants contain the dynamic Chris Johnson? No way Perry Fewell's crew holds Johnson, who gained 2,0006 yards in 2009, to the paltry 34 he gained last week against Pittsburgh. I will settle for 100-100, to be honest, especially if the Giants can prevent the speedy Johnson from breaking off any long runs.
  2. Can the Giants offensive line hold up? This will, pretty much, be a question every week the rest of the season. Adam Koets appear likely to make his first career start at center Sunday with Shaun O'Hara having missed practice all week due to his ankle/achilles issues. Koets is justifiably excited, and his mom probably is, too, but I doubt most Giants fans will be happy to see him snapping the ball to Eli Manning. The offensive line was awful against Indianapolis, and that was with O'Hara, a Pro Bowl center, playing. Over at Music City Miracles, Titans fans are proud of the work done by their defensive line so far in 2010. So, the Giants offensive line needs to find some answers -- fast.
  3. Can we get some turnovers, please? Fewell's defense is built around creating turnovers, and the Titans are -5 in turnovers so far this season. If the offensive line can keep Manning upright, and the defense can rattle Vince Young, maybe the Giants can catch a couple of breaks in this department.
  4. Keith Bulluck -- After 10 years as a tremendous player for Tennessee, Bulluck is a Giant now. We know he will be fired up to face his former team. Hopefully, he brings some attitude.
  5. How about some emotion? -- Shoot, I will even take a 15-yard penalty for too much celebrating if the Giants can bring emotion and energy Sunday. That's been missing too often the past couple of seasons, and Antrel Rolle told the world this week that it was missing last Sunday against Indianapolis.
