    knows exactly what the Titans didn’t do in being shut out on its own field for the first time since this franchise moved to Tennessee way back in 1997.In a word Womens Michael Crabtree Jersey , everything.Marcus Mariota was sacked a career-worst 11 times, and the Titans managed just 106 yards total offense in being routed Sunday by the Baltimore Ravens in a game that felt much more lopsided than the 21-0 final.”Bad coaching, not good execution, that’s how it goes,” Vrabel said. “There’s no excuse for it. We have to be better on all levels.”The Titans’ offense couldn’t stay on the field, going three-and-out five times. No drive lasted longer than seven plays, and they never got further than the Baltimore 37. Each time, the Ravens sacked Mariota to push the Titans (3-3) back. Tennessee came into the game having allowed only nine sacks through the first five games.When Taywan Taylor was wide open deep on the Titans’ second drive, Mariota overthrew the receiver. Mariota said he had never been through a game like this before and that it wasn’t a good feeling.”I can do a better job of stepping up in the pocket,” Mariota said. “I put our guys in a bad spot trying to run around too much. Those are things I’ve got to do better.”Wide receiver Corey Davis said the Titans “got whipped.” The Titans’ top receiver caught only one of the four passes Mariota threw at him for 24 yards.”We got to look ourselves in the mirror and change some things,” Davis said.Tennessee was no better on defense, giving up 361 yards and not getting to Joe Flacco even once. The Titans came in leading the NFL in fewest touchdowns allowed inside their own 20, yet the Ravens (4-2) scored each time they got there against a unit being run by Dean Pees. Vrabel lured the former Ravens defensive coordinator to join him last January Authentic Za’Darius Smith Jersey , less than a month after Pees announced his retirement.The Titans allowed the Ravens to convert 12 of 17 third downs (71 percent) and hold the ball for more than 37 minutes.”We just couldn’t get off the field no matter what we did,” said All-Pro safety Kevin Byard, who got his first interception this season. “We called all types of calls. Cover 3, Cover 1, Cover 2. We just couldn’t get off the field.”Now the Titans have lost two straight. Worse, they haven’t scored a touchdown in eight straight quarters, and this was the third game this season without a TD under offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, who had never called plays before this season.And they leave Thursday for the franchise’s first game in London against the Chargers (4-2).First, the Titans know they have some work.”As an offense, we’ve got to look in the mirror, dig down deep, take the tough coaching — no soft … and get back to work,” running back Dion Lewis said.The lone consolation for the Titans even after this skid is they still hold the tiebreaker in a woeful AFC South thanks to earlier victories over Jacksonville and Houston.”You’ve got to have short memory Authentic Matt Skura Jersey ,” center Ben Jones said. “It could be way worse. We are right where you want to be.”Cornerback Logan Ryan called it a bad beating with the Ravens exposing some of their weaknesses.”We’ve got to do a good job of responding and bringing it to London,” Ryan said. “Teams get beat every week. Jacksonville got the brakes blown off of them as well. The division everyone is 3-3, so we are at the top of the division, thankfully, and we’ve got to keep it going. We’ve got to get a win next week.”Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalker Week 1 proved to be more of a primer than a challenge when Baltimore decimated the Buffalo Bills. But how will the Ravens fair in their first road test and divisional game? The Baltimore Beatdown staff forecasts how tonight’s edition of Thursday Night Football will shake out. Sage’s predictions:Only one member of the new receiver trio will score a touchdown.In a dominant performance over the Bills, John Brown, Michael Crabtree and Willie Snead IV all scored in their debuts. However, on a short week against a divisional opponent on the road, only one of the new additions will have an encore performance in the end zone. The Baltimore defense gets far less pressure on the quarterback.Compared to an inexperienced Nathan Peterman, Andy Dalton will be much better at evading sacks. Expect the Ravens to fall significantly short of their six sack total against the Bills in Week 1. Janarion Grant shakes off his first game jitters.As an undrafted rookie, Grant displayed both flashes of brilliance with a 51-yard punt return and moments of ineptitude when he fumbled. With the nerves and anticipation of his first regular season appearance behind him, Grant will show more consistency as a returner in Cincinnati if his hand injury does not keep him off the field. Vasilis’ predictions:James Hurst will allow three sacks.The Bengals stable of potent pass rushers will attack an untested Hurst. Rookie Orlando Brown Jr. will become the starting right tackle sooner rather than later.Buck Allen will eclipse 100 yards from scrimmage.After Alex Collins’ fumble and Kenneth Dixon’s injury, Allen is in line for an increased workload. Buck will make the most of the opportunity and have a big impact in the short passing game.Tyler Eifert will record 10 catches.As the Ravens stack the box to shut down Cincinnati’s rushing attack http://www.ravenscheapstores.com/james-hurst-jersey-cheap , Eifert will serve as Andy Dalton’s outlet valve. Baltimore still does not have the personnel to effectively cover dynamic tight ends. Dustin’s predictions:Lamar Jackson scores a touchdown.Against the Bills, we saw several different packages featuring Lamar Jackson. While none were particularly successful, opposing teams now know they must game plan for him now. Jackson will once again have a role in this game, and this time he will score a rushing touchdown in the red zone. A.J. Green will be shutdown. Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has given the Ravens fits for years. However, Green was virtually a non-factor in both games against Baltimore last season. This was in thanks to the excellent play from cornerbacks Jimmy Smith and Marlon Humphrey. Although Smith is currently suspended, Humphrey will once again step up to the task and limit Green to under 30 receiving yards.Joe Flacco will not throw an interception. Flacco started the season with a dominant performance over Buffalo last Sunday, throwing for three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Flacco looks confident and poised in the pocket right now, which will be on full display against Cincinnati. Flacco’s decision making was impeccable in Week 1 and that will continue this week. While he will not throw for three touchdowns again, Flacco will protect the ball and manage the game well.
