Here's what else we learned:
- We still don't agree with the Titans' decision to play Jake Locker this week, but the quarterback appeared to come out of the game healthy. He made some nice throws in the second half and didn't seem terribly limited by the hip injury that cost him two games. Now he gets a bye week to continue his recovery.
- Colin Kaepernick looks like a player rounding into form. The shackles were taken off the quarterback in the read option and he responded with 68 yards on the ground, including a pretty 20-yard scoring run, his first rushing touchdown of the year. Something tells us the best of Kaepernick has yet to come this season.
- Titans coach Mike Munchak said last week he was "proud" of how Kenny Britt had handled his decrease in playing time in recent weeks. Britt posted a typical 2013 stat line Sunday (one catch, eight yards) and picked up a personal foul late in the game in which he lost his cool and slammed his helmet to the ground on the sideline. It's a tiresome act.
- The Titans' 3-1 start feels about a million miles away at this point. Tennessee got bullied by a clearly superior team, losing for the third consecutive week. The performance summoned memories of last season, when the Titans found themselves blown out of a game before fans had gotten to their second beer.
