With the Tennessee Titans allowing over 34 points a game this season, defensive coordinator Jerry Gray had to try something different to get his defense on track.
According to Teresa Walker of the Associated Press, Gray is moving from the sidelines to the press box on game days in an attempt to see the field better.
Gray moved to the press box during the Titans’ 51-20 loss to the Chicago Bears last week.
”You see it all,” Gray said. “You see what goes on and you get a chance to see if there are guys messing up, not messing up. You can make the corrections right quick when you’re talking to the coach the very next play.”
The Titans are currently on pace to allow 547 points this season which would break the record for most points allowed currently held by the 1981 Baltimore Colts. The 1981 Colts allowed 533 points and 6,783 yards, both NFL records. The Titans have allowed 30 or more points in seven of their nine games this season.
Tennessee heads to take on the Miami Dolphins this Sunday. Miami and rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill could give the Titans a chance to see some improvement as the Dolphins have scored more than 21 points in a game just twice this season.
