In week one, the Titans ran for 112 rushing yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers. In week two, Tennessee racked up 129 against the Texans. If the trend continues, you would expect the Titans to have their best rushing effort on Sunday against the Chargers.

San Diego ranks 22nd in rushing defense in the league -- which is good for the Titans. This feels like the week where Chris Johnson finally explodes, right?

Last week, Johnson rushed for 96 yards, just shy of the century mark. He still has yet to score a touchdown, and still hasn't broke off a big run (his long is 16 yards). But this could be that week. Expect Tennessee to test that Chargers run defense, and expect them to succeed.
