While the Tennessee Titans’ offense has struggled this year, the defense has bordered on elite, which we saw once again in a Week 15 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Going into their Week 16 matchup against the Titans on Thursday night, the San Francisco 49ers are well aware that they’ll have a tough task in scoring against Tennessee’s defense.
“Their whole defense just as a whole, we haven’t seen them for a few years and it’s not just their defense, it’s their whole team,” 49ers head coach Kyle Shanhan said. “They’re extremely physical. It starts with their front seven, with their D-Line and their linebackers. But then it goes all the way back to their backend, both safeties, they come up, are very good tacklers. They don’t make many mistakes and they got real good ball skills that’ll make you pay too.”
Now, a look at what else Shanahan and other 49ers had to say about their Week 16 opponent, the Titans.
