Chargers coach Anthony Lynn on what offensive weapons from the Titans could pose a threat to the Chargers:

Their offensive line. They have two All Pro tackles, and they have the first pick of the draft at quarterback. They have a really solid backfield. Offensively, those guys can play power football and run action with the best of them. I think they are completing over 70 percent of his balls anytime they're in run action. Once they get that running game going in run actions, they'll be that more effective. They're a good football team. They beat the world champions. In the first quarter of our season, they're 3-1. You know that they can play good football, and they did it with two different quarterbacks.
