PFF numbers on the Tennessee Titans
Top 3 Performers on Offense
(Locker is #1 but is injured obviously)
1. Michael Roos-OL 7.5
Has good ratings in every way possible, run block, pass block, screen block..etc.
2. Nate Washington-WR 7.0
Has been a very reliable WR for them, hasn't really clicked with Fitzpatrick though.
3. Kendall Wright-WR 3.7
Has been their most explosive receiving threat.
Worst 3 Performers on Offense
1. Robert Turner-OL -13.6
I don't understand how this guy is in their starting lineup, he has the worst ranking of any offensive lineman in the NFL. Just plain offensive, terrible on run blocking, terrible on pass blocking, about the only thing he does right is not getting penalized.
2. Kenny Britt-WR -9.1
Bad receiver, bad run blocker, bad with penalties, just plain bad.
3. Chance Warmack-OL
-6.8 Terrible pass-blocker
Top 3 Performers on Defense
1. Jurell Casey-DL 15.6
3rd round pick in 2011 has been absolutely beasting this season, can stop the run and rush the QB equally well, will be the second best defensive lineman that the 49ers have gone up against after JJ Watt.
2. Alterraun Verner-CB 11.2
Richard Sherman without the mouth, terrific lockdown corner, a bit undersized at 5'10, 189, doesn't do especially well as a tackler.
3. Jason McCourty-CB 7.3
Another very good performer in a high quality secondary.
Worst 3 Performers on Defense
1. Moises Fokou-LB -9.6
Fokou is apparently what he says to his own team, he's been bad. Struggles in pass coverage and in stopping the run, has seen his snaps reduced somewhat recently.
2. Zack Brown-LB -5.0
Has improved in the past few weeks but has been weak against the run and the pass as well,decent pass rush numbers but little else.
3. Ropati Pitoitua-DL -3.2
Hasn't brought anything to the table as a pass rusher.

This is a game that the 49ers will have to win on the ground. Tennessee is outstanding when it comes to its pass defense and brings an intense pass rush as well. Their linebackers as a group aren't very impressive and have struggled to stop the run all season. On defense, their running game has struggled immensely, ESPECIALLY running behind TE and running behind Center or Right Guard, basically running anywhere to the right has resulted in an average less than 2 yards per carry.
