    <p><em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em></p> <p>NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans' defense certainly played well enough to win Saturday, but a lack of takeaways and a few untimely big plays allowed were enough to help Baltimore win at LP Field.</p> <p>Here are a couple key elements reviewed by Jason Paradise of ESPN Stats & Analysis.</p> <p><strong>RUSHING FLACCO</strong></p> <p>The Titans prided themselves all year on getting to the passer without adding rushers to the defensive line effort. But against Baltimore's <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11252" target="_new">Joe Flacco</a>, they had good results the seven times they sent five or more after the QB.</p> <table border="0" align="center"> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="500" bgcolor="#c0c0c0"> <tr> <td> <table border="0" cellspacing="1" width="100%"> <tr> <td

    7 blitzes effective, but NOT called on 3rd down to prevent the purple pukes from getting into FG position - I HATE SCHWARTZ!!!!!!!!!

    Big news that Titan D is geared around Fat Albert - thanks Paul you suck!
