Titans: Hasselbeck expected to start over Lock against the Colts

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Tennessee Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck is the starting quarterback for one more week. Head coach Mike Munchak made the decision on Monday by saying Hasselbeck will start in Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts.

This must mean that Jake Locker’s shoulder injury needs one more week of rest. While being the starter, Hasselbeck has sparked back-to-back wins against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football on the NFL Network.

In addition, he guided the Titans to a win against the Buffalo Bills.

He is averaging 6.5 yards per pass attempt since taking the job over again and has committed only one turnover, while moving the offense down the field. He gives the Titans more stability right now over the injured Locker.

After the Colts game, the Titans face the Chicago Bears and the Miami Dolphins. Those teams have very good defenses.

Hasselbeck went 22 of 33 for 205 yards in the 35-34 win over the Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York. He also had one touchdown pass.

This season, the veteran signal-caller has appeared in five games, including three starts. He has gone 96 of 156 for 931 yards. Hasselbeck has thrown five touchdown passes and four interceptions.

He has thrown for at least 200 or more years in the past three games. He had a season-high 290 yards in a 26-23 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on October 11th.
