The series: The Seahawks are 9-5 against the Titans, which includes four games played after the team moved from Houston to Tennessee in 1997. The teams have played only twice since 1998, and once since 2005, a 17-13 Titans win in Tennessee in January 2010.
The early line: Seahawks by 13½ points.
Key players: Former Washington star Jake Locker started the first four games for the Titans at quarterback before suffering a hip injury in a win over the Jets on Sept. 29. He will not play against Seattle on Sunday. His replacement is Ryan Fitzpatrick. Sixth-year running back Chris Johnson leads the Titans in rushing with 294 yards. Former Baylor standout Kendall Wright is the team’s leading receiver with 26 catches for 266 yards. Former Washington State defensive lineman and Clover Park grad Ropati Pitoitua has started four games and has 15 tackles and three sacks.
Tennessee’s key to success: Tennessee was 3-1 under Locker, using an efficient offense and an opportunistic defense. The Titans lost Sunday to Kansas City with Fitzpatrick playing QB. Tennessee’s most notable number is a plus-eight turnover margin that ranks second in the NFL behind Kansas City’s plus-10; Seattle is third at plus-seven. Tennessee has been good defensively on third down as opponents have converted just 18 of 64 against the Titans (28.1 percent), third-best in the NFL.
