In a game dominated by the teams' respective running backs, Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker couldn't get much going against the St. Louis Rams. Only a rushing touchdown kept Locker's fantasy day from being an abject disaster as the Titans won, 28-21.
In his second game back from injury, Locker completed 13-of-22 passes for 185 yards, his third-highest total of the season. He also threw for two interceptions, tripling his season total, and no touchdowns. Locker's rushing score came on a five-yard run early in the fourth quarter, putting the Titans ahead, 21-14.
Fantasy impact: It's hard to judge Locker too harshly for his performance Sunday, as running back Chris Johnson had a huge game, and the team wanted to feed it to him as often as possible. Also, the Rams defense has been very strong of late.
That said, 185 yards, no scores, and two interceptions is a horrible game, no matter how you slice it. Locker and his fantasy owners have to have loved that rushing score, because it's the only thing salvaging any value. The Titans play the Jacksonville Jaguars next week, a helpful salve for any struggling offensive player.
