Tennessee Titans 34 – New England Patriots 10

The Tennessee Titans sacked the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady three times on Sunday.  Yes, three times. 

They kept the pressure on Brady throughout the game, and Brady looked mighty uncomfortable out there. So much so, he was pulled in the fourth quarter and replaced with backup QB Brian Hoyer.

Now, who would have imagined such things would be happening this past Sunday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville? Not many.

Tennessee Titans beat Super Bowl champs in overtime thriller

Tennessee Titans 26 – Philadelphia Eagles 23 (OT)

The Titans had a game with touchdowns!!! After last week’s field goal fest against the Jaguars, touchdowns are the best thing ever.  

Quarterback Marcus Mariota completed two touchdown passes and also ran for a two-yard touchdown. His TD was the first Tennessee touchdown in two weeks. The game-winning pass to wide receiver Corey Davis in overtime was a heart stopper.  And all this happened with Mariota still working his way back from an elbow injury.

The week leading up to the game against the Philadelphia Eagles was rather strange in that veteran wide receiver Rishard Matthews asked for the Titans to release him, which they did. Matthews had signed an extension during pre-season and it was unexpected that he would want to leave. Matthews did tell A-Z Sports that he was unhappy with the number of plays he was getting.

The Tennessee Titans will have to rely on their young wide receivers Tajae Sharpe, Corey Davis, and Taywan Taylor going forward. Judging from this week’s game, the team is going to be fine. Corey Davis finally had his breakout game and his first regular-season touchdown.  He was hampered in his rookie year by a lingering hamstring injury.

The Titans Agony of Defeat

Hopes were high for the Tennessee Titans.  They were relishing the “underdog” role against the number one seed New England Patriots and were confident after getting an upset victory last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.  

Titans players were quoted in the press saying “it’s our time”.  They were confident in their quarterback, Marcus Mariota, insinuating that the Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady might be past his prime and due for a fall from the NFL throne.

At the beginning of the game, it looked like the Titans had a good chance to beat the Patriots; the Titans were first to score late in the first quarter when Mariota threw a 15-yard pass to rookie wide receiver Corey Davis for a touchdown.  It was Davis’ first NFL touchdown, a one-handed catch that got the Titans on the board and it felt like a breakthrough for the Titans first-round draft pick. Finally, during a playoff game, Davis made a big play. The glee didn’t last for long as the Patriots were able to score on their next possession and even the score.

Tennessee Titans Draft

Hooray, the Draft is over!  No more mock drafts and speculation.  Tennessee Titans’ general manager Jon Robinson got two tons of kudos for his draft wheelin’ and dealin’ for 2016, so there was a lot of anticipation with this season’s draft.  Would JR trade down to get more drafts in the first round or would he stay with picks 5 and 18?

Well, turns out the boss man stayed with the designated picks and didn’t do any trading until day 2. Mr. Robinson did help turn this team around from a 3 wins 13 losses 2015 season to a 9 wins -7 losses 2016 season; so Titan Nation should have known that they were in good hands for the draft.

The team’s main needs were wide receiver and cornerback, and the number 1 pick was WR Corey Davis from Western Michigan.  I did go to the Titans draft party at Nissan Stadium on Thursday, and the crowd was cheering when Davis’ name was called by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. 

Head Coach Mike Mularkey later said that the main goal was to draft guys that were competitive and put the team first, and for the positions that they needed.  The team wasn’t looking for the best player available on the board this year, but for the best player that was needed. Corey Davis will be another target for Marcus Mariota, he’s fast, determined and he has said that Mariota is his favorite quarterback in the league.
