The Titans and Mike Mularkey made Antonio Andrews the feature back or workhorse back for the first time on Sunday. It paid off in a big way as he got 111 all purpose yards. Andrews is part of the reason why the running back position has been devalued, and why the Titans shouldn't go after a back in the draft unless they are truly special, like Ezekiel Elliot of Ohio State University this year or one of Fournette, Hurd, Chubb, Freeman, Cook or one of the other special backs in the 2017 class.
The 2-6 Titans face the undefeated Panthers in an effort to hand them their first loss of the year. Mariota will need to be at his best to win the game against a stout Panthers defense.
The Titans failed in a key moment in the run game, and still won, thanks to some OT heroics by Marcus Mariota and Co.
Mularkey is testing the practice squad with some pop quizzes.
