Two in a row!!!!
It wasn't pretty there at the end, but the Titans managed a win! Second one in a row even! Mularkey stated that they found a way to win, and that they did a lot of good things. He also said the team is on the right track, and acknowledged they have some things to improve on, but they are getting there. Orakpo said that you can see how the team is still learning, and are still trying to create an identity. He also stated that there are things they need to correct, but overall it was a great effort, and the team didn't quit. Now let's go for three in a row!
Kendall Wright showed up to play yesterday. He recorded eight catches for 133 yards, and scored a touchdown. Wright said people kept telling him, "Welcome back," but he hasn't felt that he's ever really left. He also said his teammates were cheering him on, and had his back. Delanie Walker stated he told Wright on the field that he was glad to have him back, and said that Wright balled out yesterday. More performances like that please!
Marcus Mariota also had a big day yesterday. He went 17 for 24, 284 yards, for three touchdowns, and also recorded 64 rushing yards (41 of them came from the first play of the game). He also posted his best QBR of the season so far: 132.6. Walker said that the object of the game is to help your quarterback out, so when they play good, Marcus plays good as well. Mariota says it feels great to have won, and that he is proud of all the guys on his team, and that they all deserve the credit. Mariota did record one interception, however, but..eh. They won so I'm over it.
Glennon gives us four thumbs up, and two thumbs down after yesterday's game. Thumbs up include: finally stringing two wins together for the first time since 2013, Wright balling out and showing some revitalization, Mariota's mobility, and Brian Orakpo recording his seventh sack of the year. His two thumbs down: the defense allowing Kessler to torch them in the first half, and Mariota's forced pass that resulted in an interception.
That's all for today. Happy reading!
