Titans-Colts winners and losers: A terrible day for Marcus Mariota

New, comments

Will the Titans ever beat the Colts?

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Cubs are in the World Series. I never thought I would see that in my lifetime. Now I am starting to believe that I will never see the Titans beat the Colts again in my lifetime. This seemed like the perfect week for it to happen with the game at Nissan Stadium against a really beat-up Colts team, but alas, it was not to be.

WINNERS

DeMarco Murray- One thing you can count on (besides the Titans losing to the Colts) is Murray being the star of the offense. He had another big day with 107 yards rushing and 20 yards receiving. I say this every week, but I am still amazed at the fact that Jon Robinson was able to get Murray for as cheap as he did.

Delanie Walker- Just another day with 7 catches for 84 yards and a touchdown for the Titans All-Pro (at least he should be) tight end.e

LOSERS

Marcus Mariota- It is impossible to predict how Mariota will play from week to week. He was bad the first month of the season, but he was good the last two weeks. Today he was terrible. His passes were high all day long, he had an interception that got called back because of a penalty, and had a fumble that was returned for a touchdown to seal the game. The mark of a good quarterback is consistency. Mariota is anything but that right now.

The pass rush- The Titans were only able to manage one sack against a terrible offensive line after back to back weeks with 6 sacks. Andrew Luck had all day to throw and finished with 353 yards. The lack of pass rush also reminded us how terrible the secondary is.
