Paul Kuharsky reported earlier today that Marcus Mariota is expected to play tomorrow night against the Colts. We have been talking all week about how this is the direction that things were trending. It is good to get some reassurance here from PK.
The Titans really need this game. 3-3 would put the Titans in a tie for the AFC South lead. I feel pretty good about their chances in this game with Mariota under center. The Titans don’t get many chances to play in front of a national audience. I am so glad the first national exposure this team gets won’t be with Matt Cassel playing quarterback. They might not ever get another primetime game.
It is going to be a fun game to watch. The Titans will probably have some trouble stopping the Colts, but should be able to put up plenty of points against their defense. I am predicting 34-27 Titans. What say you?
