Patriots 22 Titans 17 quick recap

NFL: Preseason-New England Patriots at Tennessee Titans Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

We are now one step closer to the regular season. Some things that jumped out to me during this one:

  • Marcus Mariota looked much sharper tonight than he did last week finishing the night 6 of 9 for 63 yards a touchdown.
  • The touchdown was a really nice pass to Delanie Walker.

It is so great to see Delanie back out there.

  • AJ Brown saw his first action of the preseason. He didn’t have a catch but did draw a big DPI penalty on the Titans TD drive.
  • Sharif Finch continues to show up. He was around the quarterback all night and drew a holding penalty in the end zone for a safety.
  • Jeremy McNichols is making his case to be on this roster. I don’t know that they keep a 4th running back behind Derrick Henry, Dion Lewis and David Fluellen, but McNichols is making them think about doing it.
  • The defensive line battle is shaping up to be interesting. Mike Vrabel had good things to say about Austin Johnson this week, but Isaiah Mack showed up in this one again. They also like Matt Dickerson. Is their room on the roster for all of those guys?
