Post What to watch for during Titans-Buccaneers The Titans are
As always Tennessee Titans Womens Hoodie , the primary objective is to get out of the game with no major injuries, but here are a few other storylines to keep an eye on during the game. The preseason debut of Corey DavisGeorge Walker IV-USA TODAY SportsCorey Davis seems to be on track to take the field in a preseason game for the first time tonight. We don’t know how long Davis and the other starters will play, but even seeing him work with Marcus Mariota for a drive or two would be a very positive step. The Titans need their 2017 first round pick to play like the star they drafted him to be this year. With Rishard Matthews’ status still up in the air and Eric Decker dropping balls in New England, the Titans are putting a lot of eggs in the Corey Davis basket. The good news is that Davis has looked like one of the best players on the field during training camp. He still has moments of inconsistency, but he’s also making a ton of plays and has turned in some truly unbelievable catches while working against a very good group of cornerbacks. The Titans offense targets him frequently in the passing game in practices and I would expect that to be the case tonight as well. Davis turning in a strong performance and helping the first team offense click like it did in Green Bay would be a great first step for the second year wide receiver.Taylor Lewan vs Jason Pierre-PaulChristopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsDuring the Titans-Bucs joint practices this week, Pierre-Paul got the best of Lewan in a couple reps, including one that the Bucs’ Twitter account put out from a one-on-one pass rush drill. Pierre-Paul then scoffed at Paul Kuharsky when he asked him about competing against Lewan, acting like he dominated the Titans left tackle. JPP is one of the best pass rushers in the NFL so there is no shame in getting beat by him on a couple reps, but knowing Lewan’s personality I wouldn’t be surprised to see 77 come out with an extra large chip on his shoulder when he lines up against Pierre-Paul tonight. This should be a fun battle to watch. Wide receiver rotationUSA TODAY NETWORK-WisconsinWe know that Corey Davis will likely get the start at one wide receiver position, but I’ll be interested to see who is taking the first team reps opposite him. That had been Taywan Taylor’s role for the majority of the offseason, but Tajae Sharpe has reportedly gotten some reps there this week as well. I would still expect to see Taylor open the first drive with the starters, but it’s possible that Sharpe gets a reward for a strong week of practices. In the slot, I would still expect to see Nick Williams working as the top option inside with Michael Campanaro continuing to deal with whatever injury is holding him out of practice, but it will be interesting to see if Deontay Burnett gets any run earlier in the game. Burnett continues to make plays in practice and looked pretty good with limited opportunities in Green Bay, but he’ll need to show more to truly get in the mix for a 53-man roster spot. The other guy I want to see more of is Devin Ross. He’s another undrafted receiver that has shown some promise in camp and had a nice catch and run on a WR screen against the Packers. I think he’s most likely competing for a practice squad spot rather than a 53-man roster spot right now, but he’s been good in camp.Will last week’s stars shine again?Benny Sieu-USA TODAY SportsThe way to earn a role — or a roster spot — during training camp and preseason is to bring it every time out. It’s not enough to just flash once and then coast. Coaches want to see consistency and for bottom of the roster players, they want to see if they can do it against better competition.That will likely be the test for the stars of the Titans first preseason game. Players like Harold Landry, Sharif Finch, Corey Levin, LeShaun Sims, and Jayon Brown will be looking to stack another strong performance as they make a case for a bigger role. Landry, Sims, and Brown are all going to make this roster, but could earn more playing time. The stakes are higher for guys like Levin and Finch who are fighting for roster spots. Adoree’ JacksonChristopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY SportsJackson has been one of the stars of training camp and he may have had his biggest day during Thursday’s practice against the Bucs. He recorded three interceptions during that practice Womens Customized Tennessee Titans Jerseys , including this pass in the endzone that he tipped to himself and then celebrated with a casual flip.The flip is cool, but the coverage here is fantastic as he mirrors DeSean Jackson’s route and makes it look easy. I get that his first preseason game wasn’t great. He gave up a couple catches and missed a tackle during the Packers opening drive, but I really think Jackson is going to have a Byard-esque breakout campaign this year. We saw him start coming on late last season and he’s picked up where he left off this year. Keep an eye on 25 tonight.Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota: Week 4, 2018 The Titans are riding a three-game winning streak, and they’re doing so at the right time. With Marcus Mariota gradually getting healthier and feeling more comfortable in Matt LaFleur’s offense, starting off 3-1 in the first quarter of the season is huge for the current leaders of the AFC South.On Sunday, Mariota came through for the Titans with one of his best career performances, completing a nice 69.8 percent of his passes for 344 yards, two touchdowns, a pick, and a rushing touchdown. His efforts pushed Tennessee over the top in overtime against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles 26-23.For this week’s edition of Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota, let’s take a look at what exactly made the fourth-year quarterback silence his critics.gamepass.nfl.comMany of you are familiar with the work I’ve done on Mariota’s pocket movement in the past: His reputation is as a running quarterback when in actuality he’s at his best moving around the pocket. This was certainly highlighted on Sunday.On this 3rd and 7, Mariota is flushed out of the pocket due to blindside pressure, but manages to keep his balance and his eyes downfield. He cuts back inside the pocket, keeping his composure under pressure, and fires what should be a first down to second-year tight end Jonnu Smith. Instead, the ball is dropped—which was a common theme on Sunday—but Mariota’s pocket discipline and ability to keep the play alive are duly noted and appreciated.gamepass.nfl.comIn the past I’ve also compared Mariota’s style of passing to that of Tom Brady and Philip Rivers: Both quarterbacks process the field extremely quickly and have the ball out of their hands in the blink of an eye. Mariota plays similarly.Here, Mariota showcases his ability to quickly cycle through his progressions. His first read isn’t open, so he gets through the rest of his progressions in a flash before finding an open Corey Davis—who had a massive game—on the left sideline. That Mariota is able to keep his composure despite the presence of the edge rusher on the near side shows that he doesn’t anticipate pressure and plays calmly in spite of it.gamepass.nfl.comOn a 3rd and short, Mariota once again keeps his composure in order to convert a first down, this time doing it against interior pressure. He recognizes the rush in time as he glides past it while resetting his feet and putting this ball in a perfect position to Corey Davis. So not only is the pocket movement beautiful, but the ball placement is excellent, allowing Davis an opportunity to get yards after the catch after converting the first down.That’s another thing: The connection between Marcus Mariota and Corey Davis was something that was never realized until Sunday, when Davis rolled for nine catches for 161 yards and the game winning touchdown.gamepass.nfl.comThere’s not too much to say about this rainbow to Davis www.titanscheapshops.com , but it shows how accurate Mariota has become as a downfield passer (he was one of the more accurate deep passers in the 2017-18 Deep Ball Project). The trajectory of this ball is sublime and it’s dropped right into Davis’ breadbasket. gamepass.nfl.comIncredibly, the Titans were able to pull this win off despite five drops from the receivers. None proved more near costly than this drop from Darius Jennings on another rainbow from Mariota. Fortunately, Tennessee was able to eventually score on this anxiety inducing drive, which included three fourth down conversions—one of which was aided by a defensive pass interference penalty.gamepass.nfl.comThis initially looks like awful coverage from safety Corey Graham, and it is as it allows Taiwan Taylor a nice, wide open spot to convert a 4th and 15 in overtime.From another angle, however, it would seem that Graham became the latest victim of Mariota’s eye manipulation.gamepass.nfl.comIf you look a little closely, you’ll see that where Mariota is looking as he sets to fire the ball isn’t where he’s actually firing the ball. His eyes keep Graham in check, exploiting him and fitting this one in on the sideline to Taylor for a massive fourth down conversion. This is another reason I say that Mariota is at his best as a pocket passer: He’s one of the best quarterbacks at manipulating the secondary with his eyes, and under Matt LaFleur it seems it’s becoming more and more realized.gamepass.nfl.comEventually, Mariota was able to throw the game winning touchdown to—who else—Davis to give the Titans a 3-1 start to the season.Beyond Mike Vrabel’s aggressive mindset on fourth downs in overtime to play for the win and Matt LaFleur’s ability to give his quarterback a scheme that actually makes sense, Marcus Mariota was the most comfortable he’s been all season, maybe in the last two years. His interception was a bad throw, but he was otherwise fantastic on the day, constantly making precise passes and pocket adjustments under pressure.The receiving corps is still a concern, but Davis’ big day was a nice sign, so hopefully he’ll be able to continue being reliable for Mariota. Still, with LaFleur at the helm and Vrabel doing nice work in his first four games as head coach, Mariota easily has the best surrounding cast he’s ever had. And as he’s getting healthier and going into Week 5 coming off a phenomenal performance, Titans fans definitely have to be pleased at the start to the season.
