Tennessee Titans Look Strong Versus Rams

The Tennessee Titans defeated the St. Louis Rams 27-24 on Sunday in Week 2 of the NFL Preseason.

The quarterback position for the Titans looked much better than during Week 1. Marcus Mariota looked crisp and was able to move around quite effectively.

A Mariota pass for a touchdown was dropped by Dexter McCluster, but then again so was an interception by LaMarcus Joyner.

Bishop Sankey might just be a legitimate starter in the offensive backfield for the Titans. On Sunday, he ran for 45 yards on 6 carries with a carry of 18 and one for 19.

If he continues playing well, he could see significant time for the Titans.

DaQuan Jones a defensive end for the Titans had to leave the game prior to the first team exiting but his injury still has not been specified. Andre Turzilli an undrafted wide receiver sprained his ankle. Daimion Stafford a safety injured his wrist in the game.

Dorial Green-Beckman a receiver ended the game with 4 receptions for 40 yards. Jeremiah Poutasi a right tackle started and the entire offensive line looked stronger than in Week 1.

When the Titans starters played the Rams starters, the Titans looked stronger. The Titans looked in control and crisp on both offense and defense, as they handled a normally very physical team with ease.

They led 10-0 when some of the starters left, but 17-0 when all the starters were done. Perrish Cox a free agent acquisition intercepted a Rams pass for a 24-yard TD pick.

A poor showing by the Titans in Atlanta caused some alarm on the negative side but that was ended with their play on Sunday against the Rams.

Tennessee coaches are high on Marqueston Huff their backup safety due to his versatility as he could also play corner.

Since 2006, Tennessee has announced attendance as 69,140. However, the team is changing that after an internal audit showed that the attendance was 61,550. The audit caused some people their jobs due to ticket irregularities.

Jeff Fisher the Rams coach was back in Tennessee on the sidelines for the first time since leaving the club following the 2010 season. He received a big applause from the Titan faithful during a welcome tribute that showed a video on the scoreboard.

Tennessee travels next to play Kansas City on Friday. Last year, Tennessee beat Kansas City in the regular season.
