• DeMarco Murray had another 100 yard game, with 121 yards.
• Just as Brian Orakpo predicted earlier in the week, sacks would come for the other guys. The team had 6. Jurrell Casey had 2, Derrick Morgan had 2, and Brian Orakpo had 2.
• Marcus Mariota finally looked like the quarterback we drafted number two overall, with three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown.
• Austin Johnson, who has been inactive for a majority of the year, had a pass defended (batted down) and a clean tackle for a loss.
• Jason McCourty had a nice strip interception against DeVante Parker, much like he did last week against DeAndre Hopkins.
• After firing Bobby April, the team’s special teams coordinator, the Titans special teams still looked bad. They allowed another punt return for a touchdown and an extra point attempt was blocked.
• Jason McCourty got beat by DeVante Parker deep down the sideline.
• Taylor Lewan continues to struggle with penalties.
• Delanie Walker had some ugly drops.
• Marcus Mariota failed to get out of bounds before half time to stop the clock in a hurry up offense.
• Tajae Sharpe still hasn’t found the level of play he exhibited in the preseason.
This was easily the best game Tennessee has played this year. This is the best time for the Titans to gain some momentum as their next three game stretch consists of the winless Browns, the struggling Colts, and the Jaguars, all at home. If the team plays against these opponents like they did against the Dolphins, 4-3 should easily be pulled off.
