The Tennessee Titans are on a winning streak.
The Tennessee Titans are now 2-1 and the most important thing is that they are 2-0 in the AFC South.
Early in the 1st quarter, an illegal hit to the head sent Gabbert off the field with a concussion and in came Marcus Mariota.
I will get into it a little later, but this was a great game for Marcus Mariota despite a misleading statline. In fact, this is a great test for national media. If some says for example that Gabbert won this game for the Titans then you know they didn’t watch or even track the game.
If they say that Mariota didn’t play well because of his statline, it just means that they didn’t watch the game or don’t understand that a good effort doesn’t mean your numbers have to look like a video game.
The state of the NFL right now is that, until a smaller market team takes a commanding lead in a division or until they fit the narratives that the national media had before the season they are largely ignored. That is one reason why I do my power rankings article each week, so that you can tell the pretenders from the people who actually watched the games.
So be careful of that as you read through articles this week. If you have had enough of that then just follow me on twitter and/or the Titan Sized account to read articles from people who have watched the games and critically analyzed the Titans.
Anyway, enough of that rant let’s get to grading.
