The rookie wide receiver also had his best game of the young 2019 season, totaling 94 yards on three catches, which included a pair of touchdown receptions, both of which came in the first quarter.
Brown provided an immediate spark on offense for Tennessee on its second drive. Mariota hit the Ole Miss product on a pass over the middle of the field, and Brown showed off his wheels by cutting the play back and taking it 55 yards to the house.
On his second touchdown reception, Brown flashed his awareness and body control, as he was able to drag his feet in order to stay in bounds to get the touchdown on a fade route on the side of the end zone. It was a play you’d expect from veterans, but not many rookies.
Brown now has three plays of 40-plus yards for the Titans this season, and he has become the big-play receiver Tennessee have so desperately needed in years past. On top of that, he seems to have great chemistry with Mariota, which could lead to him becoming this team’s No. 1 receiver, if he isn’t already.
