Call it the result of being one-player reliant on offense, but there wasn’t a single Tennessee Titans receiver that hauled in more than three passes in Week 5. Then again, Ryan Tannehill hit seven different receivers at least once to notch 14 completions on the afternoon (he attempted 22 passes). With that being said, we’ll use a different phrase to describe this Titans offensive passing attack.

We’ll call it ‘balanced’. How’s that? Yeah, the Titans were balanced on offense.

Kudos are definitely in order for MyCole Pruitt, who reached the end zone on a 14-yard TD reception, the only one that Tannehill would throw on the afternoon (and Pruitt’s first touchdown snag of the season), but how about Marcus Johnson, huh?

A nice camp was short-circuited by injury, but Johnson got a taste of some in-game action in Week 5. Ley’s just say he satisfied that sweet tooth. Johnson, after being activated on October 4th found his way onto the field for 48 snaps on offense and made them count.

Once this one wrapped, he had snagged three receptions, which tied him for the team lead. He also led the Titans in receiving yards with 52 big ones. It wasn’t a bad day at the office.
