We are tied at 7.Titans cap off a beautiful drive with a 4-yard TD from Marcus Mariota to Darius Jennings. Mariota makes a beautiful throw on third down to Nick Williams for a 38 yard gain.Football is finally (sort of) back! The Titans open their 2018 preseason with a trip to Lambeau Field to take on the Packers. We probably won’t get to see much of the starters- possibly a series or two. It’s better than nothing.The list of players that probably won’t appear for the Titans is pretty long. It is reasonable to assume that we won’t see Corey Davis Womens Derrick Henry Jersey
