Here’s what we took away from the second preseason game.

Despite a slow start to the contest, the Titans first-team offense looked good once again. Derrick Henry had four touches on the first series and looked good as a runner and receiver. It feels like the Titans are waiting for the regular season to unleash the whole of his pass-catching ability. There was one bad miscue with a throw from Marcus Mariota to Corey Davis, but it was mostly due to great coverage, and perhaps a slight miscommunication]]> 5275681 Sun, 19 Aug 2018 6:15:01 EDT Titans Wire
<![CDATA[WATCH: Taywan Taylor outruns everyone for 47-yard TD]]> Marcus Mariota hit Taywan Taylor on a screen pass. Taylor got a little bit of daylight, and it turns out that’s all he needed.

This is so nicely done by the Titans and a testament to what offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur brings to the table. There wasn’t anything fancy about this, he’s just prioritizing getting his playmakers the ball in space. We can expect plenty more of this this season]]> 5275372 Sat, 18 Aug 2018 21:09:01 EDT Titans Wire
<![CDATA[Titans vs. Buccaneers: How to watch Titans second preseason game]]> Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston meet again. It’s the second time the top two picks in the 2015 draft will face each other in an NFL game, and the first since they opened the 2015 regular season against one another. Tennessee won that one handily.

Saturday’s game will have a different atmosphere, although the Titans will hope Mariota experiences the same level of success he did a few years back against Tampa Bay.

The starters will get a little more run than they did in Green Bay. There they only played one series. They won’t get an entire half Saturday, but don’t be surprised if the starting units get heavy work in the first quarter and perhaps a series in the second]]> 5274200 Fri, 17 Aug 2018 15:03:01 EDT Titans Wire

The Packers still saw a few interesting performances, highlighted by Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s incredible 5-catch, 101-yard game. Oren Burks showcased his speed; Reggie Gilbert proved he can be the No. 3 edge rusher; and Brett Hundley looked as comfortable throwing the football at Lambeau Field as he ever has]]> 5272901 Wed, 15 Aug 2018 22:39:01 EDT Packers Wire
<![CDATA[Extra work paying off for Corey Davis, Marcus Mariota]]> Corey Davis’ NFL career got off to a rocky start with a hamstring injury derailing his rookie campaign and limiting him to 11 games and nine starts. More importantly, his training camp was cut down to just a couple days before he sustained that injury.

It was clear all season that Davis and quarterback Marcus Mariota weren’t on the same page. Despite a strong six-catch, 69-yard debut in Week 1, Davis didn’t put up consistent production all season. The talent was there, but the cohesion with Mariota was not]]> 5272607 Wed, 15 Aug 2018 16:48:01 EDT Titans Wire
