Titans during Lions: Six Things to Watch
September 16, 2016 - running watch
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Titans transport to Detroit to face a Lions on Sunday.
Here’s a demeanour during 6 things to watch:
Marcus Mariota has been a highway soldier given entering a NFL. In 6 highway games final year, Mariota finished 108 of 171 passes for 1,274 yards with 10 touchdowns and only one interception. His highway passer rating of 105.3 ranked fourth in a joining a year ago. Mariota played good during prolonged stretches in a deteriorate opener opposite a Vikings, though he was concerned in dual turnovers, including an interception that was returned for a touchdown. Mariota aims to rebound behind on Sunday opposite a Lions.
The Titans wish to run a football, there’s no tip about that. In a deteriorate opener, using backs DeMarco Murray (13-42) and Derrick Henry (5-3) carried a round only 18 times between them. The Titans would like to keep a football for extended drives, and using a round with success would certainly assistance a cause. What will a run-pass ratio demeanour like this week? It’s one to watch.
Fantasy football owners wish to know if Walker’s going to be a partial of a offense like final season, when he held 94 passes for 1,088 yards. In Week 1, Walker held only 3 passes for 42 yards. Coach Mike Mularkey fielded questions about Walker’s purpose all week, from his press conferences to his weekly radio show. He pronounced a Titans attempted to get Walker a round some-more in Week 1, though a Vikings focused on shutting him down. It sounds like Walker will be a tip aim this week.
Kevin Dodd, OLBs
The Titans eased rookie linebacker Kevin Dodd behind into a brew while he recovered from feet surgery. With Derrick Morgan out with a hamstring injury, it appears a group is now prepared to spin him loose. Dodd, a second-round collect out of Clemson, had a good week of use after personification sparingly opposite a Vikings. The Titans will be counting on him, along with David Bass and associate rookie Aaron Wallace.
