Sunday, August 23, the Tennessee Titans took on the St. Louis Rams in week 2 of preseason play. Marcus Mariota was starting his first game at home in a Titans uniform. Mariota threw 8 passes for 59 yards, and 1 rushing touchdown. Great defense and a stellar offense gave Tennessee a quick lead early on.
With the Rams trying to fight back late, the Titans ruined Jeff Fisher’s return to Nissan Stadium with a 27-14 win.
While watching the game Clay Frazier had some though on Mariota’s first home game. “I thought he played good. He made some wise throws and didn’t force anything. He should be the franchise quarterback for years to come.”
This seems to be the way people feel around town. With all the quarterback talk, Noah Schurman really saw good things from running back, kick returner, and punt returner Dexter McCluster.
“That was some great speed and agility from him. He had great vision and I’m really looking forward to a great year from the whole team this year and years to come.”
Finally, Brody Dean had some things to say. “I just want to see that young Hawaiian boy play some football.” As you can see, this is going to be an exciting year of football in the midstate. As the season progresses, we should truly see what Marcus and the rest of the team will do. It’s only uphill from here.
“I’m thinking they will be Super Bowl Champions this year,” proclaimed Jerry White. With momentum and expectations already on their side, we should be seeing a great year of football. With 2 more preseason games to go, the hopes are high to finish out strong and carry that out to the regular season, where they will face #1 overall Draft Pick Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers week 1.
