Tennessee Titans fall to New York Jets 7-3 in Preseason Opener

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans offense looked slugish at best Saturday night in their 7-3 loss to the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. The offense as a whole had problems stopping the blitz. Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was sacked hard by Jets defensive lineman Leonard Williams. Mariota got right up and went on like nothing happened.

The New York Jets took their opening drive 78 yards for a touchdown. Quarterback Josh McCown hit wide receiver Charone Peake with a 4 yard pass for the score. The Tennessee defense stiffened up after this and did not allow the Jets another point.

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – With his quarterback in place and five Pro Bowl selections due to return in 2017, among several more core players, Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson can add more through free agency and the 2017 NFL Draft.

Players not under contract for 2017 are free to sign with another club at that point. The Titans are projected to be comfortably below the NFL’s 2017 salary cap, which will exceed its 2016 number of $155 million.
