Titans QB Marcus Mariota said the glove he wears is for grip. Isn't the whole hand. He said it's a few fingers that he has tingling with. He felt good throwing the ball today.

Mike Vrabel said Marcus Mariota's about the same as he was last week. Also said Taylor Lewan is close after working one on one with him during practice.

Mike Vrabel said Marcus Mariota's status is still similar to how it was on Friday/Saturday.

Mike Vrabel said adversity will reveal the Titans character. Here's what he said showed today.

Chiefs QB Pat Mahomes has 9 TD passes which set the record for most TD passes in first three games. The record was previously held by Marcus Mariota who tied Mark Rypien (1988) in 2015. Mahomes set the record in two games.

Corey Davis with an outstanding run and catch. He broke multiple tackles and fumbled. Fortunately it went out of bounds for the Titans.

There's Kamalei Correa again. Another play behind the line of scrimmage. This time he sacks Deshaun Watson. That's two sacks in two games. Titans have sacked Watson three times today.

Turron Davenport ESPN 

Titans are clearly the aggressor today. Dean Pees dialed up a perfect nickel blitz and Logan Ryan comes up with the sack.

Mike Vrabel said they had to get creative to score some points. Kevin Byard was the up man on that punt and caught the direct snap and delivered a smooth left handed throw to Dane Cruikshank for a 66-yd TD.

As Blaine Gabbert and the Titans offense takes the field, one thing that jumped out on that last series was the pressure the outside pass rushers got. They forced Deshaun Watson to step up and try to find an escape lane and Jurrell Casey got the sack to force the punt.

Turron Davenport ESPN 

Blaine Gabbert took pretty much all of the snaps during pregame team warmups. Marcus Mariota threw a few passes to TEs and RBs before they came together as a team.
