Titans coach deciding whether to bench Mariota for Tannehill

Titans coach deciding whether to bench Mariota for Tannehill

In this episode of the First-and-Orange podcast, Denver Post beat writers Kyle Newman and Ryan O'Halloran discuss the Broncos' 16-0 win over the Titans in Week 6 at Empower Field.

His final statline for the game is absolutely brutal: 7-of-18 for 63 yards, two interceptions and a 9.5 QB rating. Tannehill finished the day 13 of 16 for 144 yards but also threw an interception.

Tannehill, a 2012 first-round pick who was the Miami Dolphins' starter for seven seasons before being released this offseason, completed a quick pass to Corey Davis on an out-breaking route for his first completion as a Titan.

After the game, Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was noncommital on who will be the starter moving forward, saying he'll take time to evaluate before making a decision, according to Jon Burton of NewsChannel 5.

"We're trying to get W's", Byard said. "They play really well together, they've got a really good back end and they've got some really good guys up front, so it's going to be a big challenge this week". "When we have our opportunities, we've just got to go make plays". "We failed to put points on the board".

The Denver Broncos and Tennessee Titans each entered the 2019 National Football League season with hopes of contending for playoff spots.


"I don't know what the situation is going to be, but soon enough we'll all find out", Walker said. He was also sacked three times.

"We have a great relationship", Tannehill said.

Broncos fans will tell you, there's no guarantee that will happen all season long.

Both Denver and Tennessee were 2 of 14 on third downs, leading to 17 punts.

The first half featured more flags (10) and punts (11) than points (six).

The Broncos host the Titans on Sunday in a game that is a virtual must-win for the 1-4 Broncos. And Royce Freeman was a reliable receiver out of the backfield, helping a bit when Emmanuel Sanders missed the entire second half with a knee injury.
