Winners and Losers from Titans 9 , Jaguars 6 The Titans got a critical win over a division rival for a second straight week as the Tennessee defense out-dueled the vaunted Jacksonville defense and turned Blake Bortles in to... well... Blake Bortles. Here are the winners and losers from the game. WinnersMarcus MariotaIt’s rare that the quarterback of a game that finished 9-6 can be considered a winner, but Mariota certainly deserves to be listed here. He finished 12 of 18 for 100 yards passing and added 7 carries for 51 yards on the ground, but the stat line does little to describe how well Mariota played despite being less than 100% and facing one of the best defenses in the NFL. He also had a couple critical drops by receivers on good throws that could have extended drives. Most importantly, his throws were on target and appeared to have plenty of zip. The Titans didn’t ask him to do much with regards to attacking deep down field, but he capably executed the plays that were called. Regardless of Gabbert’s status with the concussion, I’d suspect that Mariota is back under center when the Titans take on the defending champs next week.The respect for Mariota’s gutsy performance was evident in his teammates post game comments. Taylor Lewan called his quarterback a wolf and said he’d follow him anywhere while Ben Jones called Mariota one of the toughest guys that he knows. Getting a healthy — or at least healthy enough — Mariota moving forward is crucial and it sure looks like things moved in the right direction today.The DefenseIt’s hard to single out just one guy from what was an outstanding group effort from the defense. Wesley Woodyard certainly stood out, racking up 12 tackles, 1 sack, 2 tackles for loss, and 1 pass defensed. Jurrell Casey was active once again, picking up his 3rd sack of the season. Harold Landry’s outstanding pass rush on 3rd down of the Jags second to last drive ultimately got the defense off the field and gave the offense a chance to nearly run the clock out.The Jaguars helped out with a few unforced errors, but the Titans defense was outstanding throughout the game. The secondary completely took away the deep passing game that torched the Patriots a week earlier, limiting Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook, and Donte Moncrief to just 10 catches and 74 yards combined. The Titans defense has carried the team the last two weeks while the offense has been banged up. It’s been a while since we’ve seen a defense capable of this kind of shut down performance in Tennessee.Mike VrabelThe Titans rookie head coach is pressing all the right buttons right now. Getting back to back division wins despite the extreme injury circumstances is an impressive start. There is no doubt that they will need the offense to start picking up steam, but the Titans coaching staff has put together winning game plans with the hands they’ve been dealt.Vrabel has talked about a team’s culture being measured by how they respond to adversity and after two weeks it’s clear that the culture surrounding this team is in a good spot. If you listen to quotes from his players it’s pretty clear that this team loves playing for this guy and it is showing on the field.Dane CruikshankCruikshank has been the star of the Titans excellent special teams unit so far this season. Last week he caught a fake punt pass and took it the distance for a touchdown. This week he thwarted the Jags fake punt attempt when he recognized the play, got up field, and forced Jaguars back Corey Grant wide. He didn’t get the tackle, but his play gave LeShaun Sims and Jayon Brown the time they needed to rally to the ball and make the stop short of the first down. His work as a gunner on punt coverage has been excellent as well. Rashaan EvansThe Titans have brought Rashaan Evans along slowly after the rookie linebacker missed much of training camp with a hamstring injury, but the training wheels came off today. Evans got the start inside next to Wesley Woodyard and even though he was only credited with 1 tackle, I thought he was frequently around the ball. The only downside was Evans leaving the game during the second half with an injury. Hopefully it’s just a minor issue and he gets a chance to build on this start next week.LosersTajae Sharpe and Rishard MatthewsSharpe and Matthews had two bad drops on big 3rd down plays during the first quarter that could have extended drives. Matthews finished with just 1 catch for 3 yards while Sharpe was held without a catch. Sharpe has made a few plays this season, including a massive 3rd down catch against the Texans in Week 2, but Matthews has been the invisible man in this passing game. Some of his struggles are almost certainly due to the time he missed in camp with a torn meniscus, but the Titans could really use another threat in the passing game to complement Corey Davis. Jags FansJags fans were pretty cocky heading in to this game. They were coming off a beatdown of the Patriots and hosting a Titans team starting Blaine Gabbert and missing two of their top three tackles. The national media had just spent the entire week gushing over the “new Blake Bortles” and calling the Jags one of the AFC’s elite. A home loss to a team starting Blaine Gabbert was the last thing they expected to see today, but that’s what they got.Furthermore, I was disappointed with the crowd at TIAA Bank Field (or as I call it “Jeff Fisher’s Beach Bungalow”). There were a TON of empty seats today despite it being a big rivalry game with their team coming off an impressive home win. Maybe they should bring the tarps back?The Rest of the AFC SouthThis one is literal. Every team in the division lost this week except for the Titans. The Colts dropped to 1-2 with a close 20-16 road loss to the Eagles. The more interesting loss was the Texans losing their home opener by a score of 27-22 against the previously 0-2 Giants. Houston remains winless on the season and I after to wonder if Bill O’Brien’s seat might be getting a little toasty. It was a great set of results for the Titans who jump in to first place in the division after three weeks of play.Breaking Down Every Marcus Mariota Interception from 2017: #5 (vs BAL) Coming off a bye week and looking for their third consecutive win, the Titans hosted the Baltimore Ravens for a Week 9 match-up with potential playoff ramifications for both teams.In this game , Marcus Mariota threw his 5th interception of the season. If you don’t know how this works by now, I suggest reading the below previous articles:Breaking Down Every Marcus Mariota Interception from of the day, the Titans got the ball back at the start of the fourth quarter with a chance to ice the game away.
Nursing a 16-6 lead with 12:03 left to play, the Titans faced a 3rd-and-4 from their own 40-yard line. What HappenedThe Titans had a chance to essentially wrap up a victory with a score on this drive. Instead, they gave the ball back to the Ravens, and with it, new life in this game. Six plays later, the Ravens cut the lead to 3 with a touchdown. The PlaycallThe Titans come out in a formation very similar to the trips bunch we saw twice in the Houston Texans interceptions, in 11 personnel, but this time, the formation is flipped (likely due to the ball being placed on the opposite hashmarks). This tight formation draws the Ravens defense in close to the line of scrimmage before the snap, signaling the man-to-man coverage Mariota will see as soon as he hikes the ball.Perhaps you’ll recall from Interceptions #2 and #3 that the Texans came out with 7 defenders at or near the line of scrimmage but only rushed four.Here, the Ravens do something similar with 8 guys at or near the line before the snap, and only rush three of them. But by showing 8, they can create confusion along the line. I’m thinking Dean Pees will get along well with Mike Vrabel.The appropriate way to punish a team for loading the box like this is to hit them with a play-action fake and throw it deep. So naturally, the Titans only send one player on anything close to a deep pattern and run everything else within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage. The Titans have a zone-beater Smash-7 to the right between Davis and Matthews. Underneath, they are running a man-beater mesh concept with Decker and Walker. Murray is a dump-off option leaking out to the left. The idea with a combo man/zone-beater is for the quarterback to quickly diagnose the coverage, either pre- or post-snap, and then make his reads based on what he sees. As is to be expected based on the coverage calls, the play is extremely well defended. Since Matthews is the only player running downfield, the safety picks him up in a double-team and that option is easily covered by the Ravens. The mesh concept underneath results in three Ravens following Eric Decker across the field with a shell of players surrounding Delanie Walker, as well.Corey Davis looks like he’s about to pop open against single-coverage, but it takes him too long to complete his route. By the time he has separation, Mariota is already releasing the ball. And DeMarco Murray is not alone as he leaks out of the backfield.What Went WrongThe read progression on this play makes no sense to me. It appears to be a basic right-to-left read - you can see Mariota look first to the outside in Davis’s direction. My guess is the read is concerned with the cornerback’s technique - if he is playing off and backpedaling in Davis’s route stem, Mariota would likely try to hit Davis on the curl. But Davis is met with tight press coverage, so Mariota moves onto Rishard Matthews, who is running downfield in the stem of his corner route.What’s confusing about the read progression is that Mariota starts on Corey Davis and then moves to Rishard Matthews. If this was meant to be a zone-beater Smash-7 concept, Mariota should first read the “high” (Matthews) and then move to the “low” (Davis) if the curl/flat corner drops to defend Matthews. Of course , this entire concept is irrelevant on this particular play because the Ravens are in man coverage.Perhaps that is why the progression moves right to left, but what is strange about it is that Mariota never looks at either of the two players running a man-beater concept across the middle of the field underneath, Eric Decker and Delanie Walker.My assumption is that Mariota saw Matthews running downfield with the defender’s back facing him and simply didn’t see the free safety coming across the field. What Mariota saw at the moment the ball was released from his hand.Unfortunately, Eric Weddle was very ready for the pass that Mariota threw, and was there to easily intercept the ball. It does appear that Rishard Matthews is briefly held, but it may have only slightly impacted his ability to prevent the turnover.Mechanically speaking, Mariota does a nice job with his footwork on this throw with a very clean pocket around him. The decision to throw it, however, was extremely poor.Coach’s CommentsWhile Mularkey wasn’t asked directly about the play and what led to the interception, he did comment on Mariota’s response to the pick.Mariota made a huge mistake on this play, but he did come back after the Ravens score to throw a touchdown pass and re-take a 10-point lead over Baltimore with just 3:58 to play. Responding after an interception was a common theme of Mariota’s throughout the season. The only games in which he didn’t come back on the field and lead his team to a scoring (or even game-winning) drive were against Houston, Pittsburgh, and Arizona. What Mariota Should Have DonePerhaps you’ve noticed by now where Marcus Mariota should have gone with the football.The crossing routes run by Eric Decker and Delanie Walker create enough confusion and spacing that Walker ends up running free. He smartly slows his route as he approaches the middle of the field, aware of the linebacker covering the area to where Delanie’s route will carry him. Rather than run into coverage, Walker wisely sits in the hole just short of the first down marker. Sadly, Mariota did not see him and missed an easy throw that Walker could’ve carried over the line to gain. The biggest concern I have with this interception is that Mariota should’ve known where to go with the ball based purely on the defensive coverage. Although Corey Davis’s route would’ve been better served had he been split out wide to start, overall, the playcall works well to beat whichever coverage, man or zone, the Ravens had decided to run.The Ravens go with man coverage, yet Mariota never looks at the routes that are specifically designed to attack that defense. Further, Mariota should know that he only has one receiver running downfield anywhere near the single-high free safety. If that safety drops at all, why would you test him, especially with a ten-point lead in the fourth quarter? So is Mariota not being coached to read the coverage, or is he simply failing to recognize man vs zone? This is something we’ll explore in the next breakdown...
