The Tennessee Titans haven’t looked good this preseason at all. And while exhibition narratives are rarely a good judge of how a team will perform once Week 1 rolls around, there’s enough for newly minted head coach Mike Vrabel to be a bit concerned over heading into regular-season games.
Tennessee’s offense has mustered a mere 37 points over three preseason games, including just six in their final tuneup against the Steelers in both teams’ third exhibition contest.
Quarterback Marcus Mariota looked shaky in that bout, going 5-of-8 for 43 yards and an interception. The running game never got going and the Titans were 5-of-15 on third-down attempts.
Again, preseason narratives. But still.
Tennessee has some injuries to worry about too, although it will be helpful to get wide receiver Rishard Matthews back into the fray. His presence should allow the Titans offense to get on track again, somewhat.
Still, this is a team that could go in one of a number of different directions this season. But they can’t climb any higher than they are right now until they start to show some offensive fortitude.
