The Tennessee Titans have been one of the more surprising (in a good way), teams in the NFL so far this season. Entering today at 4-5 on the season, Mike Mularkey’s crew decided to be aggressive from the opening kick-off against the Green Bay Packers.
The Titans started the game with a surprise on-side kick attempt to no avail as the Packers recovered. However, the Titans forced a three-and-out and after the punt went into the end zone they got the ball at their own 20. Following a penalty for encroachment on Green Bay, it was 1st-and-5 from the 25 and Marcus Mariota handed off to his workhorse back DeMarco Murray, who did the rest.
The touchdown is Murray’s eighth on the ground this season and it gave the Titans a 7-0 lead.
