Rookie quarterback Mac Jones threw two touchdown passes in the win over the Tennessee Titans.
It wasn’t a depleted roster, for example, that was at fault in Week 11 against Houston, when Tannehill telegraphed a pass to Brown in the red zone, throwing an interception that was nearly returned for a touchdown. It wasn’t a depleted roster that was at fault early in the second quarter against the Patriots, when Tannehill overthrew a wide open Rogers near the Patriots’ end zone, a third-down miss that preceded a missed field goal.
The Tennessee Titans can run the ball without Derrick Henry after all. The challenge now is to show that they can hang on to the ball. Led by Dontrell Hilliard and D’Onta Foreman, the Titans had their best rushing performance of the season – one of the best ever under coach Mike Vrabel – with 270 yards against the New England Patriots, who started the day as a top 10 defense against the run.
