Marcus Mariota has 696 yards passing with 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. 60 of 100 for 60 percent completion and a QBR of 86.9. Little side note. Through week 3 Marcus has 33 attempts a game. 3 more than his previous 2 seasons. And is averaging 4 more yards a game than in 2016. At home Marcus has combined for a total of 45-73 for 481 yards and 61.6 completion percentage. Plus 2 touchdowns with 0 interceptions. Away from home Marcus is 15-27 for 215 yards and 55.6 percent completion. 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
Murray: Murray who was 3rd in rushing last season with 1283 yards rushing has gotten off to a slow start in the first 2 games. But in week 3 he found his groove and shined. Tallying 14 carries for 115 yards and a touchdown. And looked great on his 75 yard run for a touchdown. That puts him at 35 carries for 184 yards and a touchdown through 3 games. Murray has done his best work in the 2nd half of the game gaining 13 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown through 3 games.
Derrick Henry: 33 carries for 171 yards ( 5.2 YPC ) for 1 touchdowns. Which is an improvement on his rookie campaign through the first 3 games. In 2016 Henry was averaging 7 carries a game at 4.5 YPC and 32.7 yards a game. So far in 2017 Henry is averaging 11 carries a game at 5.2 YPC and 57 yards a game. Henry has became a bigger part of this offense like I believed he would be. Henry is at his best inside the redzone tallying 6 carries for 37 yards and 1 touchdown.
Matthews: In 3 games Matthews as 14 catches for 201 yards and 1 touchdown. We all know he wasn’t a big part of the offense this time last season. But he has grown to become Mariotas favorite wide receiver target and someone he trust on 3rd downs.
Walker: Walker is Walker. I have a hard time not putting him as my top overall tight end in the NFL. He just does everything and does it very very well. So far here in 2017 Walker has totaled 15 catches for 168 yards with 0 touchdowns.
OFFENSIVE LINE: The Titans with Mike Mularkey have made it a point to have a strong physical offensive line and Mike and GM Jon Robinson have done just that. Last season Pro Football Focus (PFF) rated the Titans offensive line as the best in the NFL. And they have stayed completely together in 2017. In the first 3 games of the season. The offensive line have allowed just 2 sacks (tied for 1st) and 5 QB hits (2nd best) in the NFL. Tennessee is 2nd in the NFL in rushing with 469 yards. Only behind the Kansas City Chiefs who have 486 yards. Titans are also tied with 3 other teams with 5 rushing touchdowns. And rank 14th in passing yards.
The Tennessee Titans top 5 grades” (According to PFF)
LT Taylor Lewan, 91.1 overall grade
LB Wesley Woodyard, 86.8 overall grade
G Josh Kline, 85.6 overall grade
Edge Brain Orakpo, 84.8 overall grade
S Kevin Byard, 93.0 overall grade
Lewan: Lewan was in the middle of a pile when Seahawks corner Richard Sherman came in late on Marcus Mariota. But he didn’t get to physical. Instead he used his anger and frustration on used it to dominate the player across from him.
According to PFF QB Marcus Mariota tallied a 56.0 overall grade. Largely in part to Marcus missing out on to many routine passes in the game while struggling to take advantage of great pass protection from his offensive line. But made key plays throughout the game.
