In the lone game on Sunday, Tennessee Titans and Also the Pittsburgh Steelers Match at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
The Steelers head into Week 3 of the preseason. They have wins on Chiefs and the Buccaneers. Amid a quarterback struggle, the unit was the most impressive for the Steelers last week. They held that a Kansas City crime in check for only 7 points in a 17-7. Sure, Patrick Mahomes playedbut it isn’t like Chad Henne is utterly horrible. He’s a veteran who knows his way across an NFL crime.
Offensively, I am going to have to admit it was not a wonderful day for anybody. Josh Dobbs threw an interception. That is a mark against him. Dobbs got third-team repetitions last week supporting Rudolph. Rudolph did not do anything but he’d protect the ball passed 77 yards on 10-of-15 passing.
Rudolph certainly has more upside than Dobbs. I believe this really is Rudolph’s job, although That is a quarterback competition. Devlin Hodges has seemed impressive. He is making him difficult about the Steelers to cut. Hodges can find his way.
The Steelers went with Rudolph against the Chiefs because their starting QB in Week 2. Ben Roethlisberger is expected to get the start in this one. It’ll be his first game action after sitting out 2 and Week 1 of the preseason. Since Rudolph obtained first-team reps a week, Dobbs is very likely to get a look behind Roethlisberger. Dobbs is going to need to impress with this chance. The job and another dumb mistake could be Rudolph’s.
There are not any doubts about the quarterback turning in Tennessee. It is one of those clearer decisions to be made in the NFL. While the backup place is followed in by Ryan Tannheill, marcus Mariota is your QB. Former Toledo Rocket and AAF alumni, Logan Woodside, is nicely back and is only trying to grab onto a roster or practice squad. Mariota will be starting Week 1 barring an injury. Knock on wood.

As far as Week 1 is worried, Mariota is easily becoming the nod above Tannehill. Now how Tannehill and how Mariota perform is immaterial. When he struggles, But it’s definitely worth mentioning that Tannehill is going to be breathing the neck of Mariota. Not merely did the Titans acquired Tannehill to function as copy, but it is a means to drive Mariota. He did not function final season was wanted by the Titans.
Mariota was not terrible, where he must lift everyone up around 24, but he is at a point in his career. Than they are, make them players that are better. Mariota passed for 11 touchdowns and 8 interceptions with 357 yards. He must be by now, so that there are not going to be some explanations in 2019.
With respect to this preseason match, the Titans are going to have just two starting quarterbacks playing nearly 3 quarters of play. Tannehill is but he’s got lots of expertise as a QB at Miami.
He’s acted as a starter for more of his career. Tannehill should be in a position to move the ball against copies when he receives the call in this contest. If he doesn’t, then isn’t likely to make his job being overly nervous regarded by Mariota. Tannehill is going to take over in this one from the second-half or near the close of the first-half. By then, the Steelers aren’t going to be needing their defenders out there.
Then on the Steelers’ side, they are going to have Roethlisberger out there to get near a half, and then a quarterback conflict between Dobbs and Rudolph. There’s a good chance that two of these are going to be able to place some drives together.
Combined with Tannehill and Mariota, that is four competent quarterbacks playing tonight. And if Hodges gets mop-up responsibility for the Steelers, he has been playing well in the preseason, too. Having a posted full of 40, there appears to be some solid value on the OVER in this preseason edition of Sunday Night Football at Nashville.
