After the penalty, Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw an incomplete pass on the ensuing third down. Tennessee was forced to punt while trailing 10-0 in the opening quarter.


Critical mistake,” Vrabel 说过. “That’s absolutely nothing that we coach or teach. 所以, that would fall into the category of doing dumb st that hurts the team, right there in bold letters. It goes from third-and-1 to third-and-16.

The Cardinals rolled to a dominating 38-13 victory over Tennessee. Jones finished with three receptions for 29 yards in the loss. A seven-time Pro Bowler, Jones was acquired by the Titans in an offseason trade with the Atlanta Falcons.
