Titans GM Jon Robinson on The Midday 180: I look at Patriots and Bucs scores given my history with them. Division too. But given link to Rams with first-round pick, certainly an interest there.

Titans GM Jon Robinson on The Midday 180: "It's details with routes" more than lack of speed that is limiting offense. "We think we've got some guys who can run."

Paul Kuharsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Receivers Kendall Wright and Tajae Sharpe will play. Tight end Delanie Walker and linebacker Nate Palmer are questionable. Safety Da'Norris Searcy and corner Cody Riggs are out.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Marcus Mariota had a 3.6 Total QBR against the Raiders on Sunday despite a decent-looking stat line: 17-of-33 for 214 passing yards. But Mariota struggled mightily on third downs, converting first downs on two of his 12 plays (he also was flagged for a false start on a third-and-9 in the red zone, which affected his rating). Looking only at his third-down play, Mariota's QBR was a 1.3.
