ITEM ADDED TO CART
Packers defense couldn’t find an answer for Mariota, who showed he can rely on his arm too. Lost 25-47 to a Tennessee team that has largely flown under the radar, but the young Marcus Mariota led offense looks to have really hit its stride.
The moment the Titans got the ball, they never looked back. On their first possession of the day, DeMarco Murray turned in another monster performance 100+ yard performance that began with a 76-yard TD run.
Green Bay was put in a hole early on, but it got much deeper.
Tennessee went on to take advantage of their first three possessions, scoring a touchdown in on each one. Saying the Titans caught the Pack flatfooted would be an understatement, since all three of those unanswered TDs came before the end of the first quarter.
It seemed like Murray would be giving the Pack fits all day, but it was Mariota who lit really lit up Green Bay’s defense. Proving he doesn’t need to rely on his feet by completing 19 of 26 passes for 295 yards and 4 TDs.
Meanwhile, the Packers continue to deal with their tumultuous running back situation.
James Starks returned to action for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus he suffered back in in Week 5 against the Giants. Mike McCarthy wasn’t able to get a long look at Starks after his offense feel behind behind so early in game.
Green Bay will have more than their share of areas to address after their ugly outing in Tennessee drops them to 4-5. The Packers can thank the Redskins – their soon-to-be foes Sunday – for beating the Vikings to put them at five wins, the same as Lions.Bad as this loss may have been, the Pack has plenty of time to right the ship and retake the NFC North.
