Sacramento Kings rookie point guard De’Aaron Fox has a budding rivalry with fellow rookie Lonzo Ball, famously ending Ball’s college career with a win in the NCAA tournament, then saying he wanted to win that game to “shut LaVar Ball up.”
After placing four players on injured reserve Tuesday, the Redskins (4-6) will not even attempt a full practice before the game.
Earlier in the quarter, the Titans squandered a chance to start putting the game away when rookie wide receiver Corey Davis fumbled out of bounds while trying to stick the football over the goal line. The ensuing touchback “allowed (Cincinnati) to stick around,” Woodyard said.
To its credit, Tennessee’s offense rebounded and stuck it to Cincinnati on what proved the game-winning 12-play, 73-yard drive following Green’s touchdown. Mariota accounted for 63 of those yards (passing and rushing combined).
Shaquill Griffin, CB, Seattle Seahawks: Griffin exited the game after being shaken up on the first defensive series of the game while making a tackle. He was replaced by the recently signed Byron Maxwell. Griffin was taken back to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion, and declared doubtful to return.
Pittsburgh defensive end Stephon Tuitt sacks Mariota on third down, forcing a Titans punt.
The Steelers go three-and-out on back-to-back possessions after scoring on their first two drives. The Titans get the ball back on their 29 with just under 10 minutes to play in the half.
Tennessee comes away with no points on the possession. The Titans’ drive stalls following the fourth-down conversion. Kicker Ryan Succop comes on and attempts a 48-yard field goal but his kick is blocked. The Steelers will take over on their 30, leading 10-7.
Mariota completes a third-down pass to Delanie Walker, who comes up just short of the marker. The Titans decide to go for it and convert on the play as Mariota falls forward for a yard.
