One guy that really stood out was Corey Davis.

Corey Davis is developing into the receiver the Titans drafted him to be We talked about this last night on Locked on Titans (listen here) Navy Dion Lewis Jersey , but you have to dig deeper than the stat sheet to look at how good a couple of the individual performances were yesterday. He has turned into the guy the quarterbacks go to when they need a big play. Yes, he only had 2 catches yesterday, but they were both huge.His first catch came yesterday when the Titans were facing a 1st and 20. Marcus Mariota hits Davis about 4 yards down the field. Davis turns it into a first down:His second catch came when the Titans were driving to set up what was ultimately the game winning field goal. Mariota finds Davis across the middle on 3rd and 5. Davis beats A.J. Bouye and then breaks Bouye’s attempt at a tackle to pick up the first down:I understand that just two catches doesn’t make a guy worth the 5th overall pick in the draft, but Davis can continue to build on these performances the sky is the limit for him. Just think about what he can do when the Titans have a healthy quarterback and 2 healthy offensive tackles.RECAP: Titans hold off Texans, 20-17 On a day where the Titans were likely going to struggle offensively, Mike Vrabel dove into his bag of tricks early. After the Titans’ first offensive drive stalled, Tennessee dialed up a fake punt that saw a safety to safety connection for the game’s opening touchdown. It was Kevin Byard taking the short snap and hitting a wide open Dane Cruikshank for a long touchdown to kick things off in Nashville today. The Titans — playing without their top three tackles and quarterback Marcus Mariota — likely knew they would have to steal some points today. This was a bold call to get things rolling. The second drive of the game was a beauty for the Titans. They put it all together, throwing the kitchen sink at the Texans. Derrick Henry found success running out of the wildcat, while Blaine Gabbert completed a couple of short throws to keep the chains moving. Gabbert capped off the drive with a screen pass to Taywan Taylor Youth Dennis Kelly Jersey , who made a defender miss to score. [Image: nike_titans_1142.jpg]
To end the first quarter, the Titans held a 14-0 lead. Just when you thought the Texans were cooking up an answer, Adoree’ Jackson came through for the defense. His first career interception came in the endzone as Deshaun Watson was looking to strike deep. It was a huge play to keep Houston down early on. It wasn’t much longer until the Texans finally did strike, however. Titan-killer DeAndre Hopkins got free in the middle of the field and Watson found him to cut the lead in half, just before the halftime break. A quick three and out for the Titans to open the third quarter had the Texans in position to close the gap. What started as a promising drive ended a Houston punt, following a big sack on an aggressive blitz from Dean Pees.The Titans struggled to get anything done out of the halftime break, but the Texans didn’t have that problem. Houston added a field goal in the third quarter, then added a touchdown on a Watson-Will Fuller bomb on the next drive. Once again, it was Malcolm Butler giving up the deep ball for the Titans. After starting so well http://www.authenticstennesseetitans.com...ern-jersey , the Titans found themselves down 17-14 in the fourth quarter. Finally — aided by a Jadeveon Clowney personal foul (who wasn’t dressed for this one) — the offense showed a pulse. A strike over the middle to Tajae Sharpe put the Titans in field goal range. After the drive stalled, Ryan Succop tied things up at 17-17.Deshaun Watson got the ball back and immediately went to work on a tired defense. He used his legs to convert on third down, then found a wide open Bruce Ellington over the middle to flip the field. However, the Titans stood tall, getting pressure from Harold Landry. They forced a Texans punt, giving Gabbert another chance to take the lead.It was Dion Lewis kicking things off, grabbing 10 yards and a first down to start the drive. It was then Corey Davis on a crosser, picking up another chunk and another first down. The Titans were inching into field goal range, then potential disaster struck. Gabbert saw his pass get batted into the air — then he caught it instead of batting it down. He then tried to throw it again Jonnu Smith Jersey , which is obviously illegal. All that ended up happening was a five yard penalty, however. Corey Davis took a screen on the next play, bringing Tennessee into the redzone with two minutes to play. A couple of Derrick Henry runs force the Texans to use their final timeouts, but Dion Lewis was stuffed on a 3rd and one rush attempt. Ryan Succop drilled his field goal attempt to regain the lead, but left 1:00 on the clock for Watson to go to work.Watson immediately got it to Hopkins at midfield, but lost a lot of time off of the clock in the process. With 17 seconds left on the clock, the Texans ran a bizarre play where Watson ran all of the time off of the clock.Watson’s pass fell incomplete, and the Titans held on 20-17.
