GREEN BAY Qadree Ollison Jersey , Wis. — installing yet another offensive system for the Tennessee Titans.Maybe Mike Vrabel will stick around for a while for Tennessee.More Packers coveragePhotos of the Week: 7/21/19 – 7/27/19Packers rookie Gary’s biggest critic is himselfTop Tweets: Former Badger TJ Watt has impressive four-year transformationPHOTOS: 2019 Green Bay Packers training campPackers’ Rodgers, LaFleur ironing out offense, building chemistryThe Titans had a memorable opening series in Vrabel’s preseason debut as coach before the Packers pulled away in a matchup of the backups for a 31-17 win on Thursday night.“It was cool. I love this team, I do. I love these guys,” Vrabel said about first time on the sideline leading the Titans.Mariota was 2 of 3 for 42 yards with a 4-yard scoring pass to Darius Jennings on the opening drive of Mike Vrabel’s first preseason game as Titans coach. Mariota also had one carry for 7 yards before leaving after the nine-play series.It was a nice, if brief, start for Mariota. He’s picking up a new scheme under his third head coach in four seasons.“I thought we got into rhythm. We were able to go down and score a touchdown, which is always good. And hopefully we can just continue to build off of that,” Mariota said.Packers receiver Davante Adams needed just one series to show he was in midseason form before joining starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and many other Packers starters on the sideline.But backup Brett Hundley showed glimpses of improvement under center Marquise Brown Jersey , going 9 of 14 for 108 yards and an 8-yard score to running back Jamaal Williams on the drive after Tennessee’s score.Hundley did his best impression of Rodgers by hitting Adams in stride down the left sideline for a 48-yard completion. The Packers’ No. 1 receiver had a step on new Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler before getting pushed out at the 3, setting up Williams’ score two plays later.“I thought he had a couple drives, obviously the big play, and that’s what this game is all about,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “You’ve got to hit your big plays.”Hundley also threw an interception. But It was a promising outing overall for him after the Packers struggled to move the ball through the air when Hundley was under center while Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone in 2017.“I think for me this year, the anticipation, it’s the understanding, it’s the game slowing down, so things are a lot easier http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authe...ferguson-jersey ,” Hundley said.KIZER’S NIGHTHundley, who is competing with DeShone Kizer for the backup job, got the start and played well into the second quarter. Kizer went 9 of 18 for 134 yards, hitting rookie Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 51-yard gain to the Titans 11 in the third quarter.TITANS SECONDARYVeteran Kenny Vaccaro started alongside All-Pro Kevin Byard at safety and had one tackle after playing into the second quarter. Formerly of the Saints, Vaccaro signed on Saturday after the Titans lost starter Johnathan Cyprien last week to a torn left ACL.“He’s come in and really focused on learning his job, becoming a good teammate, practicing hard,” Vrabel said about Vaccaro.QUOTABLE“Really what we wanted to accomplish as a football team was establish our play style, and secondly was just try to create as many opportunities as we possibly could for our players.” — McCarthy.INJURIESTitans: WR Corey Davis dressed and warmed up but did not play. The Titans’ top wideout did not practice Monday or Tuesday after leaving practice early Saturday. … S Dane Cruikshank (left shoulder) walked off after landing hard on the turf while trying to recover Quentin Rollins’ fumble on a punt return.Packers: S Jermaine Whitehead (back) left in the second quarter. S Josh Jones walked back to the locker room in the third quarter to be evaluated for a concussion. … WR Randall Cobb (ankle) and DL Mike Daniels (quad) were among 18 Packers who did not dress.NATIONAL ANTHEMThere were no apparent displays of protest by players on either team during the national anthem.UP NEXTTitans: Host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Aug. 18.Packers: Host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Aug. 16. ATLANTA (AP)The Atlanta Falcons enter the offseason forced to address this startling new reality: Defense is the team’s new strength. That means there are new concerns on offense. Only one year after Atlanta led the league in scoring in its 2016 Super Bowl season Miles Boykin Jersey , the offense was no better than middling in the league. It was appropriate that a season of regression on offense – and improvement on defense – ended with a scoreless second half in a 15-10 divisional round playoff loss at Philadelphia on Saturday. First-year offensive coordinator Steve Sarkasian was the easy target to blame for Atlanta’s sharp decline in scoring , but there were other problems. Running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman each missed time with concussions. Left guard Andy Levitre was placed on injured reserve before a wild-card win over the Rams with a triceps injury. Quarterback Matt Ryan couldn’t repeat his 2016 MVP production. Julio Jones was held to only three touchdown catches – his low total since having two in 2013, when he played only five games. He couldn’t catch a last-chance, fourth down pass in the end zone from the Eagles 2. The Falcons tumbled from first to 15th in scoring. ”I think that’s certainly something that we have to look at and evaluate this offseason,” Ryan said. ”There were too many times that we were a little bit inconsistent.” While the core of the defense is young, the window is closing for the leaders of the offense. Ryan will be 33 next season – the last year on his six-year, $103.75 million contract. Jones will be 29. Recent history provides a reason to give Sarkasian another season with the offense. There was much talk that Ryan and Kyle Shanahan were not on the same page in Shanahan’s first year leading the offense in 2015, and Shanahan then won praise when the Falcons led the league with 33.8 points per game in 2016. The turnaround helped Shanahan land a job as San Francisco’s head coach. Jones noted the Falcons had ”new pieces” this season, including Sarkasian. ”Everybody has to be on the same page and it takes time http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/chea...vage-jr.-jersey ,” Jones said. ”It takes more than one year. … We are a much better offense than we showed for sure. That is just on us, on all of us.” Here are some things to know about the Falcons following their 11-7 season: FREE AGENCY: Quinn and general manager Thomas Dimitroff are expected to talk on Wednesday about their offseason plans. Decisions must be made on attempts to re-sign such key free agents as defensive tackle Dontari Poe, defensive end Adrian Clayborn and kicker Matt Bryant. Ben Garland, who took over for Levitre at left guard, and wide receiver Taylor Gabriel also are set to enter free agency, as is return specialist Andre Roberts and defensive tackle Courtney Upshaw. YOUNG D: Linebackers Deion Jones and DeVondre Campbell and safety Keanu Neal were the leaders of a defense which finished in the top 10 in scoring and total yards for the first time since Atlanta’s 1998 Super Bowl season. Those three players, as well as 2016 NFL sacks leader Vic Beasley Jr. and rookie Takkarist McKinley, who had sacks in both playoff games, were drafted following Quinn’s arrival in 2015. WIN-WIN FOR QUINN: Sure http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authe...ice-hill-jersey , Atlanta again fell short of its first Super Bowl championship, but there was one postseason first for the franchise. Quinn is the first Atlanta coach to win at least one playoff game in back-to-back seasons. He is 32-21 in three seasons, including the playoffs. FREEMAN MAY FACE SURGERY: Freeman told ESPN.com he finished the season with a sprained knee. He had 10 carries for only 7 yards against the Eagles despite sprained posterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his right knee. He was on the injury report with a knee injury before each playoff game but the details of the injury were not known. He said he didn’t know if surgery would be needed. STILL KICKING: The 42-year-old Bryant was good on each of his five field goals in the postseason after making 34 of 39 in the regular season. He is 12 for 12 in the postseason since joining the Falcons in 2009. —
