Grades for Titans-Falcons

Here are the top takeaways from Friday night’s Titans-Falcons game, including the highest-graded players for each team.


– Horrible interception aside Marcus Mariota had an assured enough debut completing 7-of-8 passes when not pressured, including one precise long third down completion.

– Second round receiver Dorial Green-Beckham saw a football field for the first time in a while, logging 19 snaps and running 11 routes. He was targeted twice including one completion that showed his upside.

– Toby Johnson didn’t wow us for Georgia but had a solid debut against the Falcons reserve lineman. He plugged the middle manfully and led the team with three defensive stops.

Top 5 graded players:

Phillip Supernaw (+4.3)

Jamon Meredith (+4.0)

Toby Johnson (+2.9)

Derrick Lott (+2.1)

William Poehls (+2.0)


–Tough debut for Grady Jarrett. He was immense in the ACC but struggled in his first competitive NFL action, turning 31 snaps into just a solitary hurry and stop and regularly being swallowed up by double teams.

– If nothing else Sean Renfree made a case for more playing time in his quest to earn a backup job. He threw just one incompletion as T.J. Yates ambled his way to a 53.5 QB rating.

– First round pick Vic Beasley had a quiet debut, featuring on just 10 snaps and not getting much of a chance (four snaps) to show what he could offer rushing the passer.

Top 5 graded players:

Pierce Burton (+2.7)

Kroy Biermann (+1.9)

Julio Jones (+1.8)

Sean Renfree (+1.7)

Nick Williams (+1.5)
