Confident and rosy-eyed as Josh Allen might be , the Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback understands he was going to take his fair share of lumps this season."Sometimes you need to make those mistakes and you need to learn by trial and error, so that's what I'm doing now," Allen said, when asked about Mariota, as the Bills (1-3) get set to host Tennessee (3-1) on Sunday."We're getting better. I'm learning, I'm growing with every opportunity I get."It might not look that way yet for Allen, whose inconsistencies have been apparent since taking over midway through a 47-3 season-opening loss at Baltimore.After taking one step forward in a 27-6 win at Minnesota, the seventh player selected in the draft took several backward in being sacked seven times during a three-turnover outing (two interceptions and a fumble) in a 22-0 loss at Green Bay last weekend.The 22-year-old remains undeterred of the steep learning curve he faces while overseeing an offense with a patchwork line, a sputtering ground game and a mostly unproven group of receivers."It doesn't scare me," Allen said. "I know where I want to be, and I've got a long way to improve, a long way to grow. And I'm looking forward to the entire process."Mariota might not be a finished product 3陆 years since being selected with the No. 2 pick. And yet he's overcome the challenges of working under his third head coach, Mike Vrabel, and third coordinator, Matt LaFleur, to have the Titans off to their best start since 2013 while coming off a season in which he led Tennessee to its first playoff victory in 14 years.He earned his fourth AFC offensive player of the week honor Wednesday after rallying the Titans from a 17-3 third-quarter deficit for a 26-23 overtime win over the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. Mariota capped his 11th career fourth-quarter/overtime game-winning drive with a 10-yard pass to Corey Davis with 5 seconds remaining.The Titans have won three straight, all by three-point margins Cheap Will Compton Jersey , and Mariota has shaken off a season-opening hand injury to go 42 of 61 for 444 yards passing, with two touchdowns and an interception, along with a TD rushing.The production might not be eye-popping, which led to Mariota shrugging off a question of the Titans playing a boring brand of offense."People can have those opinions. We can't control that," Mariota said. "All we can do is just focus on how we get better every single day, and hopefully continue to win games."PRESSURING ALLENTennessee already has 12 sacks and 48 quarterback pressures with nine Titans having at least one sack. They intend to continue applying pressure against Allen, who has been sacked a league-most 18 times."Every time he comes out there, we got to make sure in the back of his mind he knows it's possible there's going to be a chance he's probably going to be hit," Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey said.STUCK IN NEUTRALThe Bills' once-prominent LeSean McCoy-led running attack has gone nowhere. McCoy, who missed one game with a rib injury, has 21 carries for 85 yards. "The coaches know I want to be involved," McCoy said. "We're just trying to figure it out. It's hard to get the ball a lot when we're getting penalties, we're getting first-and-15s, second-and-20s."Coach Sean McDermott can only sympathize with McCoy, saying: "I can understand why he's frustrated."TRAP GAMEThe Titans remember the previous time they went on the road while sitting atop the AFC South. Last December, they lost consecutive games at Arizona and San Francisco to cost themselves the division title and a home playoff game. "I do remember those, and we never want that to ever happen again DaQuan Jones Jersey ," linebacker Brian Orakpo said.The Bills are the one team with a losing record Tennessee will face through the first two months this season, sandwiched between last week's win against Philadelphia and a visit on Oct. 14 from Baltimore (3-1).INJURIESThe Titans will be without starting safety Kenny Vaccaro (right elbow). So Kendrick Lewis is expected to start alongside All-Pro safety Kevin Byard. The Bills' depth at safety could be tested with starter Micah Hyde's status questionable with a groin injury and backup Rafael Bush nursing a shoulder injury.BAD BILLSTake away a four-quarter stretch spanning the second half of a 31-20 loss to the Chargers and the first half against Minnesota, and Buffalo has been outscored 106-9. The Bills haven't scored a TD in a span of 102 minutes and 14 seconds, since Allen's 1-yard run early in the second quarter against Vikings.AP Pro Football Writer Teresa M. Walker in Nashville, Tennessee, contributed to this report. The Titans are riding a three-game winning streak, and they’re doing so at the right time. With Marcus Mariota gradually getting healthier and feeling more comfortable in Matt LaFleur’s offense, starting off 3-1 in the first quarter of the season is huge for the current leaders of the AFC South.On Sunday, Mariota came through for the Titans with one of his best career performances, completing a nice 69.8 percent of his passes for 344 yards, two touchdowns, a pick, and a rushing touchdown. His efforts pushed Tennessee over the top in overtime against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles 26-23.For this week’s edition of Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota, let’s take a look at what exactly made the fourth-year quarterback silence his of you are familiar with the work I’ve done on Mariota’s pocket movement in the past: His reputation is as a running quarterback when in actuality he’s at his best moving around the pocket. This was certainly highlighted on Sunday.On this 3rd and 7, Mariota is flushed out of the pocket due to blindside pressure, but manages to keep his balance and his eyes downfield.

He cuts back inside the pocket, keeping his composure under pressure , and fires what should be a first down to second-year tight end Jonnu Smith. Instead, the ball is dropped—which was a common theme on Sunday—but Mariota’s pocket discipline and ability to keep the play alive are duly noted and the past I’ve also compared Mariota’s style of passing to that of Tom Brady and Philip Rivers: Both quarterbacks process the field extremely quickly and have the ball out of their hands in the blink of an eye. Mariota plays similarly.Here, Mariota showcases his ability to quickly cycle through his progressions. His first read isn’t open, so he gets through the rest of his progressions in a flash before finding an open Corey Davis—who had a massive game—on the left sideline. That Mariota is able to keep his composure despite the presence of the edge rusher on the near side shows that he doesn’t anticipate pressure and plays calmly in spite of a 3rd and short, Mariota once again keeps his composure in order to convert a first down, this time doing it against interior pressure. He recognizes the rush in time as he glides past it while resetting his feet and putting this ball in a perfect position to Corey Davis. So not only is the pocket movement beautiful, but the ball placement is excellent, allowing Davis an opportunity to get yards after the catch after converting the first down.That’s another thing: The connection between Marcus Mariota and Corey Davis was something that was never realized until Sunday, when Davis rolled for nine catches for 161 yards and the game winning’s not too much to say about this rainbow to Davis, but it shows how accurate Mariota has become as a downfield passer (he was one of the more accurate deep passers in the 2017-18 Deep Ball Project). The trajectory of this ball is sublime and it’s dropped right into Davis’ breadbasket., the Titans were able to pull this win off despite five drops from the receivers. None proved more near costly than this drop from Darius Jennings on another rainbow from Mariota. Fortunately, Tennessee was able to eventually score on this anxiety inducing drive, which included three fourth down conversions—one of which was aided by a defensive pass interference initially looks like awful coverage from safety Corey Graham, and it is as it allows Taiwan Taylor a nice, wide open spot to convert a 4th and 15 in overtime.From another angle, however, it would seem that Graham became the latest victim of Mariota’s eye you look a little closely Cheap Derrick Henry Jersey , you’ll see that where Mariota is looking as he sets to fire the ball isn’t where he’s actually firing the ball. His eyes keep Graham in check, exploiting him and fitting this one in on the sideline to Taylor for a massive fourth down conversion. This is another reason I say that Mariota is at his best as a pocket passer: He’s one of the best quarterbacks at manipulating the secondary with his eyes, and under Matt LaFleur it seems it’s becoming more and more, Mariota was able to throw the game winning touchdown to—who else—Davis to give the Titans a 3-1 start to the season.Beyond Mike Vrabel’s aggressive mindset on fourth downs in overtime to play for the win and Matt LaFleur’s ability to give his quarterback a scheme that actually makes sense, Marcus Mariota was the most comfortable he’s been all season, maybe in the last two years. His interception was a bad throw, but he was otherwise fantastic on the day, constantly making precise passes and pocket adjustments under pressure.The receiving corps is still a concern, but Davis’ big day was a nice sign, so hopefully he’ll be able to continue being reliable for Mariota. Still, with LaFleur at the helm and Vrabel doing nice work in his first four games as head coach, Mariota easily has the best surrounding cast he’s ever had. And as he’s getting healthier and going into Week 5 coming off a phenomenal performance, Titans fans definitely have to be pleased at the start to the season.
