Again, though, it’s still preseason, and none of this will matter unless

Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt wrecked the Titans’ offensive line last night Nashville is currently getting worked over the Titans’ first team offense looking pretty sloppy against the Steelers—who defeated Tennessee 16-6—last night , and yeah it was bad. Preseason exists so players can get back in a groove and shake off the rust, not play like superstars every game.With that said, the first team offensive line struggled. In particular, Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt played dominant against Tennessee, racking up the pressures on Marcus Mariota and sacking him once. Entering his fifth season in the league, Tuitt is only 25 years old Tennessee Titans T-Shirt , which means he has yet to reach his ceiling while also being a stud young pass rusher.Keeping this in mind, let’s look at what exactly Tuitt had Tennessee’s number last isn’t even close. We knew going into the season that the Titans had issues at the guard spots, and right guard Josh Kline gets bulldozed by Tuitt on the offense’s very first play. He also makes mince meat out of Derrick Henry, also blocking on the play, as he nearly sacks Mariota. The quarterback was able to get the ball to Tajae Sharpe, Henry once again is assigned to block Tuitt, but this time he’s all alone. Henry’s blocking on this play is pretty bad, so much so that it almost looks like a mismatch. Tuitt pushes Henry aside and brings Mariota down as a, Henry is not blocking Tuitt here. Instead Tennessee Titans Hats , it’s the left tackle Taylor Lewan. Like the others that came before him, Lewan gets owned by Tuitt, who counters Lewan’s hands with his own and executes the Dwayne Freeney/Everson Griffen-esque spin move for great results. He’s able to apply pressure on Mariota, who gets the ball out, but way too high for Corey Davis.Stephon Tuitt should be a massive piece for the Steelers’ defensive line this season. He’s a powerful, athletic pass rusher that’s only getting better here on out. Meanwhile, the Titans’ offensive line clearly has work to do. Though, then again, it is the preseason.Titans vs. Buccaneers time Tennessee Titans Hoodie , TV schedule, odds, streaming, announcers and more This should be an interesting game. These 2 teams will be really familiar with each other after spending two days this week practicing against each other. The practices were pretty clean without any big fights. The game, however, could end up being a little bit chippy.We should see more from the starting offense and defense in this game. There haven’t been any indications on how much yet, but I would guess they both get at least the first quarter. The biggest thing I will be looking for is to see Marcus Mariota and the offense build on what they did on their one possession last week. The Bucs aren’t great in the secondary, but they are pretty good at linebacker and up front. This will be a good test for them.The defense will also get a good challenge from the Tampa offense. We saw what Mike Evans is capable of in the two days of practice, but the defensive backs responded pretty well in day 2. I can’t wait to see how the battle between Evans and Malcolm Butler shapes up on Saturday night.Here is everything you need to know about watching the Titans home preseason opener:TV ScheduleDate: Saturday Cheap Customized Tennessee Titans Jerseys , August 18, 2018Time: 7:00 PM CTChannel: WKRN Channel 2Announcers: Dan Hellie, Charles Davis and Cory CurtisLocation: Nissan Stadium | Nashville, TNRadio: 104.5 The Zone | Full listings hereOnline Streaming: NFL Game Pass (Free 7-Day Trial)Odds: Titans -3
