Marcus Mariota started his Wednesday presser by apologizing to reporters in Arizona for his behavior during last Sunday's press conference. Mariota said Sunday he was "pissed off" with his performance in the 12-7 loss to the Cardinals. He mentioned his mom scolded him about it.

DeMarco Murray saw 47 of Titans' offensive 60 snaps (78%) compared to Derrick Henry's 13 reps (22%). We saw a couple of weeks of good balance then back to this. Henry did get the ball on eight of his 13 plays. Murray targeted/got the ball on 14 of his 47.

Seth Walder ESPN Analytics 

The Jaguars are a much better team (in FPI's mind) than the Titans and hold a one-game lead in the standings. Therefore they are solid favorites to win the AFC South. Tennessee has a 22.5% chance to win the division still, though.

I've never seen Marcus Mariota as upset as he was in his press conference after Titans loss. Visibly angry and short. He said he was "pissed off." All around bad day day for Titans.

Marcus Mariota: "Frustration is an understatement... I've got to stop hurting this team."

Titans last play of the game was a throw to CB Adoree' Jackson. He said they hadn't practiced the play before. They just told him his route. Pass went his way. Interesting and sort of a statement toward trust level of WR core overall.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN Staff Writer 

Taylor Lewan said he has back spasms. He'll have a MRI, but he doesn't anticipate it being a long-term issue. He says he woke up sore and with tightness. He was apologized in locker room to teammates for not finishing the game.

Marcus Mariota suffered a knee injury early in the game, per Mike Mularkey. He played through it.

Taylor Lewan is out with a back injury. Dennis Kelly is the Titans LT for the rest of the day.
