Panthers to take on Tennessee Titans in second preseason game

  • Tennessee Titans look better, but running game sputters vs. Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers visits the Tennessee Titans for an intense football action game in the second week of the 2017 NFL preseason on Saturday, August 19, 2017 at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee. And while it certainly won't be satisfied with a 34-27 loss to the Titans on Saturday, Carolina should be encouraged by what it saw out of its ball carriers. Two plays later, the 5-foot-11, 205-pound back bounced a run to the outside and scored his first professional touchdown from 17 yards out.

Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota returned to the gridiron last week in the team's preseason opener. The former OR star played for the first time since injuring his right fibula back in December 2016. First-round pick Corey Davis and newly acquired Eric Decker won't play on Saturday as the wide receivers are recovering from injuries.

The final decision was made after Newton had his surgically repaired shoulder re-evaluated Friday.

Backup Derek Anderson started against the Titans, and he was expected to be followed by Joe Webb and Garrett Gilbert.




Newton sat out team drills during the Panthers' joint practices with the Titans this week, so news that he won't play in Saturday's game is more of the same.

On a 3rd-and-2 from the Titans' 41-yard line, McCaffrey took his first handoff straight up the middle for 13 yards.

Now, Panthers fans are letting the team and everybody else in the world know how exactly how they feel about it on social media. Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo had a sack, and rookie linebacker Jayon Brown forced Chris Manhertz to fumble.
