New York, NY – The league officially kicked off tonight with Week 1 of the pre-sesason. Now now… before you lament that the pre-season football is a sham of players not fit for a roster and becomes less and less relevant each year…. stick with me: Tennessee Titans at New York Jets was a SHOW.

Where else could you get backup QB Tim Boyle throwing for 214 yards and five (Count them! FIVE!) touchdowns on just 8 completions? What about seeing rookie WR Lamar Wilkins blaze past defenses for 157 yards receiving and two touchdowns on just…. two receptions. No where. No where but New York on a sleepy night where the stars took the second half off. And the second quarter. And probably most of the first considering Marcus Mariota, your league MVP last year went a whopping three for seven and added two interceptions.

The Titans offensive stars weren’t ready for football and don’t care if you as a fan were or not. Luckily, Boyle was and the Titans defense that antagonized the Jets offense to the tune of six interceptions and four sacks. Final score, Titans 43 to Jets 21.

Can you suffer through three more of these?

Notable stats of the night:

  • Rookie HB Morgan Middlebrooks lead Tennessee in rushing attempts at 11 for 60 yards. This is a solid showing by the presumed backup to Derrick Henry.
  • WR Tajae Sharpe, a free agent at the end of last year from the Titans squad whom was brought back to the team, settled for a paltry 23 yards on four receptions….. but three touchdowns.
  • Coming off last years success of keeping the QB clean, the Titans offense gave up zero sacks in this competition against a fearsome Jets defense.
