Christian Hackenberg report card: How'd Jets' QB look vs. Titans?
13 August 2017, 06:08 | Henrietta Morgan
Mariota suits against Jets up for the first time since season ending injury
The Titans could be a team that will surprise after making many solid acquisitions through free agency and the National Football League draft in recent years.
Saturday's matchup will be 15th preseason clash between the Jets and the Titans. No, that's not going to happen in the preseason, but this game wasn't about that. The results don't matter and winning is not the priority. Right now, the Jets are putting their temporary trust in Josh McCown at least until one of the younger QBs emerge. Defensive end Leonard Williams got a sack as the Jets first-team defense allowed only one first down in two drives. He completed 17-of-24 passes for 119 yards and looked confident and comfortable as he played the majority of the game. All in all, considering the lack of talent on the field with Hackenberg, it was an inconclusive game.
TITANS: Quarterback Marcus Mariota took his game to another level in his second year as a pro in 2016, throwing for 26 touchdowns against nine interceptions and notching a 95.6 QB rating.
New offensive coordinator John Morton didn't ask Hackenberg to do too much, a smart way to break him in. The field goal Catanzaro missed tonight, in his first game in a Jets' uniform, was 55 yards, yet his kicking power wasn't to blame.
But there were also mistakes. The good: Hack started 14-for-18 where the only incompletions were three drops and a pass tipped at the line of scrimmage.
Hackenberg's production wasn't great - no points in eight possessions - but you have to grade on a curve when it comes to the former second-round pick. The Jets are 6-8 in the preseason against the Titans.

McCown finished 3-of-4 for 72 yards and the touchdown. McCown showed deep-ball accuracy, hitting Robby Anderson on a 53-yard bomb - something we haven't seen in training camp. Punter Lachlan Edwards, the only punter on the roster, struggled.
Corner Darryl Roberts was burned for a 42-yard gain, and Bryce Petty didn't do much as he played the final quarter and change behind Hackenberg and McCown.
