The Tennessee Titans capitalized on two fumbles and held off a late rally by the Vikings (4-1) to improve their preseason record to 2-2 on Thursday night.
Marcus Mariota hit Harry Douglas on a short crossing route that the receiver was able to turn up field and race 59-yards for the score to give the Titans a quick 7-0 lead. Mariota was 2/3 for 74 yards and a touchdown in one series of action.
Third string quarterback Taylor Heinicke got the start for the Vikings and played the entire game going 27/41 for 279 yards and two touchdowns. Heinicke is hopeful his solid showing was enough to earn him a spot on the 53-man roster.
