Update Coming Soon! Check out Skem9's future roadmap
The Tennessee Titans’ No. 5 overall pick made his professional debut in Sunday’s 26-16 loss to the Oakland Raiders. Corey Davis didn’t start the game, but he made a big impact and showed flashes of what he’s capable of as a receiver. In a game where the Titans offense struggled, Davis stood out as a playmaker who will be a focal point for the foreseeable future.

Davis could have been our player of the game on the strength of his first career reception alone.

That was one of six catches by Davis, who ended the day with 69 yards. He worked in all three levels of the passing game and was wide open seemingly every time Marcus Mariota looked his way.

The scariest part is this was Davis’ first taste of NFL action. He had a truncated training camp after injuring his hamstring during his first week. He only suited up for the final preseason game but didn’t play at all. This was him learning how to play in the NFL completely on the fly.

Head coach Mike Mularkey indicated during the week they wouldn’t even completely unleash the receiver in this first game. Six catches for 69 yards isn’t bad for a guy who had some training wheels on.

There weren’t a ton of silver linings from this loss for the Titans,Authentic Josh Doctson Jersey, but Davis was certainly one. This won’t be the last time he’s the brightest spot of a Titans offensive performance.

Walters nominates Laurie Daley for vacant Titans coaching job

Gold Coast will decide on a new coach within the next month from a pool of around 15 candidates with the recently fired South Sydney coach Michael Maguire believed to be the favourite to replace Neil Henry.

Walters is expected to re-sign with the QRL at Daley's expense after staging a remarkable comeback in the 2017 Origin series with Queensland's back against the wall as the Blues looked to stage just their second win in 12 years.

The Titans insist their confidence is not shaken by a third straight loss to Oakland in as many seasons, this by the largest margin yet.

Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan said they know they need to finish drives in the end zone. Safety Kevin Byard said they know they need to tackle better, which can be corrected.

Pro Bowl linebacker Brian Orakpo insisted he was disappointed, but not worried with all the playmakers on the roster.
