The Tennessee Titans have made an interesting start to the 2015 NFL season. Tennessee find themselves languishing with a 1-3 record to open the new campaign, thanks to their incredibly close 14-13 loss to the Buffalo Bills at Nissan Stadium yesterday.
Titans Lose Again
The Titans blew a fourth quarter lead for the second straight game on Sunday, pushing them to a three-game losing streak. Tennessee’s fate was sealed when rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota was intercepted by Stephon Gilmore as the Titans looked to drive up the field.
That pass was intended for wide receiver Kendall Wright, who was furious in the locker room following the game.

When asked if he was the intended target on the interception, Wright said that he couldn’t “remember the last time I was the primary option on anything” and that he doesn’t feel like he’s “relevant at all” in the Titans offense.
“I’m beyond frustrated,” Wright said, according to the Tennessean. “I don’t feel like I’m being able to do what I can do until late in games."
"I feel like I’m a good receiver and I feel like I’ve been open and I can beat the DBs or whoever is [covering] me, but I haven’t really been given the opportunity I’ve been looking for," Wright added.
Wright had three total receptions on Sunday, and was targeted three more times. That isn't a lot at all, but somehow he still had the most passes thrown to him by Mariota of any Titans receiver.
Eight Titans players caught passes on Sunday, none of them got in to the end zone. This needs to be addressed by Tennessee's coaches, and getting the ball into the hands of a playmaker like Wright might be the best way to do it.
