NASHVILLE Rex Burkhead Jersey , Tenn. (AP) — Marcus Mariota jumped into the air and flipped over Patriots cornerback Duron Harmon into the end zone for a 2-point conversion.In a preseason game nearly eight months after the Titans quarterback couldn’t play in Tennessee’s regular-season finale because of nerve injuries. Mariota scored, then went to the bench for an earful from teammates.“They told me not to do it again,” Mariota said.Article continues below ...Rookie Jarrett Stidham rallied the New England Patriots to a 22-17 victory over the Titans on Saturday night, throwing a 23-yard touchdown pass to Damoun Patterson with 4:12 left to cap another big performance off the bench.Stidham picked up where he left off in his previous trip to Nissan Stadium. Stidham had five TD passes here helping Auburn rout Purdue in the Music City Bowl last December. This time the rookie was 14 of 19 for 193 yards helping the Patriots (2-0) come back from a 17-8 halftime deficit showing why New England drafted him in the fourth round in April.“Stidham has a good arm,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. “I think he throws the ball accurately. I think he has shown that all the way through from Baylor to Auburn to his pro day and his spring workouts, so I do really think that has been the issue.”Two days of practices against the Titans was enough for Belichick to let Tom Brady watch a second straight exhibition game with New England’s options at wide receiver thin because of injuries.Mariota started for the Titans (1-1) and shook off a pair of three-and-outs before his best drive this preseason. He capped a 10-play, 87-yard drive with an 11-yard TD pass to his favorite target, three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker, who broke his right ankle in the 2018 season opener.Coach Mike Vrabel let Mariota go for 2 against his old team. Mariota looked to throw, then ran to the end zone before going into the air and flipping over Harmon for an 8-0 lead. Mariota was 6 of 9 for 63 yards passing.“After he got in Womens Donald Trump Jersey , I went up to him, and I was like, ‘Bruh . be careful,'” Walker said.Brian Hoyer’s first offensive series ended quickly. Logan Ryan, the former Patriots cornerback, stepped in front of receiver Braxton Berrios for an interception. Hoyer was 6 of 8 for 55 yards. Stidham bounced back after his first play ended up in a safety after a holding penalty on the Patriots.“He performed well,” Patriots receiver Dontrelle Inman said of Stidham. “He’s a young kid and has a lot to learn. But he’s picking up things well in this league.”Brandon Bolden and Nick Brossette each ran for a TD for the Patriots.Ryan Tannehill, added in a trade from Miami in March to upgrade the Titans’ backup quarterback, was 7 of 11 for 84 yards with a TD pass and a sack. Logan Woodside took over just before halftime and finished the game.WHO’S AT RECEIVERJulian Edelman didn’t play as he recovers from an injured thumb, and neither did Phillip Dorsett http://www.patriotslockerroom.com/authentic-jordan-richards-jersey , N’Keal Harry — the Patriots’ first-round draft pick nor Cameron Meredith. The Patriots started Inman and rookie Gunner Olszewski, an undrafted free agent from Division II Bemidji State.JOSH GORDONThe receiver can rejoin the Patriots on Sunday after the NFL conditionally reinstated the receiver Friday night after suspending him indefinitely in December 2018 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Belichick issued a statement Saturday before kickoff that Gordon’s situation has been a league matter. He declined to comment after the game when asked if the Patriots would get a roster exemption for Gordon.“When Josh returns to our program, we will evaluate the entire situation and do what we feel is best for Josh and the team,” Belichick said in his statement.FLIPPING TITANSMariota wasn’t the only member of the Titans to flip into the end zone. Jeremy McNichols flipped into the end zone after catching a swing pass and going 15 yards. Mariota gave McNichols’ flip a higher grade than his own.INJURIESPatriots LB Shilique Calhoun was taken to the sideline medical tent with a right leg injury. Patriots DE Derek Rivers also hurt a right leg and went to the locker room.UP NEXTPatriots: Host Carolina on Thursday night.Titans: Host Pittsburgh on Aug. 25. There is no dethroning Bill Belichick."Coming off a loss in Super Bowl 52, the New England Patriots saw numerous key contributors depart via last year’s free agency: Nate Solder, Danny Amendola, Dion Lewis and Malcolm Butler were among those leaving the team to join greener pastures elsewhere. The Patriots train, however, kept rolling — first to another division title, then to the playoffs Stephon Gilmore Jersey , and then finally to the organization’s third Super Bowl victory in the last five years.Constructing this machine was once again de facto general manager Bill Belichick, and he did so in masterful fashion and despite all the turnover his club experienced. Even though the Patriots lost some serious talent, Belichick found viable replacements: from left tackle Trent Brown to rookie running back Sony Michel to cornerback acquisitions Jason McCourty and J.C. Jackson — New England’s roster remained deep and talented.In the end, this allowed Belichick and the Patriots to reign supreme once more. It is therefore no surprise to see him receive a familiar honor: just like he did the last five offseasons, Rotoworld’s Patrick Daugherty ranked the future Hall of Famer as the best GM in pro football — ahead of upstarts like the Philadelphia Eagles’ Howie Roseman (#2), the Los Angeles Rams’ Les Snead (#4), or the Indianapolis Colts’ Chris Ballard (#5), and veterans such as Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert (#3).“How did Bill Belichick celebrate his sixth Super Bowl victory as head coach? By letting his left tackle and top pass rusher walk in free agency,” Daugherty writes in his rationale explaining Belichick again coming out on top in his rankings. “Neither time nor winning have softened Belichick’s heart. He continues to do the things no other coach or general manager will do.”“Belichick scours all available avenues for talent, playing the longest Womens Montee Ball Jersey , most patient game,” concludes Daugherty. “He is completely unbeholden to sentiment. This may not be a recommended personality trait in a normal human being, but Belichick has never pretended to be normal. The only game he plays is on the field. The rest is unrelenting logic. Perhaps that leaves you cold. It also keeps the trophy case warm.”Belichick is, of course, the most valuable asset in all of football and 2018 proved it once again. With other teams investing in the passing game on both sides of the football, he modeled his team to be an identity-shifting hybrid on both offense and defense — one that was able to outgun the high-flying Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC title game, two weeks before stifling an equally productive Rams team in Super Bowl 53.Even though last season saw some of the league’s younger general managers create power house teams, Belichick again showed why he is the master after all and in a class of his own.
