In the Tennessee Titans’ 24-17 victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 3, there were some positives signs from players. On offense, the Titans looked very good from their starters to their backups. The Titans did have a bit of trouble stopping the Falcons’ first-team offense, as Matt Ryan looked to be in regular season form.

Antonio Andrews provided the Titans’ offense with one of their team's two big plays. Late in the fourth quarter to ice the game, Andrews ripped off a 47-yard run to assure the Titans’ victory. He finished with three carries for 56 yards, all coming on the final possession.

Rookie running back Bishop Sankey was quiet for most of the game, but when it came to crunch time, he got it done. He ran for 44 yards on 16 carries, which is just 2.8 yards a carry, but he did deliver the game-winning touchdown for his team on a three-yard dash with just over five minutes left in the game.

Rookie, Zack Mettenberger played well with the backups, and was a big part of the Titans winning the game. Mettenberger helped lead the Titans on the game-winning 74-yard drive in the fourth quarter. He finished throwing for 148 yards on 11-for-19 passing, and seems to have some upside.

Titans wide receiver Nate Washington stood out from the rest during the win in Week 3. He had a team-high 94 yards receiving to go along with a touchdown catch. The touchdown catch from Washington was the best play of the game for the Titans, as it was a 63-yard score.

Jake Locker looked very impressive in the Week 3 victory. He threw for 188 yards on 12-for-17 passing with a touchdown. Locker is coming off of foot surgery, so him gaining confidence and playing well in the preseason is a good sign for the Titans.
