They followed that drive with another touchdown, a 14-yard rush by Demarco Murray that put the game away at 24-0. After adding a field goal before the half the Titans were on cruise control with a 27-0 lead headed into the locker room.

Marcus Mariota threw for over 200 yards in the 1st half for the first time in his career and the Titans moved to 4-4 before the 3rd quarter even started.

DeMarco Murray hit the century mark again with 123 yards on the ground while Derrick Henry was a nice compliment adding 60 rushing yards to the team total of 214.
