NASHVILLE Jack Conklin Jersey , Tenn. (AP) — Mike Vrabel asked his Tennessee Titans to play physical in their third game in 11 days. With Derrick Henry leading the way with a handful of rushing records, they did just that with a big victory to stay in the AFC playoff chase.Now they get a weekend to rest before their final road trip of the season, and then another short week."They've done everything we asked them to do," Vrabel said Friday on a conference call. "So, it'll be good to get some time off, get some guys healed up. I have to do a good job of managing the schedule, and still getting us ready for the Giants, but trying to get everybody back that we could possibly get back to help us try to win another game." Vrabel didn't have injury updates for any of the Titans hurt in Thursday night's 30-9 rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars.After that call with reporters, ESPN.com reported tight end Jonnu Smith, hurt on Henry's NFL record-tying 99-yard touchdown run, will miss the rest of the season with an injured knee. NFL Network reported right tackle Jack Conklin will miss a few weeks with his own injured knee.Losing Smith would hurt the most. The Titans already lost three-time Pro Bowl tight end Delanie Walker in the season opener, while veteran Dennis Kelly is in line to replace Conklin after coming off the bench Thursday night. Kelly has started nine games for the Titans over the past three seasons.But the Titans are coming off the franchise's best rushing performance in nearly a decade with Henry turning in 238 yards on just 17 carries for the best output in the NFL this season. Henry not only tied Tony Dorsett's 99-yard touchdown run for the longest in NFL history, but he also took the franchise rushing mark from Chris Johnson — set against the Jaguars on Nov. 1, 2009.The Titans ran for 305 yards in that game and finished with 264 yards on Thursday night. That topped their previous best this season by 100 yards and helped Tennessee improve to 5-1 at home.Being able to run effectively in the cold of December certainly can help, and the Titans visit the Giants (4-Cool on Dec. 16 before wrapping up against Washington (6-6) and Indianapolis (6-6) in Nashville.Vrabel said the key will be consistency and running like that each week. Henry will have a chance to help do that after not starting the last four games. Henry now leads the Titans with 712 yards and a career-high nine TDs rushing, averaging 4.9 yards per carry after his record-setting night."His attitude and his preparation has remained consistent," Vrabel said. "That was always good to see. We'll try to keep that going Delanie Walker Jersey , obviously we have to try to keep that going. Just the confidence that it had for everybody on the team (Thursday) night."Henry, who has been as hard on himself as anyone this season, said his concentration is on finishing runs and being efficient and consistent."I haven't been that all year, and that's my main focus from here on out," Henry said.First, some rest after the Titans moved up momentarily to the seventh spot in the AFC, just out of the second wild-card position held by Baltimore. But Tennessee still needs lots of help with four teams still holding tiebreakers, including head-to-head losses.Cornerback Logan Ryan said the Titans are in survive-and-advance mode."Right now, we know what time of year it is, and we're putting all our chips forward and going on to New York next week," Ryan said.Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota: Week 3, 2018 Welcome to “Keeping Up With Marcus Mariota,” where I take a look at Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota’s weekly tape and determine what I saw.Yeah, yeah, I know I predicted the Titans to lose to the Jaguars on Sunday and that didn’t happen. I’m pretty good at willing Tennessee to victories when I pick against them, though, so you’re welcome.What I didn’t expect was Marcus Mariota filling in for a concussed Blaine Gabbert. Mariota LeShaun Sims Jersey , sitting due to a nerve injury in his elbow, suddenly came in and had to quarterback the Titans offense to victory. Mariota’s pedestrian numbers (12 of 18 for 100 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions while putting 51 yards on the ground) suggest he didn’t contribute all that much to the Titans’ 9-6 victory on the road. But truth be told, this is one of those performances where Mariota’s raw stats don’t do him justice, as he was a big reason why Tennessee was able to move to 2-1.For starters, Mariota’s first three passes (His actual third pass, a throwaway in the area of Jonnu Smith, doesn’t count) all came on third downs, and all three of them were dropped.gamepass.nfl.comThis is an accurate third down throw to Rishard Matthews, who has this ball stripped from him before he can get two feet down. So while Matthews is able to avoid a fumble, he provides his quarterback with a costly drop.gamepass.nfl.comTajae Sharpe drops Mariota’s second pass, also on third down. This one is inexcusable, considering Sharpe is uncontested and should have an easy first down falling to the ground. The Titans are forced punt as a result.gamepass.nfl.comIt can be argued that Mariota’s third pass, again on third down, was not an accurate throw, but this is still a play Corey Davis needs to make, as the ball is placed in a spot where only he can get it.Eventually Harold Landry Jersey , Mariota decided to just do everything himself, and managed to convert some key third downs later in the game, such as this run on 3rd and 2. gamepass.nfl.comEventually, Mariota’s receivers managed to haul in some throws in the second half.gamepass.nfl.comThis is a vintage pocket play from Mariota. He recognizes the blind side pressure, moves up the pocket while keeping his eyes up, resets himself and beats the stunt with a crucial pass to Corey Davis to convert the first down. At the time of this play the game was tied a 6-6, and the drive eventually ended with a Ryan Succop field goal that ultimately decided the game for Tennessee.gamepass.nfl.comOn the last drive, Matt LaFleur gets the ball into Mariota’s hands once more with a read option play. While Mariota isn’t quite as good of a runner as Cam Newton, he’s still really good, and I commend LaFleur for using this play at the right time, as #8 goes through a small gap for another third down conversion. This wasn’t a spectacular performance by any means, but Marcus Mariota was huge in this one thanks to his contributions on third down. While he continues to recover from injury, starting 2-1 on the season is massive for the Titans. They get a big test at home with the Eagles coming to visit, which is why their start to the season is critical.To conclude, Mariota had a good performance that was much better than what the box score said of him.
