Scout's take: Titans used numbers to slow Saquon Barkley

BY BLAKE BEDDINGFIELD, special correspondent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Scouting notes from the Titans 17-0 win over the Giants at MetLife Stadium....

A promising first drive by the Titans was halted by a Taywan Taylor third-down drop, a missed field goal by Ryan Succop and Derrick Henry being taken out of the game after runs of 10, 6 and 6 yards.TitansFlag

No reason to take Henry out and stop the momentum the run game was creating.

Excellent third-down pass by Marcus Mariota to Corey Davis. Great throw but a very good route and catch by Davis vs. tight coverage by Janoris Jenkins.

A combination of Derrick Henry creating yardage after contact and Mariota converting big passes on third down gave the early lead to the Titans.
