QB Zach Mettenberger to Start for Tennessee Titans vs. Falcons

QB Zach Mettenberger will make his first start of the season for the Tennessee Titans this Sunday when the team takes on the Atlanta Falcons at Nissan Stadium. Mettenberger will be filling in for regular starter Marcus Mariota, who missed all team practices this week after sustaining a knee injury in last week’s game against the Miami Dolphins. “We’re going to list him as out for this game,” said Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt. “A combination of just missing practice and not quite being there. He’s close, but it’s a combination of those two things. So we decided that was the best way to go this week.” Mettenberger, a sixth round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, started six games for the Titans during his rookie year last season, completing 107 of 179 passes for 1,412 yards, including eight touchdowns. So far this season, he’s registered 1,239 yards, nine touchdowns, and five interceptions. Are you ready to watch the next Tennessee Titans game in person?

“I’m excited for the opportunity,’’ Mettenberger told the press on Friday. “You know, the important thing is we go out there and try and get a team win, and that’s ultimately my job. It doesn’t matter who is out there pulling the trigger. Everyone expects you to win a football game and that is what I’ve been working toward this week, and hopefully we can string together some good drives and put some points on the board.” With a 1-4 record that includes three consecutive losses at home, the Titans are hungry for a win. “I think we’ve been putting our best effort out there every week, we’ve just been shooting ourselves in the foot,” noted Mettenberger. “We’ve got to string together a good clean football game to try to get the win.” Reserve your seat to see the Titans make their next big win at Nissan Stadium.
