The Tennessee Titans may not play their first preseason game until August 8, but a handful of former Titans shined in Thursday's Hall of Fame Game. Benkert took the Falcons 61 yards in 1:17, hitting running back Brian Hill with a 3-yard touchdown pass. Rypien completed a pass on the play that would have set up a first down and put Denver on the doorstep of the goal-line, but they had to squeak in the end-zone in a more creative way. Lock's seven drives gained 87 total yards, five ended in a punt, (three three-and-outs), one concluded in a fumble and one on downs.
"I was hoping for more, but (I'm) not surprised", Fangio said.
Benkert conducted another impressive series in the third period, going 56 yards in 12 plays to Giorgio Tavecchio's 27-yard field goal for a 10-7 lead. However, he suffered a toe injury in the fourth quarter and did not come back in. He went 19 of 34 for 185 yards.
If you want to check out today's preseason action, the game is televised on your local NBC affiliate, and features play-by-play announcer Al Michaels and color commentator Cris Collinsworth. The 15-yard scoring reception was Winfree's only catch of the game.
"You get your first taste of it, and you just keep wanting more and you want more, and that's how I am right now", Lock said. He rarely impressed and finished 7 of 11 for 34 yards.
The game also marked the first-ever challenge of a pass interference call by a coach.
