Often times young quarterbacks in the NFL must take advantage of the extended playing time the final Preseason Game typically brings. Not only did Jake get significant time Thursday night, he made sure his performance wouldn’t disappoint, either.

Jake led the Titans to an impressive 32-9 victory over the Saints in New Orleans, connecting on 15 of 17 passes for 132 yards and a touchdown. He also led the team in rushing with 39 yards on 3 carries, including a 22 yard scramble for a touchdown that helped catpult the Titans to a 22-0 halftime lead.

“It was great to get a lot of work,” Jake said. “I thought we played well as a unit. The more snaps I get as a rookie, the better. I can’t wait for the regular season to start so it counts for real.”

For the Preseason, Jake ended with 32 of 49 passing for 316 yards, 2 touchdowns and an interception. He also ran for 64 yards and a touchdown on 8 carries.
