Panthers are thin enough at safety, so good sign that Dezmen Southward walked off the field after grabbing his back in pain on awkward tackle.

Rookie Harrison Butker making his case for the placekicking job. He just added a 46-yard field goal to the 51-yarder he had in the preseason opener.

Panthers second team defense doesn't give Titans much of a challenge on 14-play, 75-yard drive capped by a walk-in touchdown run on fourth and goal from the 1. Ron Rivera sticking with first team offense and Christian McCaffrey makes the Titans pay with a 38-yard catch and run. This kid can fly.

Derrick Henry getting a heavy load today with DeMarco Murray out. It's been a grind - 16 carries for 36 yards - but he notched two touchdowns including one for 17 yards around left corner.

Christian McCaffrey made Cam Newton dance on the sideline with that 17-yard touchdown run to the right. The first touchdown for the Panthers rookie, albeit it is the preseason. Won't be his last of 2017.

Offensive line opened a huge hole for Christian McCaffrey on the last play. The first-round pick took advantage with a 13-yard run. You could see his explosiveness that makes him a threat to go all the way every time he touches the ball. Even on plays up the middle.

Panthers get a first down and no surprise it comes on a catch by Kelvin Benjamin, who shows some attitude at the end of the play. Receivers coach Lance Taylor told me this past week that Benjamin reported for training camp with an attitude to dominate.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers coach Ron Rivera wasn't happy with his offense in Thursday's joint practice. He can't be happy with it now with two turnovers on three possessions after that interception. He's probably not thrilled with the defense either after that 17-yard touchdown run that gave the Titans a 17-0 lead.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Ooo wee, Mike Mularkey and Dick LeBeau are going to be smiling tonight. Titans get INT, 2nd turnover of 1st Q, thanks to Jayon Brown and Justin Staples. On the next play, Derrick Henry cruises to rushing TD. Titans look good, up 17-0 on Panthers.

Defensive end Julius Peppers shows at 37 he can still get after a quarterback. Panthers defense finally forced a punt, but Damiere Byrd didn't do the offense any favors fielding that punt inside the 10.

19 days until the NFL season: One record Bill Belichick doesn't have is most seasons making the playoffs, as Don Shula holds that record with 19. Belichick stands at 15.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Great Titans start. Splash defensive plays could lift this Titans team to even higher heights. Logan Ryan forced a Devin Funchess fumble, Kevin Byard scoops it up, and it leads to Mariota to Delanie Walker TD.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers corner Daryl Worley and safety Mike Adams stared at each other after that Tennessee touchdown catch. Obvious miscommunication on coverage in secondary. Start of the game couldn't have gone much worse offensively and defensively for Caroline as Titans take a 10-0 lead.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

The Panthers wanted to get wide receiver Devin Funchess more involved early after having only one catch in the preseason opener, First play goes to Funchess and he fumbles.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Panthers second-year cornerback James Bradberry showed with that pass breakup in the red zone the type of plays he made at Wofford to get him the nod as the training camp defensive MVP.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Titans offense responds to challenge from Mike Mularkey with a strong 11-play, 59 yard opening drive. Marcus Mariota contributed on all 59 yards (4-5 passing for 50 yards, 1 rush for 9 yards). Ended with a FG after stalling out in red zone.

David Newton ESPN Staff Writer 

Titans having their way with the Panthers' defense on opening drive. Two big pass completions for first downs so far.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

DeMarco Murray will not play in today'sTitans preseason game vs Panthers. He had been battling a hamstring injury, but he got a couple of full days of practice in and Mike Mularkey said he anticipated him playing. Derrick Henry starts.

Cameron Wolfe ESPN 

Jurrell Casey and Wesley Woodyard raised their right fists at the end of national anthem like last season. DaQuan Jones did not.
