Christian Hackenberg shows definite signs of progress in Jets' preseason opener

What to watch for in the New York Jets preseason opener

Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota played his first game since breaking his right leg late last season in a 7-3 loss to the Jets in the preseason opener for both teams on Saturday night.

In his first National Football League game as a no. 1 receiver, Anderson caught three passes for 71 yards in his limited field time.

Hackenberg's production wasn't great - no points in eight possessions - but you have to grade on a curve when it comes to the former second-round pick.

Unlike the Titans, the Jets' quarterback situation is more muddled.

Hackenberg was greeted by a sack on his first snap of the third quarter. Hackenberg was 18 of 25 for 127 yards. Petty finished 2-of-6 for 16 yards and took a hard hit on a sack. Tanney is in a battle to make the team. He had three receptions for 71 yards. The biggest play, of course, was a 53-yard pass from McCown on the Jets' opening drive, setting up Peake for a red zone touchdown.

S&P falls 1.4 pct in safety flight on N. Korea tensions
When Iraq invaded Kuwait 27 years ago this month, the S&P 500 fell 1.1 percent, and was down 9.3 percent 20 days later. Ongoing global glut concerns lingered in oil markets despite a bigger-than-expected draw in USA crude inventories.

As far as rookies go, Taywan Taylor was a bright spot for the Titans.

His two best throws of the night were on his final drive of the night: a 12-yard pass to tight end Jason Vander Laan and a 14-yard pass to Marquess Wilson in the third quarter.

Mariota played for Tennessee's first two offensive series. Henry carried 8 times for 29 yards as the Titans first team offense failed to score a point Saturday night. He finished 10 for 26 for 108 yards including an interception and a fumble. Decker was signed by the Titans in June after he was cut by the Jets in their salary purge. Martin also had a fumble recovery.

By all accounts, Ross Martin is "winning" the kicking competition in camp as Catanzaro misses short field goal attempts with embarrassing frequency.

Titans: Running back DeMarco Murray (hamstring), wide receivers Corey Davis (hamstring) and Mekale McKay, cornerback Demontre Hurst, defensive lineman Karl Klug (ankle) all sat out.
