Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 17 vs IND (18 / 29 / 165 / 1 / 2 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Blaine Gabbert started in place of the injured Marcus Mariota and was entirely ineffective at leading the Titans offense. He completed just 18 of 29 attempts as Gabbert either threw into heavy coverage or was off target in many of his incompletions. When Gabbert did find his receivers, they were typically near the line of scrimmage as he rarely pushed the ball downfield outside of a couple passes to Corey Davis. His one touchdown pass went to Luke Stocker on a well-designed play that faked the entire Colts defense one way while Stocker was left wide open to easily run in for a touchdown from the short reception. Gabbert would throw a back-breaking interception near midfield in the fourth quarter, basically throwing right to defender Kenny Moore who made the easy pick who returned it into Titans territory. His second interception came shortly afterward as Gabbert threw yet another ball behind his receiver with Darius Leonard making the easy interception to close this game out.
2018 Week 16 vs WAS (7 / 11 / 101 / 1 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Blaine Gabbert was forced into action just before halftime in relief of the injured Marcus Mariota. Gabbert ended up playing his best half of football this season as he did enough to keep the Titans in the game while leading the 75-yard touchdown drive that would inevitably win the game. To start that drive, Gabbert threw a strike to Taywan Taylor for 35 yards, the longest play of the day for the Titans offense. Gabbert followed this up by almost throwing a touchdown pass to tight end MyCole Pruitt, but it was about a foot too far for Pruitt to haul in despite being behind the secondary. Gabbert would find Pruitt just a few plays later though, wide open in the end zone from two yards out on what would be his easiest completion of the day due to blown coverage.
2018 Week 11 vs IND (11 / 16 / 118 / 1 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Blaine Gabbert entered in relief of the injured Marcus Mariota just before halftime and would play at quarterback for the rest of the game. The Titans were already down 24-0, so Gabbert inherited a tough situation made even tougher by his poor play, as Gabbert did basically nothing until the last drive where he gained 62 of his 118 passing yards in pure garbage time with a number of back-ups in for the Colts defense. Gabbert made some nice throws downfield on his way to capping off this drive with a well-lofted fade to Tajae Sharpe from the one-yard line. Gabbert did have one ugly interception in the third quarter as well, tossing the ball straight into the arms of Colts linebacker Darius Leonard as no other Titans receiver seemed to even be in the vicinity.
2018 Week 3 vs JAX (1 / 3 / 8 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Blaine Gabbert received the start in place of an injured Marcus Mariota, but he attempted only three passes before taking a massive hit resulting in a concussion and potential injury to his throwing arm. Gabbert would not return to the game and was replaced by Mariota.
2018 Week 2 vs HOU (13 / 20 / 117 / 1 / 0 pass, 2 / 2 / 0 rush)
Blaine Gabbert was named the starter in a game-time decision for the Titans this week with Mariota sidelined due to injury. Gabbert had a very quiet game with a run-heavy game script. He threw only nine passes in the first half, with his highlight of the game coming on their second drive where Gabbert completed a short pass to Taywan Taylor that was taken to the house for an 18-yard touchdown. Gabbert got a break midway through the third quarter as he side-armed a screen pass to Rishard Matthews that was nearly thrown backward which would have resulted in a Texans touchdown, but the pass was indeed barely moving forwards and ruled incomplete. When it mattered, Gabbert made the throws required to help move the chains throughout this game. He would, however, almost make a critical mistake on the Titans' final drive as Gabbert had a pass batted back into his own hands, scrambled more, and attempted to throw a second pass. This, of course, would result in a penalty--but it could have been much worse as the Titans were within field goal range. Gabbert would help make up for it on the next play by completing a screen pass to Corey Davis that was taken 18 yards for a big first down to set up the game-winning field goal.
2018 Week 1 vs MIA (11 / 22 / 117 / 0 / 1 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Blaine Gabbert was thrust into the game early in the second half due to an elbow injury sustained by Marcus Mariota. Gabbert completed just 50 percent of his pass attempts while throwing an interception. He did not look sharp in this limited playing time and may need to start next week depending on Mariota's injury status.
