Titans vs Patriots: Preseason Week 2 Primer

Titans vs Patriots: Preseason Week 2 Primer

The Titans will wrap up a week spent with the defending Super Bowl champs tonight at Nissan Stadium at 6pm CT.

B6B: Hobbs & Shaw Review

By JASON MARTIN (@JMartZone – July 31, 2019) Going into Hobbs & Shaw, I had expectations. As nonsensical as much of the Fast and the Furious franchise has been, it’s also been relentlessly and consistently fun.
