Titans coach Mike Vrabel on the challenges of trying to fool Giants quarterback Eli Manning:

"I think the mind—he's seen all of the defenses that everybody can throw at him. He gets it out, still very quick. The quick game, the catch and run, is still something that's a big part of their offense. That's what he's always liked. I think that's what (Odell) Beckham (Jr.) is good at. They're taking a five-yard route and turning it into 20-yard slants. Same thing with (Saquon) Barkley. When he sees it and it's clean for him, he's willing to get the ball out of his hand. He does a good job with the RPO's, while trying to get the favorable look to deliver some of those quick game stuff."
