GLENDALE, Ariz. –** The Titans lead the Cardinals 7-0 at halftime here at University of Phoenix Stadium. A look at what's happened so far:
Quarterback Marcus Mariota completed 10-of-15 passes for 99 yards in the first half.
Running back Derrick Henry put the Titans on the scoreboard first with a six-yard touchdown run. Henry fought off Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson as he approached the goal line, and he lunged to the pylon for the score.
The scoring play capped a nine-play, 50-yard drive, and gave the Titans a 7-0 lead. The Titans converted two third downs on the drive – first on a 3rd-and-1 run by Henry, and later on an 11-yard completion from Mariota to receiver Eric Decker on third and nine.
