NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mike Mularkey credits Marcus Mariota for why the Tennessee Titans are scoring points at a clip this franchise has never seen before.Having Aaron Rodgers just isnt enough right now for the Green Bay Packers.Mariota threw for 295 yards and four touchdowns Sunday, helping the Titans rout the Packers 47-25 for their second win in three games.Tennessee has scored at least 35 points in three straight games in that span, something this franchise has never done before in a single season even with quarterbacks named George Blanda, Warren Moon or Steve McNair.Hes playing well for us right now, Mularkey said. He knows the things we cant do with the turnovers, but hes the reason we have the chance to put the points up.DeMarco Murray also ran for 123 yards, including a 75-yard touchdown on Tennessees first play from scrimmage. Six different Titans scored a touchdown helping Tennessee (5-5) match its win total of the past two seasons combined.The Packers (4-5) lost their third straight and for the fourth time in five games, falling below .500 at the latest point in the season since 2013 . Injuries are piling up, and it only gets tougher for Green Bay with two more road games before they play at Lambeau Field again.We dug ourselves a huge, huge hole and, frankly, it comes down to the basics of football, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. We werent nearly to the standard that we expect from one another.Here are some things to know about Tennessees big win:STREAKING MARIOTAMariota came into this game tied with Rodgers for the most touchdown passes in the NFL over the previous five weeks at 13. He threw two more than Rodgers to match the franchise record set by Moon in 1987 for most consecutive games with multiple TD passes at six. Mariota also has 21 TD passes this season, making him the first quarterback for this franchise to throw at least 20 in a season since Steve McNair had 24 in 2003. McNair was co-MVP that season with Peyton Manning.Mariota is the first quarterback in league history to have three games with a 70 percent or better completion rate, at least four TD passes and no interceptions during his first two seasons.POTENT TITANSTennessee has scored at least 26 points in each of the past six games, cranking up the offense to 36, 35 and now 47 points against Green Bay. They also had five plays of at least 32 yards or longer, four of those passes from Mariota. He completed TD passes to four different players.STRUGGLING PACKERSFor the second straight week, the Packers found themselves trailing. This time, they have only themselves to blame after the Titans attempted an onside kick to open the game with the ball going straight to the Packers. With the ball at the Tennessee 49, Green Bay went three-and-out. It took a little bit to get going, Rodgers said.LEWAN EJECTEDThe Titans certainly didnt miss left tackle Taylor Lewan as DeMarco Murray ran for 123 yards and a TD with Tennessee piling up 446 yards of total offense. But Mariota was sacked twice, the first sacks allowed by Tennessee in three games. He was tossed after knocking away back judge Steve Freemans hand at the start of Tennessees second series. Mularkey said he had told his team referee Jeff Triplettes crew already had ejected five players this season. Lewan said he wasnt proud of what happened.INJURIESThe Packers lost two players within the first five minutes to ankle injuries. Both linebacker Jake Ryan and starting right guard T.J. Lang hurt ankles and originally were questionable to return before being ruled out early in the third quarter. Dan Barclay replaced Lang. Then Packers left tackle David Bakhtiari hurt a knee and was replaced by rookie Jason Spriggs late in the third quarter. McCarthy said they had so many injuries in the game he didnt have a list when he talked with reporters after the game or an update on Bakhtiari.QUOTABLEWe knew we had to bring it, or it could have gotten ugly for us, said Titans linebacker Brian Orakpo who had two of Tennessees five sacks.UP NEXT:Packers: Remain on the road, facing the Washington Redskins.Titans: Travel to Indy to face the AFC South rival Colts.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Teresa M.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Richmond coach Danny Rocco spent five years as an assistant coach at Virginia and probably knows Scott Stadium better than new Cavaliers coach Bronco Mendenhall.When Rocco takes his Spiders to Charlottesville on Saturday to be the first opponent of the Mendenhall era at Virginia, he believes his team will be ready for the moment. Richmond is coming off a season in which it reached the Football Championship Subdivision semifinals. It also returns 16 of 22 starters this year.I feel this game is not too big for our team, Rocco said as he prepares to start his fifth season with Richmond. I feel that a lot of times in these FCS-BCS games, there is a mentality that the game is too big. Our kids have been in some big games.The atmosphere figures to be highly charged with Virginia fans excited about the new regime. Mendenhall won 99 games in 11 years at BYU, and took the Cougars to a bowl games after each season. The Cavaliers havent been to a bowl game since 2011, and while Mendenhall doesnt even entertain the idea that his program wont succeed at Virginia, hes as anxious as anyone to see how they perform in a real game.Really the best stance is to under-promise and over-deliver, he said this week. I think the promise comes from people just seeing and believing this will work by past history. I dont think anyone wonders if well win or not.The biggest question is when and with whom and where are we starting from.The Spiders have won three of eight meetings against BCS teams in the past 10 years, and have the Colonial Athletic Associations preseason offensive player of the year in quarterback Kyle Lauletta and its preseason defensive player of the year in defensive back David Jones. They also have a whole roster of players who look forward to stepping up in class to show that they can play at the higher level.You want to make it just another game, but you cant, linebacker Omar Howard said. Its a FBS gamee.dddddddddddd Its a big venue. Its the start of your season. Its exciting and I think you have to embrace that excitement and you have all the emotions that go into that and let it fuel you.---Here are some things to watch when Richmond visits Virginia:PASSING BATTLE: Virginia has a new quarterback in strong-armed Kurt Benkert, a transfer from East Carolina, and Richmonds Jones came from nowhere last season and had nine of the Spiders 22 interceptions. The Cavaliers have some speedy receivers, and Jones ability to defend downfield could prove vital to Richmonds chances. Richmonds Lauletta ranked second nationally last season, his first as the starter, with 3,598 passing yards.GRIND IT OUT: The Cavaliers running backs won high praise from Mendenhall for being the most outstanding unit through spring camp and the preseason. They are led by Taquan Mizzell, who ran for nearly 700 yards last season and set an Atlantic Coast Conference record for receptions by a running back with 75 for another 721 yards.DEPTH: Mendenhall has been pleased with his teams effort in getting up to speed with the meticulous way he likes to do things, but the Cavaliers are short on depth on the offensive line and in the secondary. Key injuries at either spot could make things a lot more difficult for Virginia to live up to Mendenhalls expectations.HISTORY: Richmond has lost 10 straight in the series and the Cavaliers lead the all-time series 28-2-2. In those games, the Cavaliers have outscored Richmond 984-132.FAMILIAR FACES: Rocco this year was elected to the American Football Coaches Association board of trustees, of which Mendenhall is also a member. The Spiders also have five coaches who have previously coached at Virginia, as well as former Cavaliers wide receiver Fontel Mines and linebacker Clint Sintim on staff.
