LOSS - Tampa Bay Buccaneers 14 Tennessee Titans 42

Opening day was a matchup between the No. 1 overall and the No. 2 overall selections in the 2015 NFL draft.

The pre-game expectations were high, the fan excitement was in the stadium sell-out for Jameis Winston’s debut for Tampa Bay at quarterback, and Marcus Mariota started at quarterback for Titans.

Mariota snagged the headlines for the day, passing for 209 yards and four touchdowns as the Titans defeated the Buccaneers 42-14. Winston's Buccaneer debut was mostly forgetful, as his first pass attempt in the NFL was a "pick 6" interception.
