Harry Douglas

Heading into Sunday’s game, Titans receivers Kendall Wright and rookie Dorial Green-Beckham were relatively the only two receivers worth focussing a game plan around, but veteran receiver Harry Douglas made a considerable effort to have his presence felt.

The former Atlanta Falcons receiver excelled in an outside receiver role, as he caught three balls for 29 yards and a touchdown. Douglas also drew a key pass-interference penalty on third and goal in the end zone that set up a one-yard touchdown pass to Jalston Fowler in the end zone.

Raiders cornerback Neiko Thorpe was responsible for both pass-interference penalties that led to Douglas touchdowns, as Thorpe’s first pass-interference penalty wasn’t enough to keep Douglas from hauling in the touchdown and his second set up the score.

While Thorpe should get a considerable amount of the blame for both of those touchdowns, Douglas does deserve a majority of the credit for beating Thorpe on both plays. Douglas also drew a third pass-interference penalty on T.J. Carrie that resulted in a 14-yard gain and ultimately led to Douglas’ only touchdown.
