The Week 2 preseason game between the Buccaneers and the Titans represents a clash of two quarterbacks in very different situations. Tampa Bay has Tom Brady, the undisputed GOAT who unexpectedly rolled back his retirement to return for a 22nd season.
On the other side is Titans newcomer Malik Willis. Although Ryan Tannehill is expected to be Tennessee’s starter, Willis appears to be the heir apparent. The former Liberty star dropped in the third round of the NFL Draft this year, but it looks like he might just have the goods to last in the league. His first look at NFL action was a success, all things considered; the dual-threat talent went 6 for 11 with 107 passing yards to go with 38 yards and a rushing touchdown last week against the Ravens.

Brady (staff) is not expected to be with the team on Saturday. Willis, on the other hand, could see the pitch very well. And the way he’s playing could make things even more interesting for Tennessee as they plan for this season — and beyond.
Willis’ second appearance in Titans blue could also go a long way towards bringing him into the national consciousness. What better time to strut your stuff than against the GOAT team?
