NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee coach Mike Mularkey gambled on the opening play, wanting to send a message to his Titans to be as aggressive as possible.They didnt recover the onside kick.The Titans did little else wrong the rest of the game.Marcus Mariota threw for 295 yards and four touchdowns and the Titans routed Green Bay 47-25 Sunday.Five different Titans scored a touchdown in the first half as Tennessee put together its best scoring performance this season with 35 points.With the win, the Titans (5-5) also matched the five victories over the past two seasons combined.We felt like this was a game we had to make a statement about our team, said Mularkey, who alerted his Titans on Saturday night of trying to steal a possession at the start.The defense forced the Packers three-and-out after the onside kick. Then DeMarco Murray took the Titans opening play from scrimmage, running 75 yards for a touchdown. He finished with 123 yards and also threw a TD pass, becoming the first non-quarterback to do that for this franchise in the same game since Earl Campbell on Sept. 7, 1980, for the then-Houston Oilers.Brian Orakpo had two of Tennessees five sacks, and the Titans also forced three turnovers .The Packers (4-5) started a three-game road swing by losing their third straight. Green Bay has lost four of five in dropping below .500 for the first time since 2013. They finished by winning the NFC North that season.We dug ourselves a huge, huge hole, and frankly it comes down to the basics of football, Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said.It comes down to the basics of football. We werent nearly to the standard that we expect from one another.Rodgers and Mariota came into this game tied for the most TD passes in the NFL over the previous five weeks with 13. Rodgers threw for 371 yards and two touchdowns, and he also ran for another.But Mariota completed his first 10 passes as Tennessee jumped on Green Bay, and he completed TD passes of 9, 32, 6 and 33 -- each to a different receiver.Mariota has 21 TD passes this season, becoming the first Titans quarterback with at least 20 TD passes in a season since 2003 when Steve McNair threw 24 and split the NFL MVP award that year with Peyton Manning.To even be mentioned among Steve McNair, especially around here, is an honor, Mariota said.STUNNING FIRST QUARTERThe Titans botched the first play of the game with an onside kick that went straight to the Packers. That was one of only two blemishes in the opening quarter. Tennessee outgained the Packers 231-26 in the first quarter and led 21-0. Murray cut inside left tackle Taylor Lewan and outraced everyone to the end zone for his longest TD this season, and he capped the next drive with a 10-yard TD pass to Delanie Walker.PACKERS HOLEGreen Bay trailed by as much as 35-10 before a late TD in the first half. It was the Packers biggest deficit in the first half of a game started by Rodgers, topping a 21-point deficit against the Giants in 2012.MURRAYS DAYThe Titans running back also matched Campbell for the franchise record with a rushing TD in his fifth straight game. Campbell set the mark in 1979. Murray came into Sunday as the NFLs second-leading rusher with 807 yards and a sore toe on his right foot that limited him in practice this week. He got his fifth 100-yard rushing game this season against a Green Bay defense that had been the NFLs stingiest against the run, allowing just 75.8 yards per game.He is the first non-quarterback with a rushing TD of 75 yards or longer and a passing TD in the same game since 1960 when John Henry Johnson did it Dec. 11, 1960.OUT OF HEREThe Titans led only 7-0 when they lost left tackle Taylor Lewan. On the first play of their second drive, Packers defensive tackle Letroy Guion was flagged for going unabated to the quarterback, and Lewan was arguing with Guion when back judge Steve Freeman tried to break it up. Lewan appeared on replays to knock Freemans hand away, and he was ejected for contacting an official. He was replaced by Dennis Kelly.Mularkey said he alerted his team that referee Jeff Triplettes crew had ejected five players already this season.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.

PHILADELPHIA -- A second petition has been filed asking the U.S. Supreme Court to reject the $1 billion settlement of NFL concussion lawsuits because of how it treats current brain injuries versus future ones.The former players who filed the petition complain that chronic traumatic encephalopathy diagnosed before the April 2015 cutoff can bring $4 million while future CTE diagnoses arent compensated. They say that violates Supreme Court rulings that insist each subgroup in a class action settlement be treated fairly.The petition, filed Monday, echoes earlier complaints that the lead players lawyers signed a quick deal with the NFL in 2013 favoring their clients over thousands of others.Lawyers on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee, who negotiated the deal, reject those arguments and say the appeals are holding up payments that ailing retirees need. The NFL declined to comment on Wednesday.The 31 petitioners include a number of men who played for the Dallas Cowboys, including 1996 Super Bowl MVP Larry Brown and Hall of Famer Charles Haley.Their lawyer, Deepak Gupta, said the Supreme Court had not reviewed a case involving the disparate treatment of class action subgroups in about 20 years. Meanwhile, he said, the federal appeals court in Philadelphia that upheld the NFL settlement has a different view of the issue than its counterpart in New York. That could pique the Supreme Courts interest.According to the petition, the family of former Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson, who was found to have CTE after his 2011 suicide, can seek an award of up to $4 million while the family of former Oakland Raiders quarterback Ken Stabler, whose CTE was diagnosed after his July 2015 death, cannot.CTE, a degenerative diseasee found in people whove suffered severe hits to their heads or repeated concussions such as boxers and other athletes, currently can be diagnosed only at autopsy, although scientists hope to diagnose it in the living within the next decade.ddddddddddddThe settlement covers future cases of Alzheimers disease, Parkinsons disease, Lou Gehrigs disease and dementia but not CTE.Seeking to head off a tsunami of future claims, Gupta wrote in the petition, the NFL pushed for a global settlement of all current and future claims -- while compensating only current CTE claims.Supporters of the settlement say it compensates future cases of dementia. But the payout for dementia is expected to average $190,000, compared with $1.44 million for CTE, the petition said. Gupta and other critics also complain the plan does not compensate the depression, mood swings and memory loss they consider precursors to dementia and a CTE diagnosis.It could be months before the Supreme Court decides whether to hear the case. The earlier petition was filed by the family of former Buffalo Bills fullback Carlton Cookie Gilchrist.The Plaintiffs Steering Committee lawyers on Wednesday pointed to the 3rd U.S. Circuit decision that found the award scheme fair, reasonable and adequate.The settlement would resolve thousands of lawsuits that accuse the NFL of hiding what it knew about the risks of football concussions. The settlement, overseen by Senior U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody, is designed to cover about 21,000 retirees for 65 years. About 9,000 of them have signed up for information, the plaintiffs lawyers said.
