There were ups and downs in the Titans' second outing of the preseason. On the positive end, Jake Locker looked fantastic, completing eight of 10 passes for 75 yards and a touchdown and making a few very impressive plays along the way.

On the other side of the ball, the defense was questionable all night. Despite the Saints sitting quarterback Drew Brees, they managed an impressive 321 passing yards and four passing touchdowns.

The real difference maker for the Titans was turnovers. The Titans surrendered three fumbles and an interception to New Orleans, while the Saints didn't turn it over at all.

Still, with the team depending on Locker's performance, and Locker looking sharp, there's reason for optimism going forward.

Titans 24, Saints 31
