Henry had a 1-yard run, caught a 5-yard pass and was stopped for no gain before the fourth-down touchdown.
Derrick Henry rushed in a 17-yard TD before the quarter ended. Mariota later connected with Walker in the corner of the end zone. The 22-year-old Mariota, who was selected by the Titans with the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, is looking to grow more chemistry with the team's wide receivers, but he won't have Eric Decker on the football field.
Newton was held to a "pitch count" leading up to the preseason game in Nashville, Tenn., after 12 days of not throwing in team warmups or drills during training camp.
"It was a lot better".
Henry got another touchdown on the next drive, but it came after bashing his head against the Panthers' tough run defense over and over. After Carolina rookie Christian McCaffrey scored on a 17-yard TD run in the second quarter, Henry would add his second touchdown of the game. Cornerback Logan Ryan forced a fumble that Kevin Byard recovered, and Jaylon Brown's tipped pass was intercepted by Justin Staples.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota was his usual efficient self, helping the Titans roll up a 24-7 lead during the early stages of the contest. That's our intent. When you've got a lot of guys around the ball where they're supposed to be, good things happen, and that's exactly what happened.
On the downside, Henry - even though he was running behind the first-team offensive line for the most part - found very little room, totaling just 36 yards on 16 carries.
The Carolina Panthers would make things interesting in the third quarter.
Mariota connected with rookie receiver Taywan Taylor on a 20-yard pass across the middle on the first play of the game.
In Saturday's game, the Titans created turnovers on each of the Panthers' first two drives. Carolina would tie up the game on a 37-yard field goal from Graham Gano, but several minutes later it was a three-yard TD run from David Fluellen that put the Titans ahead for good.
