NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Marcus Mariota needs to get comfortable at home so he can match his NFL road success.Music City has been the Tennessee Titans quarterbacks own personal house of horrors in his evolving pro career. Mariota is just 1-7 at home and has turned the ball over 17 times, something that must stop if the Titans are to start winning games in Nashville.Titans coach Mike Mularkey said Wednesday Mariotas turnovers have been the difference in some games.I couldnt tell you exactly the reason why theres more turnovers here than on the road, Mularkey said. Its the same game. Hes playing the same. I can tell you that at a later date. I dont know why, right now, thats a big difference.Mariota has turned the ball over at least once in each home game with five fumbles and 12 interceptions since he came to the NFL last season. This season, he has five turnovers in just two home games.The contrast with how he protects the ball on the road is so drastic that Mariota looks like a different quarterback. He had only four turnovers in six road games as a rookie and has yet to lose a fumble with only two interceptions combined in three road games this season.Mariota is coming off a 30-17 win at Miami with no turnovers and three touchdown passes and a rushing TD. That marked his fourth game with four TDs, tying him with Giants quarterback Charlie Conerly (1948-49) for the most such performances over a quarterbacks first 17 starts.Mariota has no idea why hes played so much better on the road, but has a chance to figure things out when the Titans (2-3) host the winless Browns (0-5) on Sunday.I have to play better at home, Mariota said. We have to be able to come here and play well and to get some wins.Not turning the ball over would be a good place to start.Mariota had two turnovers returned for touchdowns in the Titans season opener, a 25-16 loss to Minnesota. He was intercepted twice by Oakland in a 17-10 loss Sept. 25, the latest home loss for a franchise that is 1-9 since drafting Mariota with the No. 2 overall pick out of Oregon last year.Its always on your mind when you have to make a decision, when you have to make a quick decision, Mariota said of protecting the ball.Mularkey said the Titans competition also plays into his quarterbacks turnovers.Weve played some pretty good teams here, as well, starting off with Minnesota, who hasnt lost yet, Mularkey said.Browns coach Hue Jackson has his own quarterback issues with his starter Robert Griffin III out injured and both Cody Kessler and Josh McCown limited in practice Wednesday by their own injuries. He couldnt answer why Mariota has been so different at home than the road but noted the quarterback is settling into the game and the Titans system.This is a very talented player, Jackson said. He has some talent around him and he understands how to play the game. I think you guys will be excited. I just dont want to see that this weekend, thats all.Game notes Titans safety DaNorris Searcy, who missed the last two games with an injured ankle, practiced fully Wednesday and wasnt on the injury report. LT Taylor Lewan (shoulder) was limited along with CB Cody Riggs (hamstring). Punter Brett Kern (illness) and NT Al Woods (pulled calf) did not practice.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Teresa M. Walker at Air Max 270 React City of Speed .

ARLINGTON, Texas -- When the Texas Rangers recalled Joey Gallo earlier in the day, manager Jeff Banister talked about what the young slugger could provide for the lineup.Gallo then had an impressive homer in his first start this year, and Mitch Moreland also went deep the opposite way for the Rangers in their one big inning against Sonny Gray during a 6-3 loss to Oakland on Tuesday night that ended their three-game winning streak.Gallos swinging the bat well, Banister said. We tried to find some potential power to put in our lineup. He showed that tonight.Considered one of the Rangers top prospects, Gallo hit six homers in 36 games in his MLB debut last season. But before getting called up from Triple-A Round Rock and starting at first base against the As, he had been up for only four games in late May and his only at-bat was a flyout as a pinch-hitter.The Rangers didnt have a hit against Gray (5-9) until Rougned Odor singled on the first pitch of the fifth, though the aggressive player was easily thrown out trying to stretch a routine single to right into a double.Thats obviously a little more aggressive than we like it, based on the result of the play, Banister said.Gallo then homered, a 448-foot opposite-field blast over the As bullpen in left-center. Ryan Rua singled before Moreland also went over that bullpen, a 423-foot homer to get Texas within 5-3. Robinson Chirinos doubled to make it five consecutive hits, but the Rangers had only one more hit the rest of the night.Texas recalled Gallo a day after revealing that Prince Fielder likely will have season-ending neck surgery for the second time in three years.The As won for the fourth time in five games. AL West-leading Texas had its three-game winning streak snapped.Nick Martinez (1-3) gave up five runs and six hits while pitching into the fifth after being recalled to start in place of Kyle Lohse, the 37-year-old right-hander designated for assignment with a 12.54 ERA after losing both of his Texas starts.I felt the same all four innings, just a couple of mistakes that they capitalized on it, Martinez said. Thats the biggest thing, I was attackiing the zone.ddddddddddddCoco Crisp led off the fourth with his eighth homer of the season, and Josh Reddick homered after Jed Lowries single. Semiens 21st homer started the fifth before Reddick added a run-scoring single for a 5-0 lead.Gray, who has won all six of his career starts at Texas, had a season-high eight strikeouts over six innings. All five hits he allowed came against consecutive batters to start the fifth.He pitched great, and he got through a tough spot, which he wasnt able to do against them the one time at home, manager Bob Melvin said. Hes working through some things in a difficult year for him, and he got through it tonight. He got us through six innings, and he pitched great.SHORT HOPSThe start of the game was delayed 62 minutes because of rain. ... It was the second time in their last four home games the Rangers had a rain delay. ... Gray has allowed 17 homers, matching his career high set last season. The right-hander had been 1-8 with a 6.45 ERA his previous 14 starts.THE OTHER BIG BOOMMoreland has homered in three of his last eight games, and five of his last eight hits are for extra bases. He has 16 career homers against Oakland, his most against any team.TRAINERS ROOMRangers: SS Elvis Andrus was out of the lineup for the second time in a nine-day stretch that also included an off day for the team. Banister said Andrus was a little banged up but would play Wednesday. ... OF Drew Stubbs (sprained left toe), out since May 23, was transferred on his injury rehabilitation assignment from the Arizona League to Triple-A Round Rock.UP NEXTAthletics: Lefty Sean Manaea (3-5, 4.61 ERA) has allowed only two runs in 20 innings his last three starts -- and the As have scored only once while he was pitching in that span.Rangers: Yu Darvish (2-2, 3.12) is winless in his two starts since returning from the disabled list, but the Rangers have scored only two runs total for him in those games. The right-hander struck out 11 in six innings at Kansas City last Friday. ' ' '
