Tennessee Titans news
Tennessee Titans began the regular season at Pittsburgh to take on the reigning Super Bowl champion Steelers. While the Titans gave them a run, the Steelers ended up winning in overtime 13-10. Tennessee then went home to play the Texans who lost to the Jets in week one. the Titans stumbled and fell to 0-2 as they lost 34-31. they then played the surprisingly 2-0 jets at home. Tennessee came back from 14-0 to take the lead 17-14, but muffled punt catches from the rookie caused Tennessee to stumble again 24-17. While Jacksonville gave the Titans hope for their first win, they lost again 37-17 to start 0-4. Titans had the worst pass defense in the NFL. Then then lost more back to back games to the Colts 31-9 and the Patriots 59-0, that being that most grueling defeat in franchise history. Tennessee came out of their bye week 0-6 to play Jacksonville again. Starter kerry Collins was benched as they brought in Vince Young. The bye week did something as the Titans put up a record 229 yard running from Chris Johnson as the Titans finally won 30-13. They then went to play the 49ers in San Francisco where they won their second game 34-27. After going home to take on the Bills (who are 3-0 coming off a bye with Dick Jauron), the game was tied at 17 in the 4th, when Tennessee erupted to win 41-17. the 3-6 titans then went to play the first of 3 grueling tough games. They passed the first test to beat Houston 20-17 because of a missed FG to tie the game. Then, they faced the Cardinals at home in which Arizona was 5-0 on the road. They were pinned on their own 1 with 2:36 and Vince Young capped a 16 play 99 yard drive to win on 4th and goal from the 10 with 6 seconds remaining. Tennessee then went to face the undefeated Colts. They fell in that game 27-17. Amazingly still not out of it, Tennessee pulled out back to back wins. First they disfigured and dissected the Rams 47-7, then they avoided a near late game slide against Miami, in which they were winning 24-6 in the 3rd quarter, but won in overtime on a Bironas field goal. The Titans miraculous run was finished at home though in a 42-17 loss against San Diego. The Titans are 7-8 and play Seattle. They have no chance at the playoffs, but can accomplish three things in their last game. One, Chris Johnson only needs 126 yards to beat Marshall Faulks record for most yards from scrimmage. Two, become the first team to start 0-6 finish 8-8. And three, Chris Johnson only needs 128 yards against a relatively leaky Seahawks run defense to become the 6th player in NFL history to rush for over 2000+ yards in a season.
