Tennessee Titans 34 – New England Patriots 10

The Tennessee Titans sacked the New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady three times on Sunday.  Yes, three times. 

They kept the pressure on Brady throughout the game, and Brady looked mighty uncomfortable out there. So much so, he was pulled in the fourth quarter and replaced with backup QB Brian Hoyer.

Now, who would have imagined such things would be happening this past Sunday at Nissan Stadium in Nashville? Not many.

The glove was off and the fight was on as the Titans defeat the Cowboys

Titans 28 – Cowboys 14

The game in Dallas started out rather rocky for Titans fans.  A fumble and a turn over by quarterback Marcus Mariota in the first quarter set up Dallas for an easy score by new Cowboys’ wide receiver Amari Cooper

The Titans had just come off of their bye week and Mariota started the game without the glove he has had to wear since the beginning of the season; he’s been playing with a tweaked nerve in his throwing arm since week 2.

The gloveless Mariota had sparked hopes that he had healed and would be back at the top of his game, but then this game starts with a fumble, and those hopes were dashed a bit.

Tennessee Titans travel to London, miss a win by one failed two point conversion try

Los Angeles Chargers 20 – Tennessee Titans 19

The Titans “missed it by that much” as Maxwell Smart used to say in the Get Smart tv series. The Los Angeles Chargers held on to the win, 20 -19 in the last few seconds of the game after the Titans tried for two after a touchdown made by tight end Luke Stocker.

Quarterback Marcus Mariota attempted to throw to wide receiver Taywan Taylor, but the throw was tipped by one of the Chargers defenders and it was just not a catchable ball.

The Titans really did put forth a good effort in this game.  It was an exciting and the win could have gone to either team as the battle went on until the very end.

Despite injuries, Titans beat the Texans

Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen // @ksc47

Titans 20 – 17 Texans

The Titans won their home opener without their top three defensive tackles and their starting quarterback. They also had help from some unexpected plays. 

QB Marcus Mariota was out with an elbow injury from last week’s game against the Dolphins.  He has not been able to grip and throw the ball well since he suffered a late hit during that game. Other injuries are also plaguing the Titans.   

Left tackle Taylor Lewan is out under concussion protocol, right tackle Jack Conklin is still recovering from ACL surgery and backup right tackle Dennis Kelly has been hospitalized with an unnamed virus. Filling in at the tackle positions were Kevin Pamphile and Tyler Marz. 

Jonnu Smith played tight end, replacing Delanie Walker who is out due to surgery he had on the ankle that he fractured  last week.

Sloppy weather and sloppy play equal a Titans loss

Miami Dolphins 27 – Tennesee Titans 20

 

In a game that took a total of seven hours and eight minutes to finish due to weather delays, the Titans had their usual highs and lows.

Tennessee scored a field goal during their first possession. It could have been a touchdown, but wide receiver Taywan Taylor dropped the pass. Heartbreaking.

What We Learned from the First Week of Titans Training Camp

Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen //@ksc47

What did we learn from the first week of Titans training camp?

Cornerback Malcolm Butler is a hit.  Left Tackle Taylor Lewan is Nashville’s daddy (highest paid offensive lineman in the NFL, $80 million).  Tight End Delanie Walker gets a contract extension and he has a guardian angel.  

New coaching staff is comfortable and having fun, especially defensive back coach Kerry Coombs.  Wide receiver mystery: why is Rishard Matthews on the PUP list?  The Competition: running back Derrick Henry vs running back Dion Lewis.

The Titans Agony of Defeat

Hopes were high for the Tennessee Titans.  They were relishing the “underdog” role against the number one seed New England Patriots and were confident after getting an upset victory last week against the Kansas City Chiefs.  

Titans players were quoted in the press saying “it’s our time”.  They were confident in their quarterback, Marcus Mariota, insinuating that the Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady might be past his prime and due for a fall from the NFL throne.

At the beginning of the game, it looked like the Titans had a good chance to beat the Patriots; the Titans were first to score late in the first quarter when Mariota threw a 15-yard pass to rookie wide receiver Corey Davis for a touchdown.  It was Davis’ first NFL touchdown, a one-handed catch that got the Titans on the board and it felt like a breakthrough for the Titans first-round draft pick. Finally, during a playoff game, Davis made a big play. The glee didn’t last for long as the Patriots were able to score on their next possession and even the score.

Tennessee Titans Defeat Kansas City Chiefs By One Point

Titans 22 – Chiefs 21

The first half of the game belonged to the Kansas City Chiefs.  They scored on a touchdown by Chiefs’ running back Kareem Hunt, who ran the ball in from the one-yard line.  They scored another TD when tight end Travis Kelce caught a 14-yard pass from quarterback Alex Smith.  Not a good start for the Tennessee Titans

Titans’ quarterback Marcus Mariota was leading a good drive during the second quarter until he threw an interception to cornerback Marcus Peters; Titans head coach Mike Mularkey later stated that it was Titan wide receiver Corey Davis’ fault as Davis didn’t run his route correctly. The Titans have had this “miscommunication” and “execution” problem throughout this season.  It has frustrated the coaches and the fans and has lead to much speculation about the security of the coaching positions in Tennessee.

Titans Make it to the Playoffs, beat Jacksonville

Titans 15 – Jacksonville 10

 

Division rivals Jacksonville Jaguars were not gonna make it easy for the Tennessee Titans. The Jags were already in the playoffs, but they still played their first line players and were going all out against the Titans at freezing Nissan Stadium in Nashville on the last day of 2017.  The Titans have lost three games in a row and this was their last chance to survive and get into the playoffs.  They succeeded and made it in.  It was another “ugly” win for Tennessee.  It was another low scoring, not the most exciting game.  The end result is that the Titans are in the playoffs for the first time since 2008 is beyond exciting.

Another Road Loss For The Tennessee Titans

49ers 25 – Titans 23

Being on the road has not been kind to the Tennessee Titans.  When the team left Nashville two weeks ago, they were at the top of the AFC South.  After a loss to the Arizona Cardinals last week and to the San Francisco 49ers this week, the Titans are now second behind the Jacksonville Jaguars who have two consecutive wins.

It stings, it hurts.  What hurts even more, is that Arizona and San Francisco have been having rough seasons with tons of injuries. They were considered teams that should be “easy to beat”.  The Titans are making these easy to beat teams look good, unfortunately.
