The best of the best NFL celebrations so far this season

Sonja Greenfield Detroit Lions Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

The best decision the NFL has made was going back and allowing touchdown celebrations.  It even has a Twitter page dedicated to celebrations called @GetYaPopcorn.

Glad they got the message that celebrations are fun.  Wish they could get the message about other things, but that’s another post for another day.

Bottom line, the best thing for a good celebration, is winning.  One of the more clever ones is from the Chicago Bears, Club Dub.  They turn their locker room into a mock club environment and celebrate the win.  To show what a big person I am, I’m posting Club Dub-Thanksgiving Edition, when they beat the Lions.

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

Karen Christensen, Tennessee Titans Reporter

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

Karen Christensen, Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen // @ksc47

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.

Titans suffer shutout loss to Baltimore Ravens 21-0

Karen Christensen, Tennessee Titans Reporter

Ravens 21 – Titans 0

Let’s just put it out there and get it over with. The Titans punted on every single drive, and quarterback Marcus Mariota was sacked eleven times.  

There was nothing to cheer about if you are a Titans fan. This game was the first time that the Titans were shut out at home since the team has been in Nashville. The Tennessee offensive line did not have an answer for the Ravens rushing attack, and Mariota was scrambling without success each and every quarter.

The team did not seem to have a good game plan this week, or last week against the Buffalo Bills for that matter.  Titans’ defensive coordinator Dean Pees did not figure out how to shut down the Ravens’ QB Joe Flacco. Pees didn’t seem to have any inside track for how to beat his old team.

The Titans’ offense was even worse. The receivers didn’t have the ability to get open for Mariota, and the offensive line was getting run over. The running backs just couldn’t run. At all. They kept getting stuffed and losing yards.

Tennessee Titans didn’t earn respect, lose to Buffalo Bills 13-12

Karen Christensen, Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen // @ksc47

Buffalo Bills 13 – Tennessee Titans 12

It was another no touchdown game for the Titans.  They’re back to square one and living off of kicker Ryan Succop’s field goals. There is no way you can get to the playoffs and win without players that can catch and hang on to the football. Nope.

Tennessee had three turnovers during this game at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York, and the Bills took full advantage of them. During the Titans’ first possession, wide receiver Taywan Taylor fumbled the ball which the Bills recovered and turned into a touchdown run for quarterback Josh Allen. Quarterback Marcus Mariota threw a pass intended for WR Nick Williams and it was picked off by Buffalo cornerback Taron Johnson.

The Bills did not score after this turnover in the second quarter, but the interception seemed to just be ‘par for the course’.  That made it hard for the Titans to get any momentum going at all. Titans running back Dion Lewis fumbled the ball in the third quarter, and the Bills were able to get a field goal off of that mistake.

Tennessee Titans beat Super Bowl champs in overtime thriller

Karen Christensen, Tennessee Titans Reporter

Tennessee Titans 26 – Philadelphia Eagles 23 (OT)

The Titans had a game with touchdowns!!! After last week’s field goal fest against the Jaguars, touchdowns are the best thing ever.  

Quarterback Marcus Mariota completed two touchdown passes and also ran for a two-yard touchdown. His TD was the first Tennessee touchdown in two weeks. The game-winning pass to wide receiver Corey Davis in overtime was a heart stopper.  And all this happened with Mariota still working his way back from an elbow injury.

The week leading up to the game against the Philadelphia Eagles was rather strange in that veteran wide receiver Rishard Matthews asked for the Titans to release him, which they did. Matthews had signed an extension during pre-season and it was unexpected that he would want to leave. Matthews did tell A-Z Sports that he was unhappy with the number of plays he was getting.

The Tennessee Titans will have to rely on their young wide receivers Tajae Sharpe, Corey Davis, and Taywan Taylor going forward. Judging from this week’s game, the team is going to be fine. Corey Davis finally had his breakout game and his first regular-season touchdown.  He was hampered in his rookie year by a lingering hamstring injury.

Two Titans Preseason Games Down, Two Losses

Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen //@ksc47

It’s not panic time yet folks. It is the preseason which is really just another practice session and a working job interview for the players. Last year the Tennessee Titans won just one preseason game and the team went onto the playoffs.

Head coach Mike Vrabel himself said that these first four games were just like an extended practice where the staff could see where they need to coach the players better. And of course, the first string players are only playing a series or two. We’re not seeing our #1 quarterback, or any other starters, for a full game. Fans may be chompin’ at the bit but the Titans won’t be racing full speed for another couple of weeks.

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.

Karen Christensen, Official Tennessee Titans Reporter

By Karen Christensen//@ksc47

The Tennessee Titans’ general manager Jon Robinson likes some wheeling and dealing to get what he wants. Originally the team had the following picks in the upcoming draft:
