There might have been more dramatic finishes, but there was no more shocking result than the Titans’ 16-9 win at Pittsburgh.
And imagine your surprise if you were in the seats at Heinz Field and got the wardrobe adjustment Titans defensive tackle Jurrell Casey suggested.
“We made sure we put those Terrible Towels up their butts all day long,” Casey said, via Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean. “They waved them at the beginning of the game, but they left pretty early.”
Which seems a reasonable travel plan, if you had a towel making your seat more uncomfortable than it already was watching the home team.
The Steelers had to have felt similarly treated, as the Titans sacked quarterback Ben Reothlisberger five times, and held Pittsburgh to 32 rushing yards.
“You could see it in Ben’s eyes — he wanted to get back to that locker room pretty quick,” said Casey, who had two of the sacks. “As long as we keep getting to quarterbacks, it’s going to be like that all year.”
Consider that a warning if you go to future Titans games. Fabric softener’s probably a good idea too.
