The Titans proved they were a legitimate team by going to Seattle and taking the Seahawks best shot.
They also proved how much they missed the injured Jake Locker.
Backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was the thing that held the Titans back from a road upset, as the Seahawks were able to hang on for a 20-13 lead. Fitzpatrick threw pair of interceptions, and the Titans managed just.
A 3-1 start is being spoiled, as the Titans (3-3) had many chances to leave with a win. While you could argue it took a lucky bounce to keep them in the game (Jason McCourty’s touchdown on a botched field goal try involving the backup holder), they were a botched-scoop-and-score attempt from linebacker Zach Brown from a 10-point swing.
Marshawn Lynch plodded ahead for 77 rushing yards on 21 attempts, while adding a surprising 78 receiving yards (including a 55-yarder that caught everyone off guard). With Russell Wilson running for 62 yards (and several key fourth down conversions), the Seahawks simply didn’t give the Titans many opportunities late.
The win moves the Seahawks to 5-1, but they have to feel fortunate they survived this one.
