Titans run over the Lions

The Titans are continuing their march to the AFC South title, and continuing to emphasize the ground game.

Today against the Lions, Titans running back Derrick Henry continued his srong season, quarterback Ryan Tannehill ran for two touchdowns and passed for three touchdowns, and the Titans beat the Lions 46-25.

The win improves the Titans’ record to 10-4, and they remain in first place in the AFC South. If they win their last two games, the Titans win the division.

The Lions are now 5-9, and as if it weren’t obvious, definitely not in the playoff race. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford gutted it out through a rib injury and played well, but he couldn’t do it all himself, and once the game was out of reach in the fourth quarter, the Lions took Stafford out. The Lions’ defense was no match for Tannehill, Henry and company, and the Lions’ special teams had a couple of costly miscues.

A year ago, Tennessee was peaking at the right time and ended up making a surprise run to the AFC Championship Game. This year’s Titans team may be poised to go on another impressive postseason run.

  1. Further proof of the ineptitude of Matt Patricia’s defense. The greatest show on turf couldn’t score enough for this team. Atrocious. They should fire him again!

  2. As usual, Stafford throwing the ball well but two fumbles killed the Lions before the defense quit playing. Another losing season for Stafford, would he want to get out ?

  3. No defense for the Titans but the Terrible Twins, Henry/TiTannehill close to a possible division title …

  4. You could replace that MLB Tavai with a fat head sticker of himself stuck to the grass and nobody would notice. Another great pick by Quinn and Patricia.

  5. Titans defense better shape up, or it’ll be another playoff exit. Were it not for two red zone fumbles, the Lions may have put up 39 points on Tennessee. And that was without Kenny Golladay…easily one of the league’s ten best receivers. The offenses the Titans see in the playoffs will be better…

  6. Here comes Matt Patricia’s burner account to say they would have won by 2 touchdowns if he was still the coach. Wait for it……
