It shouldn’t really be a shock for a number of reasons, but there are still many out there that will call it that anyway. The Tennessee Titans have, for the second game in a row, produced an upset on the road, this time going on to defeat the AFC’s top seed 28-12. The Baltimore Ravens just never got out of the gates, with the Titans capitalizing on two turnovers early on to take a 14-0 lead on two Ryan Tannehill touchdown passes.
He would only complete seven of 14 passes for 88 yards, but those two contributions set them on their way. Of course, Derrick Henry’s running was also huge for them. He rushed for 195 yards on 30 carries, again turning back the clock to a different time. He even threw for a touchdown from the three-yard line in the third quarter to help them increase their lead. Two forced interceptions of Lamar Jackson, likely to be the AFC’s MVP, summed up his night, though he still amassed 365 yards passing and 143 on the ground as they played catch-up. The Titans now await the winner of the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans, where they will travel to the winner next week.
