Tennessee Titans Keep Playoff Hopes Alive With Win Against Bills

The Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills game was another last minute thriller. Both teams had lackluster performances from their defenses while the offenses started a shoot-out.

Tennessee’s defense brought it together in the final minutes with an interception that would lead to the game winning TD pass to Nate Washington. They also stopped the Bills offense’s last attempt to come back, forcing a 4-and-out, capped off by a well called blitz.

This game was more than anyone could ask for when watching football. The Titans continue to bring games down to the final minute.

QB Ryan Fitzpatrick had a great day if you take away the costly pick, throwing for 225 yards, 3 TD’s, and 1 INT. The Bills also had great success with their run game. Fred Jackson found 71 yards on 9 carries while Spiller found 70 yards on 12 carries.

Chris Johnson had another fine performance against the Bills, carrying the ball 18 times for 195 yards and 2 TD’s. Johnson had an 83 yard TD run in the first quarter that set the tone for his day. He also had a key run at the end to bring the Titans close to the Bills redzone.

Titans DE Derrick Morgan teamed up with DE Kamerion Wimbley early in the game for a sack/fumble that helped them take the lead early in the game.

In the end the Titans pulled off the win through a 4 and 9 pass from Hasselbeck to Nate Washington which would give the Titans the lead by one point.

    This is all well and good, but without a reasonable defensive we will not go far. On the bright side, Zack Brown is freaking fast!

      Yeah the defense has to get it together. I loathe how much space this scheme is giving underneath.

        How many more games would it take until Jerry Gray is released?

          End of the season… =(

            Do you have an idea on who will fit us well because obviously Jerry Gray is missing something?

            Hard to say. Don’t know who all will be available by the end of the season. They’ll want someone who’ll stick with the 4-3, I’d guess. Other than that, they could look a lot of places.
