How the Titans clawed back.
Derrick Henry was his typical 4th quarter self, contributing 52 rushing yards in the final 15 minutes of regulation. The most important performance, though, came from Ryan Tannehill.

Tannehill simply has not been the same quarterback over the past month (timing that corresponds exactly with the season-ending injury of left tackle Taylor Lewan) but turned in a second-half performance that you hope to see from a franchise quarterback.
Tannehill was decisive, gutsy, and efficient, completing 12 of 15 second-half passes, and dragging the Titans back to a 24-21 lead with 2:18 remaining. The go-ahead touchdown was scored by A.J. Brown who, after struggling mightily with drops the past few weeks, scored a 14-yard touchdown on a 3rd-and-10 with a run-after-the-catch worthy of this season’s top highlight reel.
Baltimore was able to tie the game with a field goal before time expired, but the Titans dominated the overtime period.
Harold Landry contributed a drive-killing sack on the Ravens’ first, and only, overtime drive to get the ball into the hands of the Titans offense. An efficient drive was culminated by a 29-yard touchdown run by Henry, a final knockout punch on what was a fistfight of an afternoon.
