Titans win wild one
Placeholder Image
Don’t count on the Titans using the same formula to clinch a win this Sunday in Houston.They had to pull out every trick in the book to eke out a 44-41 victory in overtime against Detroit.The Titans used a Music City Miracle-style lateral on a punt return for one score.RB Darius Reynaud took a kickoff 105 yards for another TD.Receiver Nate Washington made an acrobatic catch off the back of a defender’s helmet for a 71-yard TD.And CB Alterraun Verner ripped the ball away from Lion tight end Brandon Pettigrew to race 72 yards for a defensive touchdown.All that and it still came down to a Rob Bironas kick in overtime to beat Detroit in Nashville.“This was definitely the wildest game,” said Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt. “We’ll probably have five of the top 10 plays of the week.”The Titans set an NFL record by scoring five touchdowns of at least 60 yards. The spectacular plays may fill highlight reels, but they don’t mask some of the Titans glaring weaknesses as they prepare to face the 3-0 Texans.
