Titans Set Multiple Return Records in Victory

Posted Dec 30, 2012

TITANS SET NFL RECORD: The Titans trailed 14-7 before scoring four consecutive touchdowns on returns.  Linebacker Zach Brown scored twice on interception returns and Darius Reynaud added a pair of touchdowns on punt returns.  The Titans became the first team in NFL history with two punt return touchdowns and two interception return touchdowns in the same game, and they became only the second team in NFL history with four total return touchdowns in a game.  The only previous club to accomplish the feat was Seattle against Kansas City on Nov. 4, 1984.

REYNAUD SCORES TWICE: With less than a minute remaining in the first half, Darius Reynaud put the Titans ahead 21-14 on a 69-yard punt return for a touchdown, the first punt return for a touchdown in his career.  Then, two minutes into the third quarter, he scored again on an 81-yard punt return.  Reynaud set the franchise record and tied the NFL record with two punt return touchdowns in the same game.  Only 13 NFL players had previously accomplished the feat, most recently Reggie Bush on Oct. 6, 2008. Reynaud now has three total career touchdowns.  He scored earlier in the season (Sept. 23 against Detroit) on a kickoff return.

BROWN SCORES TWICE ON INTERCEPTIONS: Late in the second quarter, Zach Brown intercepted a Chad Henne pass and raced 79 yards for his first career touchdown.   It was the team’s longest interception return since Jordan Babineaux’s 97-yarder at Cleveland on Oct. 2, 2011.  In the third quarter, he struck again, picking off a pass from Henne and racing 30 yards for a score.  Brown tied the NFL record (reached several times) for interception return touchdowns in a game, and he became the third player in franchise history to accomplish the feat, joining Miller Farr (Dec. 7, 1968) and Ken Houston (Dec. 19, 1971).  Brown’s touchdowns gave the team four interceptions for touchdowns in 2012.
