NASHVILLE – The Titans pulled off a crazy comeback win on Sunday against the Chiefs, and the team has received some national attention because of it.
Running back Derrick Henry appeared on NFL’s Network’s “You Ball, You Get the Call” feature with Deion Sanders after his 188-yard, two-touchdown performance against the Chiefs.
Quarterback Ryan Tannehill was highlighted on ESPN for his third game-winning drive in his first four starts.
Also, defensive back Joshua Kalu’s blocked field goal to preserve the team’s 35-32 win made SportsCenter’s list of Top 10 plays, as it came in at No.8.
The Titans were also a topic of conversation on NBC’s Football Night in America on a day when the top broadcast crew from CBS - Jim Nantz, Tony Romo and Tracy Wolfson - was in Nashville for the game.
“The most dominant player on the field today was Derrick Henry,” said former NFL head coach Tony Dungy, who's now with NBC. “He was awesome, and got back to that dump truck mentality. He was the story of this game. Even when they were behind, Mike Vrabel stuck with the running game, and that was critical.”
Hist Mike Tirico agreed: “As great as (Patrick) Mahomes was, Derrick Henry was just as good.”
The Titans are 5-5 heading into a bye weekend. The team will return to action on November 24 against the Jaguars at Nissan Stadium.
