Tennessee Titans drop preseason opener to Seattle Seahawks 27-17

 

Tennessee TitansSeattle, WA – The Tennessee Titans traveled to the Seattle Seahawks for their first preseason game Saturday night. The Titans started out on the wrong foot as starting quarterback Matt Hasselbeck threw two interceptions in his limited time on the field. Hasselbeck was 4-5 passes for 45 yards.

“On the first play, I had a choice to take a shot down the field to Jared Cook or take a quick completion to Nate Washington on the left. I decided to throw to Nate, and it was kind of a freak thing,” stated Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck. “It reminded me of my first pass the last time I was in this stadium, which was intercepted against the Saints.  I remember Pete (Carroll) coming up to me after that pass and saying not to worry about it because we had the rest of the game to play.  It was disappointing it started that way, not at all how I envisioned it.” «Read the rest of this article»
