Titans to pick 20th in NFL Draft
Nashville, TN – When Mike Munchak was hired as head coach of the Tennessee Titans on February 7th, 2011, an uncertain landscape awaited him. The franchise had only recently parted ways with the only head coach in its Tennessee history, and team owner K.S. “Bud” Adams, Jr. had already made the decision to begin anew at the quarterback position.
But the foremost concern on the mind of team management, players and fans alike was whether or not there would even be a football season.
A year later, on the heels of a 9-7 season in which the Titans narrowly missed out on a playoff berth, the franchise is once again enjoying stability and a sense of hope. «Read the rest of this article»
Tennessee Titans (7-6) at Indianapolis Colts (0-13)
Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans (7-6) begin a three-game stretch against teams from the AFC South this week, as they travel to take on the Indianapolis Colts (0-13). Kickoff at Lucas Oil Stadium (capacity 63,000) is scheduled for noon CST on Sunday, December 18th.
This will be the second of two yearly meetings between the Titans and Colts. In the first matchup at LP Field on October 30th, the Titans turned a pair of interceptions into two touchdowns by Nate Washington en route to a 27-10 victory. Tennessee’s other touchdown came after Patrick Bailey blocked a Colts punt and Jason McCourty recovered the ball in the end zone.
Despite their loss last week against the New Orleans Saints, the Titans remain in the playoff chase with three games remaining on the schedule. The Houston Texans clinched the AFC South Championship with their win last week at Cincinnati, but the Titans are still alive in the Wild Card hunt. «Read the rest of this article»

Nashville, TN – Daniel Graham pushed the defender, sold the play fake and eased into the end zone.
Waiting on the spiraling football thrown to him by Matt Hasselbeck was the hardest part.
Seconds later, Graham grabbed the pass for the game-winning touchdown against his former team.
Graham’s first catch as a Titan put Tennessee up with a little more than four minutes left, and the defense held on for a 17-14 win against Denver Sunday at LP Field.
“It feels real good,” said Graham, a 10-year NFL veteran who signed with Tennessee in the offseason. “Last year was the first year I didn’t have a touchdown. To come back and have the game-winning touchdown against my former team feels good. It seemed like the ball was in the air forever.” «Read the rest of this article»

Nashville, TN – Tommie Campbell had the view that defensive backs have in their dreams.
The Titans rookie safety saw a wobbling pass and 90 yards of lush, open LP Field grass.
Seconds later, the seventh round draft pick and former airport janitor, brought thousands to their feet by taking the interception for a touchdown. Campbell had enough gas in his tank to punctuate the return by putting one hand on his helmet in a tribute to Deion Sanders before high-fiving fans in the front row.
“I guess the quarterback and receiver weren’t on the same page,” Campbell said. “I saw the ball, broke on the ball and caught the ball first because I have had trouble with that at practice. From there, it was just run like Forrest Gump. I just took off and didn’t stop until I got into the end zone. «Read the rest of this article»

Nashville, TN – So much for the worst slump of Peyton Manning’s career.
Manning threw for 319 yards and two touchdowns, and the Indianapolis Colts snapped their three-game skid by beating the Tennessee Titans 30-28 on Thursday night to stay just a half-game back in the AFC South.
“Hopefully we can sort of build off this win,” Manning said. “Nobody likes losing three in a row.”
The four-time NFL MVP put his atypical struggles behind him with a crisp performance against a defense that hasn’t intercepted a pass in 14 straight quarters. He completed 25 of 35 passes in his 63rd 300-yard game, tying Dan Marino for tops on the career list.
Back where he starred in college at the University of Tennessee, Manning nearly had a third touchdown pass but rookie receiver Blair White broke up a pass intended for Reggie Wayne in the end zone. «Read the rest of this article»
Tennessee Titans (2-1) vs. Denver Broncos (1-2)
Nashville, TN – After improving their record to 2-1 with a road victory over the New York Giants, the Tennessee Titans return home this week to play the Denver Broncos (1-2). Kickoff at LP Field (capacity 69,143) is scheduled for noon CDT on Sunday, October 3rd.
The Titans and Broncos, two charter members of the AFL in 1960, have played infrequently in recent years. This week’s visit by the Broncos is only their second game in Tennessee since the Titans’ move to the state in 1997, and Jeff Fisher has faced the Broncos just three times as a head coach, fewer than any other AFC opponent. The Titans’ all-time record against the Broncos, including playoffs, is 21-15-1. «Read the rest of this article»
