Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – In Mike Mularkey’s Nissan Stadium debut as interim head coach, the Tennessee Titans failed to knock off the unbeaten Carolina Panthers as they fell to Carolina 27-10.

After a 45-yard field goal in the second quarter by kicker Ryan Succop, the Titans trailed 14-10 at the half, but Carolina went on to score 13 unanswered second half points to put the game away.
