Titans-Eagles Postgame Quotes

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Head Coach Jeff Fisher (opening statements)

I have kind of said that quite often that your opponent is different every game, it is different every situation, every circumstance is different. So, with that being the case you find different ways to win ballgames and we found a way to win this game today with 27 fourth quarter points.

That’s a very, very talented football team. You know, I’m proud of our guys because we hung in there. They were inside the five–yard line with a chance to go up by 16. And we make a play, knock the ball loose and that was a really huge turning point for us in the ball game.

But, we came through it healthy. We are fortunate to sneak a win away from a really talented team. And I very proud of these guys from what they have done over the last month with three of four on the road and then the Monday night and the short week and find a way to beat a team like Philly is good. So, we have to put it behind us and move on because we got a huge challenge this coming week. «Read the rest of this article»

Collins Throws Three Touchdown Passes in Win

The Associated Press

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – If Tennessee receiver Kenny Britt keeps playing like this, defenses won’t be able to focus only on stopping Chris Johnson.

Kerry Collins threw three touchdowns to Britt, who had the best game of his career two days after being involved in a bar fight, and the Titans scored a team-record 27 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to beat the Philadelphia Eagles 37-19 on Sunday.

Britt had the best receiving game in the NFL this season. He caught touchdown passes of 26, 80 and 16 yards and finished with 10 receptions for 225 yards — all career highs for the second-year player on a day when he didn’t start as punishment for his role in the fight.

“They see we got a receiver that can make plays downfield. They can’t just leave him one-on-one and things like that,” Johnson said. “It’s all up to them who they want to stop.”

Tennessee got 17 of its points off three Eagles turnovers — all by Kevin Kolb, who lost his starting job when coach Andy Reid announced after the game Michael Vick will start after the Eagles’ bye. «Read the rest of this article»
