Stephen Tulloch, the king of all tacklers, got stiff armed by Eddie Royal early in the third quarter.  I know a guy missing one tackle isn't that big of a deal, but when that is all you can do, you better do it.

It was so awesome to see Marc Mariani return that kickoff for a touchdown.  I remember being at the game and going crazy because it had been so long since a Titan had done that.  It would have been nice had they not turned around and almost let the Broncos do the exact same thing.

Michael Griffin had a nice pick in the second half on a play where he and Will Witherspoon had the receiver blanketed.

Vince Young missed a wide open Jared Cook down the field on a play that came with 8:33 left in the game with the Titans leading 20-16.  A completion there would have given the Titans a big first down, good field position, and the ability to take some time off the clock.

Jeff Fisher challenged a 4th and inches QB sneak spot late in the 4th quarter.  It was a dumb challenge that cost the Titans what would have been a valuable timeout.

 

This thing looked all but over when the Titans were up 20-16 with the Broncos facing a 2nd and 25.  They were given a first and goal on a pass interference call against Chris Hope.  It really looked like he just lost the ball.

Mariani doesn't drop the kickoff if Donnie Nickey makes a block.

Kenny Britt had two huge drops on the final drive that could have given the Titans a legitimate shot at the end zone.
