Well it wasn't pretty there at the end, but....THEY WON! 


Titans Links!
Thanksgiving break is over! And to celebrate the Titans improved to 6-6 with a win against the Bears yesterday.There was definitely a collective sigh of relief when the final second ticked off the clock. Morgan said the team has been in positions like yesterday in the past, and a lot of the time they came out on the wrong side. The Titans are going into the bye at perhaps the perfect time. They definitely could use the short time off. The win also moved the Titans back up into second place in the division thanks to both the Colts and Texans losing this week.

Quick Hit: Mariota stays hot for the Titans.

Time to check out some thumbs up, and thumbs down from yesterday's game. "Thumbs up" first. Mariota straight up balled again. He went 15 for 23 for 226 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed four times for 46 yards. Derrick Henry offered up some fresh legs, and rushed eight times for 60 yards and also had a touchdown. Did you see that Rishard Matthews touchdown catch? Beautiful. The red zone defense also received a thumbs up. Which is almost odd to say considering the defense are also two out of the three "thumbs down." The defense started out slow yet again, and the passing defense was, again, trash. The passing defense let Barkley go 28 for 54, 316 yards, and three touchdowns. Gross. Penalties were also a big thumbs down from yesterday.

Quick Hit: Some quotes from the game.
