The Tennessee Titans came into this season with a lot of hype surrounding their offense. With new additions to their high-powered offense in Pro Bowl wide receiver Julio Jones, the Titans were poised to make a deep playoff push this season. However, then came the lowly New York Jets who had other plans in mind. The Jets hosted the Titans this past Sunday and did not disappoint as they took down the Tennessee Titans in a thrilling 27-24 overtime victory.
Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson was major a factor in the epic victory. Wilson threw for 297 yards and two touchdowns and received outstanding protection from his offensive lineman throughout the entire game. His two touchdown passes went to wide receivers Jamison Crowder and Corey Davis, the latter being a former Tennessee Titan. Corey Davis led the Jets in receiving yards with 111 yards and and averaged 27.8 yards per catch.
Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill suffered a beating in the Sunday afternoon shocker as he was sacked seven times and could not garner enough progress for Tennessee's passing attack. Instead, the Titans shifted their focus to their ground game and amounted 157 rushing yards from their All-Pro running back Derrick Henry. After a late 4th quarter touchdown pass from Tannehill to wide receiver Cameron Batson, the Titans tied the game and took the Jets to overtime. However, they were defeated after failing to match the Jets score with a field goal in overtime to tie the game.
