Just like they drew it up.
Well, not really. Not even close actually, but the Tennessee Titans, who led for all of 36 seconds, will take the 26-22 come-from-behind win over the New York Jets without too many complaints.
The Titans scored on Marcus Mariota’s 11-yard touchdown pass to Corey Davis that completed a comeback from a 16-0 first-half deficit that was created in large part by the Titans’ own ineptness in the first two quarters.
Tennessee’s comeback win evens the Titans record at 6-6 with the Jacksonville Jaguars coming to town for a Thursday night game. The Jets, who lost for the sixth straight time, fell to 3-9.
“It showed our mental and physical toughness,” cornerback Malcolm Butler said. “We never game up, regardless of how the game went. We could have thrown in the towel, but we kept fighting.”
