Titans 1st Half Notes

FISHER REACHES MILESTONE: Against the Broncos, Jeff Fisher recorded his 250th regular season game as a head coach.  He became one of just eight head coaches in NFL history to reach the milestone with one team, joining George Halas, Tom Landry, Don Shula, Chuck Noll, Curly Lambeau, Steve Owen and Bud Grant.  Also, the contest against the Broncos was Fisher's 261st overall game, including playoffs.  That ties Fisher with Bill Cowher for the ninth-highest total number of games with a team by a head coach.

BACK-TO-BACK SACKS: In the first quarter, the Titans recorded back-to-back sacks to stall a Broncos drive.  On second down, defensive ends Jason Babin and Dave Ball combined to take down Kyle Orton for a five-yard loss.  On third down, cornerback Cortland Finnegan blitzed and recorded an eight-yard sack. Ball now has at least a half sack in three consecutive contests.**

BABIN ADDS ANOTHER SACK:Going into the game against the Broncos, defensive endJason Babinhad two sacks this season.  In the first quarter, he collected a sack and a half.  The 2010 unrestricted free agent addition combined withDave Ballon the first.  On the next defensive series, he droppedKyle Orton** for a nine-yard loss on third-and-six.

RINGER'S RUN: In the second quarter, second-year running back Javon Ringer recorded a career-long 54-yard run. The play set up a touchdown three plays later. Ringer, a 2009 fifth-round draft pick, had 13 carries for 64 yards entering the game.**

YOUNG AND BRITT CONNECT FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE WEEK:For the second consecutive game, quarterbackVince Youngfound wide receiverKenny Britt** for a touchdown pass. Against the Broncos, the pair helped to tie the game at 7-7 with an eight-yard touchdown on third-and-one.

BIRONAS CONNECTS FROM 55 YARDS, MOVES UP SCORING LIST: With one second remaining in the first half, the Titans lined up for a 55-yard field goal attempt by Rob Bironas.  With the wind at his back, Bironas pushed the ball through the uprights, giving him the third-longest field goal of his career.  The sixth-year kicker's only longer made field goals were from 60 and 56 yards in 2007.  With the field goal, Bironas extended his streak of consecutive games with a field goal to 14, the second-longest streak of its kind in franchise history.  Also on the kick, Bironas moved past George Blanda (598 career points with Oilers) for second place on the team's all-time scoring list.
