Titans Deliver With 27-17 Win Over the Packers


GREEN Bay, Wisc. – On Amazon Prime, the Titans delivered at Lambeau Field.

The team's 27-17 win over the Packers arrived just in time.

"It felt good," Titans running back Derrick Henry said. "On a short week, we came in determined, paying attention to the little details and focused on getting better. We came into a great environment, a hostile environment, and we were able to get the win. We played a great game as a team."

Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 22-of-27 passes for 333 yards and two touchdowns in the contest, along with an interception.

Henry ran for a touchdown, and he also threw for another. He also went over the 1,000-yard mark for the season, thanks to 87 rushing yards against the Packers.

With the win, the Titans improved to 7-3.

"I'm proud of the way the guys came out and competed," Tannehill said. "We came in and wanted to be the more physical team, and I thought we were."

Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said the win "is indicative of who we are."

Rookie receiver Treylon Burks had a breakout game with the Titans, as he caught seven passes for 111 yards.

Tight end Austin Hooper caught a pair of touchdowns, including one from Henry.

Defensively, the Titans held the Packers to just 271 yards of offense, and 15 first downs.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers completed 24-of-39 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns, but the Titans stopped the run, and got off the field at critical times. The Packers were 0-2 on fourth down.

"It feels great, to come to Lambeau and get a big W," Titans safety Kevin Byard said, "especially against a Hall of Fame quarterback."

The Titans took a 7-0 lead early on a 14-yard touchdown pass from Tannehill to running back Dontrell Hilliard, which capped an eight-play, 83-yard drive.

The Packers cut the lead to 7-6 on a 14-yard touchdown pass from Rodgers to Christian Watson, with Kristian Fulton defending. Denico Autry blocked the extra point attempt, and it was 7-6 Titans at the end of the first quarter.

The Titans dominated the second quarter, when they surged ahead.

After an 18-play drive was stopped inside the Green Bay five when Henry was stuffed on fourth-and-one, the Titans forced a three-and-out, and they got the ball back.

The Titans then put together an eight-play, 41-yard drive that was capped off with a four-yard run by Henry, which made it 14-6 Titans at the half. The Titans ran 27 offensive plays to Green Bay's six in the second quarter, as they dominated play.

The Packers cut the lead to 14-9 on a 39-yard field goal by kicker Mason Crosby at the 8:25 mark of the third quarter.

The Titans scored a touchdown on a little trickery on their next possession, as Henry threw a "jump pass" to Hooper for a three-yard touchdown. The score made it 20-9, as the extra point attempt by Josh Lambo was no good.

"When it got called in the huddle, I was like, "It's time," Hooper said. "Luckily it worked like it did in the walk-through."

The Packers responded, as they cut the lead to 20-17 on another touchdown pass from Rodgers to Watson, this one from eight yards, and a successful two-point try.

But the Titans just kept on coming, and Tannehill connected with Hooper for a 16-yard touchdown to cap off a five-play, 63-yard drive, to make it 27-17.
