TEAM NOTES

• The Titans won their sixth consecutive overtime game, a streak that dates back to 2015. 

• The win gave Mike Vrabel his 30th career win in the regular season since becoming the Titans head coach in 2018. 

• The Titans are 4-0 in overtime games since Mike Vrabel joined the organization in 2018. They are the only NFL team with four overtime wins in that period of time and one of only two clubs (New Orleans, 3-0) to go undefeated in at least three overtime games. 

• The Titans improved to 12-5 (.706) on the road since the start of the 2019 season. 

• Entering the game, the Seahawks were 24-1 when they had a lead of at least 15 points at halftime at Lumen Field since the stadium opened in 2002. The Titans trailed 24-9 at halftime but came back to hand the Seahawks their first-such loss since Oct. 10, 2004 against the St. Louis Rams. 

• The offense totaled 33 first downs, tied for the second-highest total in franchise history and the most since the Oilers had 33 first downs in an overtime game against the Cowboys on Nov. 10, 1991. The franchise record is 34 first downs against Cleveland on Dec. 9, 1990. 

• The offense's 532 total net yards (212 rushing, 320 passing) tied for the 11th-best total in franchise history. It was the most by the Titans since a franchise-record 607 total yards in an overtime win against Houston on Oct. 18, 2020. 

• The Titans had a time of possession of 42 minutes and 33 seconds. It was the fifth-best time of possession for the team since 1981 and the best since a 42:46 time of possession against the New York Giants on Oct. 1, 2000.

OLB OLA ADENIYI

• Registered a sack and led the club with two special teams tackles. 

• Recorded his first career sack, dropping Russell Wilson for a 12-yard loss at Seattle's one-yard line in overtime. The play, which came on third down, helped force a Seahawks punt, and the Titans won the game on the ensuing possession. 

DL DENICO AUTRY

• Registered a four-yard sack of Russell Wilson in the second quarter, and later in the same drive, he shared a seven-yard sack with Jeffery Simmons. His 1.5 sacks were his first as a member of the Titans and gave him 31.5 career sacks.
