Well, wins don't have to be particularly pretty to count.The Tennessee Titans came back to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-17 today at LP Field in what was a pretty ugly, mistake-filled game. The Bucs got on the board first, chunking their way down the field but not making it in the red zone for a field goal, but the Titans took advantage of the kickoff return. Marc Mariani handed off to Tommie Campbell on a reverse, and Campbell showed off excellent speed in outracing the defenders 84 yards for a touchdown.The Titans would get within aiming distance of the end zone their next two possessions, but failed on fourth down from the Bucs 30 after moving the ball 29 yards and extended their lead to 10-3 after finally getting to the red zone after a Dave Ball sack/fumble/fumble recovery set them up at the Tampa 38. The Bucs would tie the game right before halftime, though, after a Javon Ringer fumble was returned to the Titans 29. Josh Freeman capped off the drive when Mike Williams b...

The Tennessee Titans have been written off by many this season after winning only twice in their last six games before taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. However, given the circumstances which unfolded on Sunday, the Tennessee Titans have to be considered right in the mix for the AFC South division title.

Titans RB Chris Johnson had run for 4,598 yards in his three previous seasons before the start of 2011.
Yet, this season, he had not flirted with the sort of rare numbers he had since 2008 – until today against the Bucs. Johnson had the third-best effort of his career, running for 190 yards on 23 carries, dazzling with his precise, quick cutting and rapid acceleration that left...

This loss was so much worse than the Green Bay loss because the Bucs were supposed to lose to Green Bay and they almost won. The Titans are not that great of a team and the Bucs had plenty of opportunity to put the game away, and yet they kept ******* up at the worst possible times. There was a period for a while when Josh Freeman would pull the team to a victory in the last few...
