Titans pull out squeaker over Lions

In what was undoubtedly one of the wildest games in Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions history, the Tennessee Titans managed to eak out a win over the Detroit Lions today, 44-41 in OT.

In a game that saw what many are calling “Music City Miracle II” on a punt by the Detroit Lions, and saw several Titans player and franchise records set (e.g., first game in Titans history to have two kickoff and/or punt returns for touchdown), there were many amazing – or infuriating, depending on your perspective – moments for both teams. Most frustrating for me personally, was seeing Titans kicker Rob Bironas kickoff with a 14 point lead and only 1:16 remaining in the 4Q and watching in agony as the Lions forced the game into overtime!

Many in the sports press are calling the game an “instant classic” and calling for NFL Films to get a special together post haste.

What a game!
