Ravens edge out Titans to advance 13 - 10

It was a real nail biter going into the last two minutes of the game. With only 57 seconds on the clock it looked like overtime until Matt Stover put a 47 yard field-goal through the uprights.

Tennessee dominated in nearly every stat but the most important…the score. Collins passed for 281 yards verses Flacco’s 161 yards. Tennessee racked up a total of 391 yards and held on to the ball for 34:07, and completed 21 first downs to the Ravens 9. Baltimore had a mere 211 yards and was limited to 25:53 time of possession. So how did Tennessee manage to lose this game? The answer is simple….Penalties and Fumbles.

Tennessee suffered 12 penalties totaling to a disastrous 89 yard loss, also the Titans turned the ball over three times while in Raven’s territory (two fumbles and one interception), which brought three potential scoring drives to a screeching halt.

Some may blame be made on the Refs for a missed dely of game call in the 4th which led to a Raven’s field goal but, I think the real problem were the red-zone turnovers and the 89 penalty yards. You just can’t commit these type of blunders in the post season and expect to win a football game. Better luck next year Tennessee!!
