The Titans might be hoping Derrick Henry still has a crazy breakaway run in him, but not sure how much longer they can ride that train. The clock is ticking around four minutes, and we already know Tennessee may or may not try a late FG attempt. The pressure is mounting on Ryan Tannehill to make a huge throw.

That’s a huge stop for Tennessee’s D, and it’s because of Harold Landry’s heroics on third down. Titans will have to start from very deep in their own territory however. We have seen Tennessee string together long drives, but it feels like they have to score a touchdown here.

Melvin Gordon is averaging nearly six yards per carry running against this Titans front, up to nearly 80 yards on the ground on the night. It’s getting close to now-or-never time in terms of Tennessee putting an end to these gashes. Clock ticking under six minutes.

This is … shocking

It’s safe to say Melvin Gordon made up for that fumble earlier. The former Charger now has 57 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Most importantly, he has given Denver a one-point lead. Something worth pointing out, however, is that there is still 9 minutes left to play. A ton of time!

This is how you respond if you’re the Broncos. All of a sudden Drew Lock is slinging it again. Helps that Melvin Gordon finally found some space in the open field, too. Huge run to set up a red-zone push, then Jerry Jeudy showcases his awesome footwork on a big first-down catch. Denver threatening to take the lead here … in part because of all the points left on the board via Tennessee’s kicking predicament.

Drew Lock has been surgical on this drive. 7 plays 74 yards and the rookie can take the lead here.

Jonnu Smith’s TD catch means four different Titans have now caught at least four passes from Ryan Tannehill. Tennessee is balanced offensively, complete with a predictably heavy workload for Derrick Henry (25 carries). It’s about time they finally punched it in to put points on the board (even with the latest horrendous Gostkowski miss). Now it’s up to the Broncos to respond. For as well as Drew Lock flashed early in this game, Denver has been quiet since the first half. It’s time for Melvin Gordon to step up … or Noah Fant to keep on doing his thing until the Broncos can get close enough to even this up.

That run game hasn’t been explosive tonight, but they have gone to it enough for the entire defense to fall for a playaction on fourth and goal. Great play call and the Titans have the lead. By only six, since Gostkowski missed the extra point …….. I don’t think he will be on the roster moving forward.

Adam Humphries has been in no way the No. 1 wideout tonight, but the former Buc has made quite the impact on third down. Four catches for 33 yards but he has been absolutely clutch. Titans keep the drive alive and this series feels very important.

For those questioning the Titans run game tonight, this isn’t much different from what they did last year. The difference is that Derrick Henry would just end up breaking one of these attempts for 40 yards. A-gap, B-gap runs that result in two or three yards, it has been the game plan.

Tennessee gets bailed out by a huge facemask penalty there. Jeremy McNichols was called up from the practice squad today. Has been on the verge of making the roster for years now but Tennessee clearly likes what they have seen out of him in preseason and in training camp. With rookie Darrynton Evans out, he’s going to continue to play a big role tonight.

Contract year for him. Can tell he’s motivated!

This same Corey Davis had nearly 900 receiving yards in 2018. Of course, he’s had his fair share of issues along the way, but just a reminder that this guy, when healthy and involved, can be a real contributor!

Corey Davis up to 79 yards now!

Corey Davis continues to connect with Tannehill. Five grabs for 79 yards so far.

Jonnu Smith’s prop hits. That’s three catches for him for 35 yards.

Melvin Gordon could get a nice workload here if Lindsay can’t play in the second half.
