NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – They were so close to beating the Indianapolis Colts Sunday, but when the final second ticked off the clock at Nissan Stadium, the Tennessee Titans ended up with another missed opportunity.
Leading by 13 points in the fourth quarter, it’s a game they should have won and now face an extra week of thinking about the loss during the bye.
“You know, the past few games I feel like, you know, we gave it away,” said cornerback Perrish Cox. “I’m not taking nothing away from those guys on the other team, but we gave those away.”
The Titans now sit at 1-2 in the AFC South, so they are still in the thick of it.
There were some positive things that happened, like having a chance to win the game, but if they want to turn the corner to become a playoff team and a division contender, they can’t miss opportunities like having a 13 point lead in the fourth quarter and letting it slip away.
“The things that happened in that game should have never happened, you know what I mean? And I can’t really tell you exactly what was said, but, it just, the point of us not finishing that game was ridiculous,” said tight end Delanie Walker.
The Titans have four days off starting Thursday and won’t play another game until they host the Buffalo Bills on Oct. 11.
