Pass to tight end Austin Hooper. Titans rookie receiver Treylon Burks’ 51-yard pass that allowed the Titans to kneel the clock Tennessee Titans (7-3) brought the fight to the Packers. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill had a season-best game, leading the way on 22 of 27 passing for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception to provide balance to the offense. Standings »• Depth Chart of All Teams »• Deal » | Injuries »• Football Power Index Rankings » More NFL coverage » Running back Derrick Henry rushed for 87 yards on 28 carries and a touchdown. He currently has over 1,000 rushing yards on the season. Henry also had 45 yards on two catches and threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Austin Hooper. He joined the San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey as the only non-quarterback with passing and rushing touchdowns in a game this season. A promising trend: The Titans’ receiver impacted the game for the second week in a row. Rookie Treylon Burks started things off with a 43-yard reception that set up Tennessee’s first touchdown on the opening drive. Burks finished with 7 receptions for 111 yards, both career highs. Robert Woods chipped in with 6 catches for 69 yards. QB Analysis: Tannehill was very efficient. Most of his big plays came from play action, with the Packers focusing on blocking Henry. He delivered a perfect pass to Burks on the big play and to Chigoziem Okonkwo on the other play, then stuck the needle between two defenders to Hooper for a 16-yard touchdown. Tannehill’s pass hits his receiver quickly, giving him an opportunity to gain yardage after the catch. It was his second consecutive game with at least 250 passing yards and two touchdown passes. Pivotal play: The Packers closed the gap to 14-9 on Mason Crosby’s 39-yard field goal attempt. Tannehill found Okonkwo for a 31-yard completion 2 plays after the kick return. Okonkwo dragged a Tannehill pass and stayed alert as Packer’s safety Darnell Savage fell to the ground after being bitten on the path below and leaving him wide open. The game turned over after Tennessee was pinned back at their own 12-yard line. Radar stats showed that Henry had LaDainian Tomlinson, Adrian Peterson, Shaun Alexander and Michael Turner. Next match: vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Nov 27Stacy Revere/Getty ImagesGreen Bay Packers Goodnight Green Bay. It probably isn’t there yet. The good vibes around the Packers lasted all four days after snapping a five-game losing streak by beating the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. At 4-7, the Packers may have one more loss this season. One of the few good things to come out of this game was the consistent appearance of rookie receiver Christian Watson, who placed him in the top 5 with two touchdown catches in the last two games. Watson recorded 48 yards on 4 catches and 2 scores. • Derrick Henry • Fueled by high school haters • When will Packers QB Love get his chance? • Oral history when the Jets last beat the Pats • One glitch in Geno Smith’s stellar season • Why each team was able to win the AFC East eye-popping NextGen stats: Watson’s 14-yard touchdown catch in a tight window It was the definition of a throw. According to NFL NextGen Stats, Watson was half a yard from Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton. That’s the fewest intervals among Rodgers’ 55 touchdown passes over the past two seasons. A coverage stop on rookie tight end Okonkwo for 31 yards, a missed tackle on a 42-yard screen pass to Henry, and then a full dupe on a jump pass from Henry to Hooper all happened on the same drive in the third quarter. It resulted in a game-breaking touchdown. In a way, the breakdown has been the talk of defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s unit for most of the season. Cobb had a team high in receptions (6) and yards (73), and he also returned a punt and recovered an Aaron Jones fumble that helped the Packers score their first touchdown of the game. Cobb has missed the last four games while on injured reserve with a sprained ankle. He was activated to the roster hours before kickoff. According to Radar stats, Thursday marked the Packers’ fifth straight losing streak as a favourite, the longest losing streak as a favourite in a single season. Upcoming game: November 1, 27 at the Eagles.
