Tennessee Titans at Seattle Seahawks: 'Hawks win 20-13

The Tennessee Titans traveled to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. Despite having a respectable 3-2 record the Titans came in as underdogs to the 4-1 ‘Hawks.

The Titans were the first to get on the board. Following a 9 play, 72-yard drive the Titans were with in field goal range and Rob Bironas kicked a 38 yard field goal.

The Seahawks needed a few drives to get on the board themselves. It took them 12 plays to march 74 yards down the field and find the end zone. Running back Marshawn Lynch scored on a one-yard run with 2:46 left in the second quarter.

The Tennessee Titans called 7 plays, but only drained the clock of a minute and 47 seconds. They lined up to punt the ball away and fumbled it giving the Seahawks great field position and time to work with.

The Seahawks managed to get all the way down to the 4 yard line with two seconds left in the half and lined up to take a field goal. Holder Chris Maragos mishandled the snap, picked the ball up and ran, only to fumble the ball. Titans cornerback Jason McCourty picked up the fumble and returned it 77 yards for a touchdown to give the Titans a 10-7 lead heading into the half.

The second half was pretty much all Seahawks after that. Ten minutes into the third quarter the Seahawks got into range and a 31 yard field goal from Steven Hauschka tied the game.

Early in the fourth quarter they were back in range and Hauschka kicked a 29-yard field goal to give them the a 13-10 lead. About four minutes later Marshawn Lynch scored again on a three yard run.

The Titans managed to get down the field and kick a field goal with 2:21 left to make it a one possession game. The Titans elected to not go for an onside kick and instead kicked deep. It was returned for 40 yards. The Titans tried to get a three and out and use their three time outs to save the clock but they couldn’t stop the ‘Hawks offense and Seattle escaped with a win.
