Game summaries

Week 1: at Pittsburgh Steelers


The Steelers were on a disappointing run; Tennessee took advantage of this in 2012 and beat them at home by a score of 26-23, despite finishing at 6-10, while the Steelers went 8-8. In 2013, the Titans traveled to Pittsburgh for their season opener against the rival Steelers. They got off to a strong start, scoring a touchdown and 3 field goals for a 16-2 lead, as the Steelers could only manage a safety. In the fourth quarter, the Steelers cut the Titans' lead to 16-9 after they scored a touchdown. However, Tennessee ran out the clock, ensuring themselves a victory. With the convincing win, the Titans started the season at 1-0, but since the Colts beat the Raiders, 21-17, and the Texans later defeated the Chargers, 31-28, Tennessee tied for 1st place in the AFC South, since the Jacksonville Jaguars were humiliated, 28-2, at home by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Week 2: at Houston Texans

Week 3: vs. San Diego Chargers

For the first time since 1992 the Titans franchise defeated the Chargers, winning on a 34-yard touchdown throw from Jake Locker to Justin Hunter with 15 seconds to go. Locker finished with 367 all-purpose yards - 299 passing yards, 68 rushing yards. Chris Johnson finished with 90 rushing yards.

Week 4: vs. New York Jets

The Titans forced four Jets turnovers; Jake Locker threw three touchdowns off turnovers as the Titans led 24-6 at the half. Locker was knocked out of the game in the third quarter following hits from Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples, suffering a right hip injury; a subsequent MRI showed no major damage to Locker's hip and he was sidelined for the next two games. Ryan Fitzpatrick finished the game, throwing a 77-yard score to Nate Washington. Geno Smith of the Jets was intercepted twice, but the most-popularized play came when he fumbled behind his back at the Titans goalline and Karl Klug fell on the touchdown. Tennessee won 38-13.
