Teams: Tennessee Titans (6-3, Tied for 2nd in AFC South) at Denver Broncos (4-5, Tied for 2nd in AFC West)

Location: Invesco Field @ Mile High - Denver, CO

       

Broncos Sixth Drive --

--Broncos get the ball to start the second half, having gone 4/4 on drives in the first half, not counting the play that ended the half...
--In a game that could easily be 28-10, the Broncos inability to score touchdowns in the red-zone give the Titans life. A score to start the second half would be a nice way to keep the pressure on Young...
--Would love to see Andre Hall get a shot at returning a kick-off tonight, but Bironas is unlikely to give him that chance.
--Alot more football being talked in the booth tonight compared to the Packers game...Nice to see and hear..
--Cutler throws one in the ground...The Broncos need to find a way to keep Cutler in the feel of the game during halftime..
--Nice throw and catch there, and Brandon Marshall has his first catch...
--Titans are stacking the line, begging the Broncos to throw the football..
--Another run, another stuff....3rd and five...
--Cutler looking for Marshall now, and after the high snap Cutler does a great job picking up the first down.
--Young running hard, keeping the Broncos in manageable 3rd down situations...
--We really didn't need that...Young getting rolled up in the pile...
--Marshall into the end-zone for the Touchdown and the Broncos strike again!!!BRONCOS 27 - Titans 10

Titans Sixth Drive --

--Now the defense needs to show up and make a stop....
--Oops...Big Sam Adams gives the Titans a first down...
--Young a little late on that pass. I will say it again and again...Young cannot play quarterback for 60 minutes...
--Assisted by a couple Titans' drops, and the Broncos force the Titans to punt...
--Nevermind...Glenn Martinez with a HUGE fumble, and the Tians are right back in business...
--Young gets the Titans inside the 10, and the Titans have a little hop in his step...
--Young gets in the end-zone..but the refs don't give it to him
--The Titans are stopped on 3rd down, but a Denver timeout nullifies the play. Now the Titans can challenge, and if they do it should be a TD...
--Young gets hurt on a play that doesn't count...and Tennessee is challenging the play prior. It should be a Touchdown.
--Touchdown Titans, though Tennessee may have lost alot more on a play that doesn't matter.
--BRONCOS 27 - Titans 17

Broncos Seventh Drive --

--Nice return for Hall gives the offense nice field position...
--Titans getting physically beaten tonight. Nice to see....
--Keith Bullock showing his speed around the outside. So much for the lack of penalties. A big holding penalty on Erik Pears.
--That will probably do it for Selvin Young, whose showing some toughness in trying to keep playing...
--Come on!! A screen to Cecil Sapp???Big 3rd down here...
--Well timed blitz by the Titans and the Broncos have to punt for the first time. Momentum changing in favor of the Titans..

Titans Seventh Drive --

--Another golden opportunity for the Broncos but they are unable to come up with the fumble..
--Big run by White, and the Broncos defense looks a bit weary, spending alot of time on the field tonight.
--Another penalty on the Broncos, the second on Sam Adams. Orange and Blue getting sloppy now...
--Titans picking up alot of yardage on the ground now...
--Lynch looks hurt again...This is simply tough to watch....
--This game is slowly becoming the type of game the Titans want to play...
--Another fumble...The 4th tonight by the Titans, but the Titans are able to recover...
--A big third down will welcome us to the 4th quarter....

END OF THIRD QUARTER -- BRONCOS 27 - TITANS 17
