Titans Fall Behind Fast; Lose Badly to Eagles 43-24

The Titans got off to an awful start Sunday vs the Eagles, and things didn’t really get much better as the team fell to 2-9 with a 43-24 loss in Philadelphia.

Josh Huff started the long day for the Titans with a 107-yard kickoff return, and LeSean McCoy ran all over the Titans for 130 yards and a score.

Rookie QB Zach Mettenberger had 345 yards passing and two TDs and Delanie Walker had 155 yards receiving for the Titans, who were coming off a 27-24 loss Monday night to the Steelers.

Huff ran up the right side, broke a tackle inside the 30, cut to the right sideline and stiff-armed a defender at the Titans 20 on his way to the end zone for his first career TD.

His return was the longest in franchise history and the 10th non-offensive touchdown for Philadelphia this season.

After the first of four straight three-and-outs to start the game by the Titans, the Eagles went up 14-0 on a 4-yard TD run by Darren Sproles.

McCoy had a 2-yard TD run in the second quarter. Mark Sanchez fired a 14-yard TD pass to James Casey in the third quarter.

The Titans didn’t get a first down until Mettenberger threw a 40-yard TD pass to Justin Hunter on their fifth offensive series. Brandon Ghee intercepted Sanchez at the Eagles 30 to set up the score that cut it to 17-7.

Mettenberger tossed a 68-yard pass to Delanie Walker to start the next drive to set up Shonn Greene’s 2-yard TD run, cutting the deficit to 20-14.

Cody Parkey kicked field goals of 36, 26, 35, 40 and 50 yards but his 49-yard attempt hit the post at the end of the first half to snap his successful streak at 17.

The Eagles sacked Mettenberger five times, including 2 1/2 by Connor Barwin and two for Trent Cole.

    When do the Titans not lose badly?

    You can take the Oilers out of Houston, but you will never take the Oilers out of the Titans. Forever disappointing underachievers. Forever Oilers.
