In Seattle, Titans rediscover their identity and get a W in a tough spot

SEATTLE – Through three halves of football, the Titans had given people sufficient cause for significant concern.

In 30 minutes and 5:15 of bonus time at Lumen Field, however, the Titans showed us who they think they are and expect to be.

The third and fourth quarters plus overtime produced a 33-30 win over a high-quality Seahawks team and got them to 1-1.

As things turned, they did so with a predictable dose of Derrick Henry carries and offensive patience and an unpredictable measure of MyCole Pruitt and Henry receptions. A defense that has suffered some big busts and allowed plays of 68, 63 and 51 yards clamped down. The last four times Seattle had the ball, the Seahawks managed 43 yards, three first downs and no points.

The Titans came back from 24-9. Per CBS, the Seahawks were previously 52-0 at home in games they led by 15.
