Scout's Take: How the Ravens played into the Titans' hands

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- This was a game of who wanted it the most.

The Titans proved that they wanted the game more than the Ravens. Jonathon Ogden, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed would be embarrassed by the Ravens' lack of “want to” at the end of the game.
