Somewhere in Central Indiana on Sunday, Carson Wentz must have yelled out, “See?! It’s not just me!”
Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford made a very similar play as what Wentz did last week against the Titans, trying to spin out of a sack in the end zone and blindly throwing the ball to no receiver in particular in Sunday’s game in Los Angeles between LA and Tennessee. David Long picked off the pass and returned it to the Rams’ 2-yard line. One play later, a Ryan Tannehill touchdown pass to Geoff Swaim gave the Titans a second-quarter lead.
Last week, it was Elijah Molden. This week, it was Long.
On the next drive, Stafford gave it up again, throwing an interception to Kevin Byard who returned the ball for an easy touchdown.
Just like that, it was 14-3.
Wentz, of course, two critical interceptions last week; the one to Molden gave the Titans a fourth quarter lead, while an overtime interception thrown to Byard set up the Titans for the game-winning field goal.
With Derrick Henry out, the Titans defense stepped up to the plate in the first half and produced against the Rams on Sunday.
