Titans get first win in over 5 weeksTitans 31 Colts 17 Titans came into the game hyped after a big practice that Jake Locker put together. This practice was a season changer as coach would say. He even told reporters before the game that this game vs the Colts was a season make or break game. Coming into the game 2-5 the Titans had to win to have their name being talked about again. On the first drive fans would get upset as Jake Locker would make a mistake and fire it right to a Colts player and Luck would find Fleener in the endzone. To quickly take the lead, fans would get excited as they Locker would bounce back and fire it to Nate Washington who would spin around a defender, sprint, juke, juke, then find his way into the endzone. Locker said after the game that the play needs to be on SC Top 10. Titans would stuff the Colts offense for the most part. Locker would find Jared Cook in the endzone for a TD to make it 14-7. Colts would get a FG and that would be the end of scoring for the half. Titans running lead by Chris Johnson and Jamie Harper would pound the ball in the 2nd half but the TD would come from Britt as a playaction left him wide open. OLB Will Witherspoon was breaking up plays on D and would finally get a TD as he picked off a drag route and took it to the house. Luck would answer back with a long strike to Fleener and he would outrun the whole D for a TD. The scoring would stop there and Titans would win the game. Harper stepped up having 42 yards on 9 carries as CJ continues to not find the gaps going 59 yards on 18 carries. Jake Locker would go 10/15 240 3 td 3 int. Coach said Locker will have his moments of throwing to the other team, we will stick with him as he is our leader. Titans D would hold Colts to 213 yards and hold Luck to 178 yards 2 td 2 int gg ChaoticUT

A late fourth quarter pick 6 from CB Brandon McDonald sealed the victory for Tampa. Next up, DAAAAA RAAAAIDAS!!! GG controllerabuser
49ers 38 - Cardinals 3
The 49ers defense is hot right now, no question, as they had yet another 5+ turnover performance bringing their season total to 43 takeaways. On the Cardinals first possession, Kolb would fumble and it would be recovered by Aldon Smith inside the Cardinals 20 yard line. The Niners could only get a FG out of the opportunity though, as it looked like the Cards defense would be stout this day, but the Cardinals offense just kept putting the defense in bad spots as Kolb would throw 4 INT's and Beanie Wells would add in a fumble of his own. Kolb threw the ball 33 times, and his favorite target on the season, Larry Fitzgerald was shut down, only catching 3 passes for 33 yards. Kolb had to find a new receiver with Fitzy being bracketed, and so he found Early Doucet who caught 9 balls for over 100 yards. For the Niners, Crabtree and Manningham each had 1 catch, but both were for TD's, Frank Gore went for 88 and 1 TD on the ground, but also fumbled twice, only losing one however. The 49ers head into their bye next week and hope to get a little healthier with some rest as they lost Parys Haralson in this game to torn abdominals, he will be out 4 weeks.
Patriots - 19
Rams - 11
Coolhandreb played nice, and let the Rams stay close.
@ Raiders Travel to Arrow Head and get a much Needed Win 45 - 26 The Raiders traveled to Arrow Head Stadium to face there rivals the Kansas City Chiefs, both teams would be plagued by turnovers as there would be 9 combined 5 TO's for KC. Matt Cassel would throw for over 300 yds and 1 TD but 5 INT's we the difference in the game. The Raiders defense would get 4 sacks and hold KC to only 3 yards rushing. Mike Goodson would have a good day with a 103 yard kick return for a TD, 7 carries for 26 yds and 1 TD. It was a back and forth game early on as both teams were trading TD's but as the turnovers kept mounting the Raiders would capitalize and start to pull away. Raiders move to 3-4 on the year and pull into a 3 way tie for 1st in the AFC West
