    The Tennessee Titans defense showed up again vs the falcons. The defensive unit is giving up alot of yards but seem to turnover the opponent and prevent TDs.
    Week 8 of the omfl regular season kicked off with the game of the week, the Tennessee Titans visited the Atlanta Falcons in a battle of one loss teams. The titans entered the game 5-1 looking to continue the win streak to 4 games and the falcons looked to keep a stranglehold on the NFC south with a 2 game lead 8 weeks in.

    The first quarter was all titans. After a 3 and out by the falcons on their first possession, the titans went on a 10 play drive consisting of 8 runs by CJ and Barber and cap off by a 4 yard CJ rushing TD. Matt Ryan couldnt seem to get on the same page with his WRs as their was many dropped passes and he was getting beat up pretty bad by the titans D. Score at the end of the first quarter 7-0 Titans.

    The titans had the ball to start the second quarter and it looked like their were stringing together another 10 play drive but it stalled in falcons territory and had to kick the FG. Kicker Rob Bironas booted one FG right down the middle and stayed perfect on the season. 10-0 Titans. After another 3 and out forced the falcons to punt, returner hawkins cut back against the grain and returned the punt 89 yards for his second return TD on the season. 17-0 Titans. The falcons finally got their act together and put some plays together and finally Ryans found a wide open WR Blake streaking down the middle and threw the perfect pass for the TD from 49 yards out to make the score 17-7 Titans. The falcons would add a FG late to bring the score at halftime 17-10 Titans.

    The Falcons surged late in the first half to bring it to only a 7 point lead but thats as close as the falcons would get for the rest of the game. CJ got 2 more scores in the 3rd quarter as he caught two TD passes from 74 yards out and 4 yards out. Falcons WR Blake would add another TD for the falcons from 25 yards out to bring to score at the end of the third quarter 31-17 Titans.

    Titans would add 10 more points early in the 4th quarter with another FG by Bironas and a 55 yard TD run right up the gut by FB hall to bring the score to 41-17 Titans. Ryans would connect late to WR Jenkins late for a 35 yard TD but it would be too little too late as the the titans would win the game with a score of 41-24 Titans.

    Titans move to 6-1 on the season and continue to lead the league in points scored per game. After convincingly winning arguable the hardest opponent left on the titans schedule besides AFC south rival Jacksonville Jaguars, it is quite possible for the Titans to get 14 wins and put pressure on the 3 AFC east teams with 1 or fewer losses for one of the two wildcard spots.

    GG Obsian, those couple turnovers killed you when you were trying to come back and it seemed they were always right after you got some sort of break. GG again and GL the rest of the season!
