Titans 19, Packers 16, OT

The Packers just could not pull it out.  Mistakes doomed them late in the game, along with the fact they couldn’t capitalize on numerous opportunities and they let the Tennessee Titans set the pace of the game en route to a 19-16 heartbreaking loss in overtime.

Statistically, the Packers had a good game.  Aaron Rodgers threw for over 300 yards.  Ryan Grant had 86 yards on 20 carries, an amount of carries that would have netted him only 15 yards earlier in the season.  Donald Driver had his best game of the season so far with 136 yards and a touchdown on seven catches, while Greg Jennings had 79 yards on three catches.  The defense held up nicely, keeping Kerry Collins under 200 yards passing and keeping the dynamic duo of Chris Johnson and LenDale White stymied for the most part, except for White’s 54-yard scamper in the game.

The Packers just couldn’t capitalize.  I didn’t watch this game because I missed the beginning of it and every time I would start watching something would go wrong, but from what I gather the Packers just couldn’t take advantage of two weeks of planning and rest to beat a team that was looking for a let down.

Rodgers said it best: “No moral victories.”

    yeah, that was a close one. you guys are definitely the best team we’ve faced all year. i just can’t believe they’re 4-4. a much better team than the record shows.

    I take a moral victory from that no matter what Rodgers says.  The Titans are a good team and we played them well.  The North should be there’s for the taking if they play that way for the rest of the year.

    “There’s”?!?!  That’s the second time today I did that.

    “Theirs” would be more like it.

    At 4-4 and a game back, it’s really hard to take the moral victory. They need to put up big against the Vikes next Sunday. I expect it to happen, too.
