Titans head into Seattle licking Week 1 wounds

Things couldn’t have gone much better for the Seattle Seahawks in their season opener. And things couldn’t have gone much worse for the Tennessee Titans.Which should make an intriguing matchup in Week 2 as the Titans travel to Seattle for a game Sunday afternoon.The Titans, who reached the AFC title game in 2019 and won the AFC South last year, played host to Arizona in the opener and suffered a 38-13 defeat as Ryan Tannehill was sacked six times.”It is a wake-up call for us,” Titans offensive lineman Rodger Saffold said. “You can’t just show up and win a game, so I am hoping we take this and we come out with our hair on fire (in Seattle).”Derrick Henry, the two-time defending NFL rushing leader who had 2,027 yards and 17 touchdowns last season, managed 58 yards on 17 carries as the Titans accumulated just 248 yards of total offense.”We’ve just got to play better,” Henry said. “Looking lackadaisical, just walking around, not playing how we play. Not playing up to the standard we all talk about that we try to do each and every day.”The Titans allowed Arizona’s Kyler Murray to throw for 289 yards and four TDs, which doesn’t bode well considering they’ll have to face Russell Wilson this week.”We’re not going to sit here, mope around, keep our heads down,” Titans safety Kevin Byard said. “We’re going to keep battling, keep fighting and get ready for Seattle.”Wilson was 18 of 23 for 254 yards and four touchdowns as the Seahawks won their opener 28-16 at Indianapolis in the first game for new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron.
