Titans end Saint’s three game win streak in overtime

The Saints offense seemed to pick up right where it left off after last week’s impressive 52 point outing.

The Saints took an early 14-3 lead behind two Drew Brees touchdown passes to Brandin Cooks and Josh Hill. The Saints led the Titans 21-17 at the half.

The Titans defense clamped down as they went on to outscore the Saints 11-7 in the second half behind a late Mariota fourth-quarter touchdown pass and a two-point conversion completion to Delanie Walker.

With 1:01 to go in the fourth quarter, Saint’s kicker Kai Forbath had his 46 yard potential game-winning field goal blocked. Neither team could do much after, and the two teams went into overtime tied 28-28.

On the first possession of overtime Mariota led his team to victory as he produced a nine play, 80 yard drive that was capped off by a five yard touchdown pass to Anthony Fasano.

The Saints 34-28 lose to the Titans ended the Saint’s three game win streak.

The (4-5) Saints travel to Washington to take on the (3-5) Washington Redskins on Sunday, Nov. 15th at noon.
