Titans vs. Lions: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent INovember 27, 2016

Detroit Lions running back Mikel Leshoure became the first Lions back to rush for 100 yards in his debut since Billy Sims did it back in 1980 (h/t CBSLions), but his team lost to the Tennessee Titans in overtime by a score of 44-41.

Tennessee's Jake Locker was spectacular, completing 29-of-42 passes for 378 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also rushed for 35 yards on four carries.

While Locker was terrific, the same cannot be said for Chris Johnson, who had his third straight terrible performance, rushing for just 24 yards on 14 carries.

Matthew Stafford played well, but his afternoon was cut short when he went down with a "strained leg muscle," according to NFL Network's Michael Fabiano. Stafford threw one touchdown before Shaun Hill replaced him and threw two of his own, including a successful Hail Mary pass at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime. 

Calvin Johnson had a monster game, hauling in 10 catches for 164 yards and one touchdown, making his fantasy owners happy.

But it wasn't enough.

The biggest play of the game came when the Titans paid homage to the franchise's signature moment, when they successfully recreated the Music City Miracle in the fourth quarter (h/t CBS Sports).

The Titans now move to 1-2 and will go on the road to face the Houston Texans, while the Lions fall to 1-2. They will now prepare to host the Minnesota Vikings in Week 4.
