The score wasn't as bad as the 59-0 loss at New England in 2009.
But the feeling was worse.
To some people, like Titans' owner Bud Adams, it was the worst ever.
After all, it was a home game.
"In my 50 years of owning an NFL franchise, I am at a loss to recall a regular-season home game that was such a disappointment for myself and fans of the Titans" said Adams.
He probably got the feeling early.
Tennessee fumbled the ball on the first play of the game, went three-and-out on its next two possessions, had its second punt of the game blocked for a touchdown and went three-and-out on their two possessions after that.
Finally after picking up a first-down, the first of the day, Matt Hasselbeck threw a pick-six on the next play. Then on the first play of the next drive, Chris Johnson fumbled which led to another Bears touchdown, followed by another three-and-out by the Titans.
And this was all in the first quarter.
Just as fans settled into their seats for the day, the score was 28-2 before they could finish the first hot dog.
And the Titans turned the ball over four times in the first half.
But after such a sloppy performance, there's nowhere to go but up, so look for the Titans to clean up the turnovers and put forth a much better effort at Miami this week.
Jobs depend on it.
Like Mike Shannahan in his post game press conference after the Redskins' loss to Carolina, Bud Adams said every player would be evaluated over the final seven games, including the practice squad.
The starters better shape up, or ship out.
Meanwhile the Dolphins are 4-4 and Ryan Tannehill has been solid thus far. The rookie has good pocket presence; he stays in the pocket and waits for his receivers to get open, moving effectively and all the while delivering the ball before the defensive line can get their hands on him.
The Dolphins as a team are playing well enough to win but they had the benefit of an extremely easy schedule after the season opener at Houston, and aren't as good as their 3-1 record over the last four games. They were out-gained by 270 yards in the 17-14 win over the Rams and by 121 yards in the 30-9 win at the New York Jets.
The only other decisive win came over Oakland, who had to fly east for an early start.
So with an upcoming game at Miami, what can one assume when predicting the Titans this weekend after such a sloppy performance?
The game looked over after the first quarter and certainly by halftime, but don't forget the Arizona Cardinals in 2008 who were down 34-0 at the Jets and committed seven turnovers en route to a 56-35 loss.
They won the next game by 25 points.
There's an old saying on The Sopranos: "You're only as good as your last envelope."
But don't tell that to the Titans.
They make a bad performance short lived, and recent history proves it.
But the most recent example is almost as short term as the memory of last week.
Tennessee already suffered a 28-point loss earlier this season, and after the 38-10 loss at San Diego, they rebounded to score 44 points and knock off the Detroit Lions at home in overtime.
It wasn't the first time, or even the ninth.
Last season the Titans lost 41-7 at home to the Texans, but came back to win the following game by 17 points.
But nothing was as dramatic as the time before that.
In 2009, the Titans looked down and out, staring the season with an 0-5 record before suffering a 59-0 loss at New England to fall to 0-6.
They won the next five games, starting with a 17-point win over Jacksonville.
As a matter of fact, the last 10 times the Titans lost a game by 25 or more points, they either won or failed to lose the next game by a field goal, all ten times.
The Dolphins are favored by six points.
In that case, look for the Titans to make it 11 in a row and bring home the bacon after their embarrassing loss so they can go into the bye week with momentum and the starters can entertain the extra week off with better job security.
After all, at 89 years old, Bud Adams doesn't need another memory like last week.
Take Tennessee to cover six points
