Derrick Henry’s 29-yard touchdown run with 5:21 left in overtime Sunday capped a Tennessee Titans’ rally from a 21-10 third quarter deficit as they stopped the Baltimore Ravens 30-24 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
Henry, who finished with 133 yards on 28 carries, jump-cut from left to right around a tackler and sped into the end zone for his second walk-off score of the year. It finished a 73-yard drive that started after the Ravens (6-4) went 3-and-out with their overtime possession.
Baltimore forced overtime when Justin Tucker converted his third field goal of the day, a 29-yarder with 16 seconds left in regulation.
Ryan Tannehill completed 22 of 31 passes for 259 yards with two touchdowns and an interception for Tennessee, which improved to 7-3. Lamar Jackson connected on 17 of 29 throws for 186 yards with a touchdown and a pick for the Ravens.
The action started before the game did, as the teams engaged in a pregame altercation. Baltimore coach John Harbaugh took umbrage to Tennessee players gathering on the Ravens’ logo at midfield. Harbaugh, Titans coach Mike Vrabel and cornerback Malcolm Butler exchanged words.
Perhaps invigorated by pregame jaw-jacking, Tennessee initiated scoring on Tannehill’s 1-yard touchdown pass to Jonnu Smith at the 8:37 mark of the first quarter. The 79-yard drive was kickstarted by a 39-yard pass interference infraction on Baltimore.
The Ravens got their offense going after that, although two straight forays into the end zone ended in 30- and 27-yard field goals by Tucker. A third trip inside the Titans’ 20 produced J.K. Dobbins’ 2-yard scoring plunge with 5:22 left in the second quarter, giving Baltimore its first lead. Stephen Gostkowski toed a 40-yard field goal in the final minute, slicing Tennessee’s halftime deficit to 14-10.
But Baltimore increased the lead to 21-10 when Jackson lofted a 31-yard touchdown pass to tight end Mark Andrews with 9:39 left in the third quarter. The Titans responded when Gostkowski connected on 40- and 22-yard field goals, the latter one bringing them within five points with 11:13 remaining in the game.
