Titans making the most of their week in Arizona

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

The Tennessee Titans are mostly glad to be away from Nashville for a week of practice in Arizona. The Titans opted to stay in the Phoenix area and have practices at Arizona State after their game against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. From the team hotel to practice, the trip has allowed the Titans to spend time together off the field as well.

Viral support for bullying victims like Keaton Jones won’t fix the bigger problem

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

When a video of Keaton Jones, a bullied boy crying to his mother about the torment he faced at his Tennessee middle school, went viral late last week, celebrities rallied in support. Actor Chris Evans, Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker, and singer Katy Perry were just a few of the famous names who sent messages of support to Keaton in the days after his mother posted the video to social media. As quickly as the outpouring of support arrived, so too did the backlash — photos spotted online of his mother and other family members posing near Confederate flags sparked an uproar, causing some of Keaton’s online supporters to turn on him.

49ers take on role of spoiler down the stretch

Thursday, December 14th, 2017

The 49ers' three victories over their past four games have come against teams in the bottom quarter of the league. The competition gets a lot more challenging for Jimmy Garoppolo and Co., as the 49ers close out the season against three teams currently jockeying for playoff positioning. First up, the Tennessee Titans, who come to Levi's Stadium on Sunday as the current No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs with an 8-5 record.

‘Skins aim to snap skid vs. wounded Cardinals

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

The Washington Redskins' goal for the remaining three weeks is to stop a disappointing season from becoming a disastrous one. Officially out of the playoff race and losers of two straight games to the Dallas Cowboys and San Diego Chargers by a combined score of 68-27, the Redskins (5-8) now face three teams with losing records, beginning with the Arizona Cardinals (6-7) on Sunday at FedEx Field. The bad losses have only magnified the talk about the long-term value of quarterback Kirk Cousins and the future of the free agent to be.

Titans bid to fix ailing offense vs. 49ers

Wednesday, December 13th, 2017

As they won six of seven games to join a first-place tie with Jacksonville in the AFC South, the Tennessee Titans did so while walking a tightrope not even a Wallenda might attempt. Three times in that span, Tennessee wiped out double-figure deficits and made key plays in the fourth quarter to win. The flimsy foundation finally fell apart last week in Arizona, but with a twist.

Waiver Wire: Week 15

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

As a reminder, the drop list consists of players who are no longer must-owns, recommended adds are available in at least 50 percent of Yahoo leagues, the watch list consists of players worth keeping an eye on, and deep cuts are players owned in five percent or fewer of Yahoo leagues. Of course, stashing players like Josh Doctson for the later rounds makes sense if bench space is available, but do not be afraid to cut a bench stash to pick up someone with less upside who will actually help get a win this week. Before you ask, Aaron Rodgers is owned in 81 percent of Yahoo leagues.

Titans latest NFL team to choose week on road over jet lag

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

The Tennessee Titans are out of town this week, and veteran linebacker Brian Orakpo couldn't be happier. The franchise decided once the NFL schedule came out in mid-April to spend the week between back-to-back road games against the Cardinals and the San Francisco 49ers in Arizona. Philadelphia spent the past week in the Los Angeles area after a loss in Seattle - and then beat the Rams.

Who is Kimberly Jones? A Viral Dream Might Be Turning Into a Nightmare for Keaton and his Mother

Monday, December 11th, 2017

Keaton Jones became an overnight celebrity this weekend. The sixth grader from Knoxville, Tennessee, appeared in a video on Friday that was posted by his mother, Kimberly Jones, on Facebook. With Kimberly’s Facebook page no longer set to public, Newsweek could not immediately determine if the screenshots of Kimberly’s allegedly racist social media posts were authentic or if the mother of the bullied child was perhaps being cyberbullied herself.

Mariota struggles in Titans’ 12-7 loss to Cardinals

Sunday, December 10th, 2017

Marcus Mariota's answers were clipped, many one word. The Tennessee Titans lost a game they should have won and their quarterback shouldered most of the blame. ''Frustration is an understatement,'' Mariota said following Tennessee's 12-7 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday.
