Titans' defense bottles up Ravens' rushing game

The Tennessean

The Titans were punched in the face almost as soon as they took the field against the Jaguars last week, rolled by Maurice Jones-Drew and an offense that marched 63 yards for a touchdown.

It set the tone for a game in which the Jaguars pounded out 163 rushing yards, held the ball for almost 40 minutes and converted half of their third-down opportunities.

Hey, maybe a little humiliation is a good thing.

It sure looked like it motivated the Titans in their 26-13 win over the Ravens on Sunday.

The Titans limited Ray Rice and the Ravens to only 45 total rushing yards, surrendered only 24:08 time of possession and allowed only three third-down conversions in 10 attempts.
