A.J. Brown turns Titans' opening scoring drive into his own personal highlight reel
Coming into the Wild Card Weekend, A.J. Brown was a player to watch for the Tennessee Titans as they looked to knock off the Baltimore Ravens.
Brown made a 10-yard touchdown catch to open the scoring as he boxed out Marlon Humphrey to cap a 10-play, 70-yard drive in 6:11. It was one of three catches for 52 yards for Brown on the opening drive when he was targeted four times. Humphrey even complained about offensive pass interference on the touchdown, which fell on deaf ears by the officials.
Brown also made a dazzling over the shoulder catch on third down and 3 for a 28-yard gain. All told, QB Ryan Tannehill was 6-of-6 for 70 yards on the drive.
Brown has been in the middle of some big plays recently for the Titans, who entered the postseason at 11-5. Last week, it was Brown’s 52-yard reception which setup a 51-yard field goal to knock off the Houston Texans. That helped the Titans secure their first home playoff game since the 2008 season as they won the AFC South title for the first time in 12 years.
