It has been a long time since the Tennessee Titans defense has had something to talk about
But after Sunday's dominant effort in a 16-9 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Titans had plenty to say after the game. Tennessee held Pittsburgh to 32 yards rushing, sacked Ben Roethlisberger five times, forced two turnovers and did not allow a third-down conversion in the second half.
Afterwards, a loud comment was heard from the locker room while reporters awaited Coach Mike Munchak's press conference. Per TitanInsider, that comment was "(Expletive) those Terrible Towels."
Later, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, who had two sacks and was a force in the middle of the defense, fired a warning shot at division rival Houston for next week.
“It's a conference game, and we're gonna go out there make sure we put our foot up their (expletive),” Casey said. “That's what we're gonna do. Not holding back at all against whoever we face. That's what we're gonna do all season long.”
If so, it would be a drastic change from last season when Tennessee allowed a franchise-record 471 points.
