Watch: Broncos get burned by Tennessee’s lead-taking flea-flicker
Nov 13, 2022, 1:31 PM
The Denver Broncos’ 10-point lead is now gone, with the Tennessee Titans scoring just before the half and then coming out in the third quarter, scoring again.
The Titans got Derrick Henry cooking, rushing for more yards on his first two carries of the second half than he did in all of the first. Henry checked out for a moment to get looked at, but Tennessee did enough to establish the run, and when he got back on the field, they broke out a gadget play.
Ryan Tannehill and Henry combined on a flea-flicker to find Nick Westbrook-Ikhine on a 63-yard strike, taking the lead at 14-10.

The Titans quickly took advantage of a bad Corliss Waitman punt a few plays before the touchdown throw.
Denver will need to make a late comeback against the Titans to get to 4-5; all three of their wins have come via fourth-quarter comebacks.
