    When the Titans failed to recover Detroit’s onside kick late in Sunday’s contest, it marked the first time since Dec. of 2008 that an opponent (Indianapolis) had recovered an onside kick against Tennessee.

    Jason Hanson’s kick went cleanly through the Titans’ first defensive wave and then bounced past Damian Williams. The ball was recovered by Detroit’s Amari Spievey with 16 seconds left in regulation.

    “I just misjudged the ball,” Williams said. “I waited for the second bounce and I thought it was going left. It went right and they recovered it.”

    Williams rebounded with a critical overtime reception, making a 13-yard catch on third-and-10 that took the ball to Detroit’s 16.

    “My initial thought (after failing to recover the onside kick) was I had to be the person to win the game,” Williams said. “Had (the Titans lost), I’d have felt I was the player who lost the game. That was my first thought.”

    Appreciate the accountability taken here by DW. His catch was clutch.

    No doubt. Accountability, acknowledging fault, and personal responsibility goes a LONG way in my book. CJ needs to learn that lesson.

    See this is why I like this guy and hope he sticks around.
    He's good enough to play and seems like a really good guy. Too bad for him theres 3 other receivers better.
