Tennessee Titans score vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Live updates for A.J. Brown reunion game
The Tennessee Titans face off against one of their most notable cast-off stars in a battle between two playoff contenders.
The Titans (7-4) visit the Philadelphia Eagles (10-1) at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday (noon, Fox). Though the matchup pits two division leaders against one another, the main story on Titans' fans minds will be the battle against Eagles receiver A.J. Brown, who the Titans traded to Philadelphia in April after they were unable to come to terms with a contract extension to keep the receiver in Nashville.
Brown has 53 catches for 831 yards and seven touchdowns this season. All Titans wide receivers have combined for three touchdown catches this season.
While the Eagles have the most rushing touchdowns of any offense in the NFL, the Titans have allowed the fewest rushing touchdowns of any defense in the league.

14:07 left: Ryan Tannehill sacked. Titans three and out to start the second half. Scheduled post each week it seems.
HALFTIME: Titans down 21-10 but do get the ball to start the second half. They'll need a score out of the half to keep up with Jalen Hurts and the Eagles offense.

12:03 left: Jalen Hurts to DeVonta Smith for a 34-yard touchdown strike over the middle.
A.J. Brown vs. Kristian Fulton looks to be a matchup, but if Roger McCreary and company struggle against the 2020 Heisman Trophy winner, it's going to be a long day for the Titans defense. Titans pass rush also failed to make an impact on the opening drive.
Eagles 7, Titans 0.
