Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry star as Titans take down Packers in icy Lambeau Field

The Frozen Tundra was normally home-court advantage for the Green Bay Packers, but that was not the case Thursday night.

The Tennessee Titans entered Lambeau Field and beat the Green Bay Packers 27-17.

The snow was falling and the chill was in the teens at Lambeau Field, but that didn’t stop Ryan Tannehill.

On a 3rd and 7th on the first drive of the night, he found rookie Treylon Burks for 43 yards to continue the drive. Five plays later, he found Dontrell Hilliard for a 14-yard touchdown to give the Titans a 7–0 lead.

After both teams traded punts, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers went on an 11-play, 78-yard drive that concluded with a 14-yard score from rookie Christian Watson, who scored three touchdowns last week. But the PAT was blocked, so the Titans had a one-run lead.

The Titans responded with an 18-play drive that went all the way inside the Packers’ five-yard line, but Derrick Henry loaded on 4th and 1st to turn the ball over on downs. However, the Packers punted from their own end zone, giving the Titans excellent field position. In their final drive of the half, Henry found the end zone to give Tennessee a 14-6 lead into the half.

The Packers opened the second half with a field goal to make it a five-point game, but again it was Henry who got things done. After taking a reception 42 yards inside the Green Bay 10-yard line, he took a handoff two plays later, but actually jumped and threw it to a wide open Austin Hooper in the end zone. The ensuing PAT dove off the upright, but it was a 20-9 Titans lead.

However, Rodgers marched on his next drive, completing 28- and 23-yard passes before finding Watson back in the end zone. With the Titans missing the PAT, the Packers went for two, and Aaron Jones reeled it in to make it 20-17 Tennessee. However, Tannehill remained unfazed by the conditions in Wisconsin. After a 32-yard reception by Robert Woods, Hooper caught his second touchdown of the night three plays later, this one for 16 yards to make it a 27-17 Titans lead.

Tannehill threw a pick in the fourth, but the Packers were unable to capitalize. In their four drives in the fourth quarter, they went three-and-outs twice and reversed it twice on downs.

The Titans quarterback finished with 333 yards through the air on 22-of-27 passing. Burks finished with seven catches for 111 yards, while Henry ran for 87 yards on 28 carries. As for Green Bay, Rodgers completed 24 of his 39 attempts for 227 yards. Randall Cobb led all Packers receivers with six catches and 73 yards.
