How they scored: Titans 47, Packers 25
TENNESSEE: DeMarco Murray, 75-yard run (Ryan Succop kick), 13:17 left. How they scored: Demetri Goodson slid into the end zone as he attempted to down a punt at the 2 so the Titans started from the 20. “If I could do it back I’d probably do it a little different,” said Goodson. After an encroachment penalty on Mike Daniels, Murray sailed through left tackle past Daniels and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the end zone. “Just an inside zone to the left,” LG Brian Schwenke said. “They went the other way because of our backfield action.” Said Daniels: “If I do my job that play doesn’t happen.” The drive: One play, 75 yards, :11. Titans 7, Packers 0.
TENNESSEE: Delanie Walker, 10-yard pass from Murray (Succop kick), 6:58 left. How they scored: On third and 14, Tajae Sharpe caught a corner route for 21. On the next play, Walker beat Kentrell Brice on a corner route for 41. “Basically a ‘sell’ route,” said Walker. “We were looking for one-on-one coverage. They gave us that. Marcus had a blitz and he threw it. Good route, caught it, broke a tackle and down the sideline I go.” On second and 8, Walker came out of the backfield and Murray hit him behind the deepest defender, Morgan Burnett, for the TD. “The corner (Quinten Rollins) and 42 (Burnett) bit up,” Walker said. “They thought it was a running play that we run a lot. It’s a great play when you’ve got a good running game. It’s hard to defend that.” The drive: Seven plays, 85 yards, 3:26. Titans 14, Packers 0.
TENNESSEE: Anthony Fasano, 9-yard pass from Marcus Mariota (Succop kick), :08 left. How they scored: Walker hauled in passes for first downs measuring 14, 14 and 19 yards. On the next play, Mariota threw left to Fasano for the TD. “Play-action,” said Walker. “Wide-open. Nobody on him.” The drive: Nine plays, 71 yards, 5:17. Titans 21, Packers 0.
GREEN BAY: Jordy Nelson, 1-yard pass from Aaron Rodgers (Mason Crosby kick), 10:49 left. How they scored: Turning to a no-huddle attack, Rodgers hit 6 of 6 for 55 yards.

TENNESSEE: Rishard Matthews, 32-yard pass from Mariota (Succop kick), 8:45 left. How they scored: On third and 2, Murray beat Joe Thomas on a wheel route for 35. “I got picked but it was my fault,” said Thomas. “I should have lined up my coverage better. I put myself in a bad situation there.” On the next play, Matthews came off motion and beat Micah Hyde on a take-off in the end zone for the TD. “The safety rolled to my side,” said Walker. “That left one-on-one coverage with Matthews.” The drive: Four plays, 75 yards, 2:04. Titans 28, Packers 7.

The drive: Ten plays, 78 yards, 4:12. Titans 35, Packers 22.
TENNESSEE: Sharpe, 33-yard pass from Mariota (pass failed), 6:27 left. How they scored: Daniels was penalized 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct after a play that would have put the Titans in a third-and-8 hole.
