Mike Munchak’s first win with the Tennessee Titans couldn’t have been more unlikely.
Matt Hasselbeck threw for 358 yards and a touchdown and Javon Ringer scored on a 10-yard run as the Titans shocked the visiting Baltimore Ravens 26-13 Sunday.
Kenny Britt followed up last week’s big performance with nine more catches for 135 yards and a 4-yard touchdown reception. Chris Johnson rushed for only 53 yards on 24 carries for Tennessee.
Rob Bironas booted four field goals as the Titans were surprisingly in control throughout the contest. Tennessee owned a near 200-yard edge in total yards over Baltimore (1-1), which hammered Pittsburgh a week ago.
The Titans (1-1) hassled Joe Flacco and the Ravens all day. Flacco hit Ray Rice for a 31-yard score to give Baltimore a 7-3 lead in the first quarter but managed little else.
Billy Cundiff accounted for the rest of the Ravens’ scoring with a pair of field goals.
Flacco also threw a pair of interceptions and was sacked twice. The Titans also limited Rice to just 43 yards rushing.
Munchak took over for Jeff Fisher, who was fired after 16 seasons with the club at the end of last season.
