Twitter reacts to brutal late-game sequence from the Titans

For the most part, the Tennessee Titans dominated the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday afternoon in London. But it certainly didn’t show on the scoreboard.

Down 20-13 late in the fourth quarter, Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota hit tight end Luck Stocker for a one-yard touchdown on fourth-and-goal. Most figured Tennessee would kick the field goal to force overtime.

Not to be. First-year head coach Mike Vrabel showed himself to be a gambling man and went for what would’ve been a game-winning two-point conversion. Tennessee’s initial attempt failed, but a holding on Chargers cornerback Casey Hayward gave the team another chance from the one.

For some reason, the Titans decided to go empty backfield after having put up 164 rushing yards in the game. It failed miserably with Mariota’s pass falling incomplete, leading to a third consecutive loss for Tennessee.

Obviously, this sequence of events had the Twitter world in an uproar.
