Champions at last

The Titans are the AFC South champs. It was a dominating victory over the team that competed with the Titans for last year’s final playoff berth.

It was the third dual-100 yard game of the year (SI box score says White had 99 rushing yards). LenDale White and Chris Johnson have an outside chance of being the first dual 1000-yard rushers for an NFL team in more than 20 years. Johnson became the third 1,000-yard rushing rookie in franchise history. Both Eddie George and Earl Campbell finished their careers north of 10,000 career rushing yards. Have we seen the next one?

It was a sloppy victory. The Browns led 6-0 due to two Collins’ inteceptions and a White fumble. Collins hit eight different receivers. The defense stood up and didn’t give up a touchdown. Ken Dorsey never had a chance.

Most “division champs” merchandise is premature at best, since the real goal is winning a league championship. It has been six years, so I might get a shirt. I want to commemorate this season that’s far from over.
