Randy Bullock nailed a 44-yard game-winning field goal on the drive following San Francisco tying the game on a 2-yard touchdown pass from Jimmy Garoppolo to Brandon Aiyuk. Titans coach Mike Vrabel told reporters after the game the win underscored the team’s resiliency all season.
"You've got to be willing to take some shots and willing to bleed and be able to taste it and come back swinging," Vrabel said, via the Titans’ website. "And that's why it's an honor to coach this football team. The guys care, do whatever they can do. It's not always perfect. They took care of the football, complementary football.
"I mean ... we had the funeral for the Titans. You know, it was yesterday or today. But we're not dead yet. We'll come back, and we'll play the Dolphins next, right? That's who we got in 10 days. This weekend is going to feel really good. I'm happy our players can rest and recover after getting a victory. Merry Christmas, guys."
The Titans picked up their 10th win of the season but it wasn’t too long ago the team lost Derrick Henry for the regular season and had lost three out of four after winning six-in-a-row.
Tennessee beat a solid playoff team in San Francisco to help gain some momentum going into the last two games of the season. The team is on the verge of clinching a playoff spot and potentially getting Henry back for the postseason.
