Tennessee was up against a daunting Indianapolis Colts team Sunday and again were faced with a double-digit deficit. But again, the Titans used a titanic-sized comeback, and game-winning 60-yard field goal to beat the Colts, 20-17.
The common tie here? The quarterbacks for both losing teams go by the name Manning. It's not like Eli (Giants) and Peyton (Colts) exactly cost their respective team the game, but both took crushing losses to a mediocre Tennessee club in back-to-back weeks.
Said Bironas about his franchise-long 60-yarder:
"I needed that wind behind me today. It was all at my back ... I let the wind take it the rest of the way. Oh, and Eli and Peyton can go suck a dick."That last part we made up, but you get the point. Two star QBs, two consecutive weeks, two gut-busting losses. Manning-haters (NFL Adam, we're looking your way), aim your "thank you's" in the direction of Mr. Bironas.
