The Tennessee Titans strong season marched on Thursday night, as they beat the Green Bay Packers 27-17 at Lambeau Field on Thursday night to kick off Week 11. The Titans leaned on their run game, efficient passing game and strong defense to pick up the victory.

The win moves the Titans to 7-3 with a multiple-game lead in the AFC South while the Packers' loss causes them to fall to 4-7 with little hope of catching the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North.

Offensive Spotlight: In his second game back from injury, Titans QB Ryan Tannehill was back to his usual efficient self, finishing 21-of-26 for 282 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. In addition, Tannehill registered two big-time throws and accumulated an impressive 10.2 yards per attempt en route to a 75.0-plus passing grade on first review in the Titans' road victory.

Defensive Spotlight: Titans LB David Long had a busy night against the run, generating four run stops — three of which went for a loss or no gain — across 14 run-defense snaps. Most impressively, Long finished with a -0.25 average depth of tackle against the run, illuminating how much of a nuisance Long was for Green Bay's talented backfield. Long also generated a pressure.

Rookie Spotlight: Packers rookie LB Quay Walker put together a well-rounded performance in the loss, accumulating four run stops, a coverage stop and a sack en route to an 80.0-plus overall grade on first review.

Additionally, Packers rookie WR Christian Watson added two more touchdowns Thursday night to go along with the three he scored this past week against the Dallas Cowboys. Watson's first touchdown grab against Tennessee was particularly impressive, as he skied over Titans cornerback Kristian Fulton for the contested-catch score.

Even though he didn't secure a touchdown, Titans rookie receiver Treylon Burks had an impressive night in his own right, besting his career-high in receiving yards by halftime on his way to finishing with seven catches for 111 yards and three first downs en route to a 75.0-plus receiving grade.

Offensive Line Spotlight: Both offensive lines performed rarely well on Thursday night, as both units allowed sub-30% pressure rates in addition to pass-blocking efficiency rates above 80.0. Packers center Josh Myers and Titans guard Nate Davis both performed best among their respective offensive line, as neither allowed a pressure across 30-plus pass-blocking snaps on first review Thursday night.
