EAST RUTHERFORD http://www.thetitanslockerroom.com/authentic-rashaan-evans-jersey , N.J. (AP) — Titans are hoping to get to the playoffs riding the tandem of Derrick and the Defense.It had been a perfect formula the last couple of weeks, and on a rainy Sunday it led to a third straight win and the Titans’ first shutout in 18 years.Bruising halfback Derrick Henry had his second straight big game with a career-high 33 carries for 170 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Tennessee (8-6) kept its late-season playoff push alive and ended the New York Giants‘ postseason hopes with a 17-0 victory.“We’re happy with whatever works and helps us win games,” Henry said of the new dynamic duo. “If that’s it, then we’ll keep on doing it. Whatever gives us the best opportunity to win games, I think we’re going to stick with that. Hat’s off to the defense, pitching a shutout.”The shutout was the Titans’ first since a 31-0 win over the Cowboys on Christmas Day in 2000. Over the last two games, the defense has allowed nine points.Henry, who scored on two 1-yards runs, has been ever better. He had a franchise-record 238 yards and four touchdowns in a win over Jacksonville on Dec. 6, and his 408 yards over the last two games is the best in the Titans’ era. Earl Campbell ran for more when the team was the Houston Oilers.“I think he’s just finding seams and when it comes down to it, there’s only one ball,” said quarterback Marcus Mariota , who was 12 of 20 for 88 yards. “We just have to find a way to get it to everybody. Derrick had the opportunity in the past couple of weeks to have more carries, and I think he’s done a great job with it.”The Titans’ defense limited Saquon Barkley to 31 yards on 14 carries and added three sacks, a third-quarter interception by Kevin Byard that stopped a New York drive inside the red zone with the score 7-0, and a forced fumble that set up Henry’s second TD.It was the first time New York was blanked since Arizona posted a 23-0 win last Dec. 24.Eli Manning finished 21 of 44 for 229 yards as New York lost for only the second time in six games since the bye week.“It wasn’t the type of game that we wanted to play today; we didn’t do enough in all phases to get the job done,” Giants defensive captain Alex Ogletree said. “When you don’t do that, those are the results you get. I thought we played hard, but we didn’t make enough plays.”The Titans’ offense did, rushing 42 times for 216 yards.After Ryan Succop missed a 48-yard field goal on the opening series Womens Bruce Matthews Jersey , the Titans got the ball back and went 75 yards in 15 plays with Henry powering in from 1 yard. He seemingly had scored two plays earlier, but a video review determined he was just short.Linebacker Kamalei Correa forced a Manning fumble in the third quarter that Jurrell Casey recovered at the 14. New York seemed to have the Titans stopped at its 3 on third down, but a facemask penalty on a sack of Mariota gave them first-and-goal.Succop added a 22-yard field goal in the fourth quarter.The Giants have now missed the playoffs two straight year and have made it once since the 2012 season (2016).“It hurts. Obviously you want to make the playoffs,” Manning said. “We didn’t play well enough early in the year to put ourselves in a good position. I knew we still had a chance if we won out, but we didn’t play well enough today to do that.”ODD PENALTYThe Titans were hit with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for taking two consecutive delay-of-game penalties in row on afourth-and-6 at the Giants 35 late in the first half. The Giants declined the first one and Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel had his team do it again. He seemed surprised by the second call.INJURIESTitans S Kenny Vaccaro left in the first half with a concussion. LB Sharif Finch left in the second half with a shoulder injury.Giants C Spencer Pulley left in the second half with a calf injury, along with special teams Antonio Hamilton, who had a quadriceps injury. Star WR Odell Beckham Jr., missed his second straight game with a quad problem.UP NEXTTitans: host Washington on Saturday in finishing with two games at home.Giants: at Indianapolis on Sunday in the final road game of the regular season.Where were you when the Music City Miracle happened? This week’s theme on the SB Nation NFL blogs is “where were you when...” The obvious choice for the this site is where were you when the Music City Miracle happened? I have told my story a bunch of times, but some people might not have heard it before, so here it goes again.I was a senior in high school in January of 2000. The Friday night before the game I was at a high school basketball game and my parents left the house for a little bit to take my sister somewhere after going to the grocery store. When they came back home, they realized someone had broken into our house. They didn’t end up getting much from the break in, other than a case of Moutain Dew my mom had just bought for me, but they really trashed the place. They dumped out every draw in the entire house. There was crap everywhere. We cleaned up some that night, but left most of it to be done on Saturday.Saturday morning I had a church league basketball game. I had a terrible game, so I was pretty ticked off after that and the events of the night before. The Titans’ game was starting as I got in the car, so I listened to Mike Keith on the way home before sitting down in the den at my parents’ house to watch the rest of the game with my dad.The game takes me from ticked off to just plain ol’ depressed. If you were watching the game, you know what I am talking about. Steve Christie kicks a 41-yard field goal with 16 seconds left in the game to give the Bills a 16-15 lead. The season is over. I am looking around the room realizing that after all of this I have to spend the rest of the day cleaning up the house.Then....I still get goosebumbs and tears in my eyes watching that to this day. The next 10 minutes are so are a blur between the jumping around the living room, high-fiving my dad, and running up to the TV while they are showing the replay to prove that it was a lateral.If you watch the TV broadcast:It takes just under 4 minutes from when Kevin Dyson crosses the goal line for Phil Luckett to announce the play stands. It felt like a million years and 4 seconds all at the same time.Where were you when the Music City Miracle happened?
