Just when you think you've gotten the NFL all figured out, something like this happens:

Titans 26, Ravens 13.

Really, now, who saw this coming? A week earlier, the Titans staggered through the first 3½ quarters and were fortunate to still be around at the end of a 16-14 loss at Jacksonville.

As for Baltimore, the Ravens were fresh from a 35-7 assault of Pittsburgh that had analysts -- professional and otherwise -- all atwitter on Twitter and virtually every other medium.

In short, the Ravens were the toast of the NFL, and the Titans were, well, toast.

"ESPN was kind of saying that those guys were Super Bowl champs this year, predicting them to win it all," Titans tight end Jared Cook said. "It's good to come out and have a game like this. Now we've got to keep it rolling."
