Titans Start Game With Failed Onside Kick

The Green Bay Packers had the first offensive possession against the Tennessee Titans today, so instead of a kickoff punt, the Titans tried an onside kick instead. The Packers recovered it anyway, and began their first drive just inside the Titans territory. The onside kick could have come back to haunt the Titans, but the Packers went three and out, and punted it into the endzone. On their first offensive possession, the Titans gave the ball to DeMarco Murray, who had a 75-yard run into the endzone to get Tennessee on the board first.
