Pics of Misery: Eagles Get Titan’d

Kenny Britt came alive and ate the Eagles for three TDs in the Music City. At least the Redskins lost...?

Did someone tell Kurt Coleman and the Eagles secondary it was opposite day? Instead of touching Kenny Britt, they did the exact opposite -- and let the second-year receiver catch TD passes of 26, 80 and 16 yards while racking up seven receptions for 225 -- all career highs for a guy who sat out the entire first quarter.

Britt not only helped the Titans to a 37-19 win, but he helped himself to the best receiving game in the NFL this season. To make matters more embarrassing for Philly, the Titans were using backup QB Kerry Collins, who hadn't started a game in a year.

Eventually, Nate Allen just tried to squeeze Britt to death. It failed.

It wasn't even a great day for the Titans' ridiculous running back Chris Johnson. He had only 66 yards on 24 carries. The Eagles were up 19-10 in the fourth quarter before allowing Tennessee 27 unanswered points to finish the game. Are you fetal yet?

It started going downhill when, with six minutes left in the third quarter, Kevin Kolb missed a hand-off exchange with LeSean McCoy deep in the red zone.
Their final chance to stage a comeback over the comeback went dead when Jorrick Calvin fumbled a punt return with 3:49 left. It led to a Titans field goal.

Before it was all bad, it wasn't all bad. Juqua Parker recovered a fumble after Kerry Collins was sacked by Quintin Mikell...
...and a drive later, rookie Riley Cooper scored off a 5-yard pass from Kevin Kolb. Unfortunately, though he was able to throw for 231 yards, Kolb was intercepted twice and couldn't get anything going in the fourth.

A week after notching 159 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns, Jeremy Maclin nabbed just 42 yards on five catches. He was targeted 14 times, which tells you everything you need to know about Kolb and his tendency to underthrow.
At least Maclin looked sufficiently intimidating trying to bring down Titans safety Michael Griffin on an interception return? We're reaching.
The worst part might be losing to an owner whose hair looks like this. Gross, Bud Adams. Gross.

Andy Reid now has two weeks to decide who his QB will be when the Eagles try to right the ship against Indy.
