But they didn't need it.
Instead, they made up for the failed trickey when they finally got control of the ball.
After a Packers three-and-out, a touchback, and a penalty, the Titans took over from their 25-yard line. Then DeMarco Murray took over.
The stud running back busted a 75-yard touchdown run on Tennessee's first offensive snap of the game.

The 28-year-old wasn't done humiliating the Packers defense, either. On the Titans' next possession, Murray scored again—with his arm.
After a pitch from quarterback Marcus Mariota, Murray attempted his first career pass for a 10-yard touchdown strike to Delanie Walker.

At halftime, the 4-5 Titans lead the 4-4 Packers, 35-16. Murray has 94 rushing yards on just five carries to go with a 35-yard catch and his throwing exploits. Speaking of taking care of business with one's arm, Mariota has completed 12-of-18 passes for 216 yards, three touchdowns, and zero picks at the break.
The Titans held on to win 47-25 behind 123 yards on 17 carries from Murray. They're now 5-5; the Packers are 4-5.
