Titans Cornerback Forgets He Plays for the Titans for the Second Game in a Row

Tennessee Titans cornerback Valentino Blake should hire someone to follow him around and whisper, "Remember, T-I-T-A-N-S. Their colors are white, blue, and powder blue," in his ear.

Because it would appear the five-year veteran forgot what team he's on for the second week in a row.

In Week 10, the special-teamer confidently proclaimed to know which team came up with a fumble, though if he knew which way his team was going, he was celebrating a Green Bay Packers recovery (the Titans actually collected the ball).


On Sunday in Week 11, with his team trailing the Indianapolis Colts in an important division game, he made the extremely curious decision to risk a fumble to down a punt at the 2-yard line when that would have been the worst-case scenario had he let the ball go. In the best-case scenario, Indy wouldn't have fielded the ball cleanly and Blake's team ends up on the 20-yard line.

Backed up against their own end zone, the Titans had to punt after failing to gain a first down. They lost 24-17.

Blake took some heat for his unwise decision, and rightfully so. He responded by doubling down on the choice and making fans at home wonder if Blake—who is almost exclusively used on special teams—knows how football works.

As one might imagine, Twitter had a lot of fun with it. Though Titans fans certainly enjoyed it less.
