GIF: Tennessee Titans open season with safety on kickoff return

tennessee season opening safety

Sunday served as the opening weekend for just about every team in the NFL. On a day like today, hope is supposed to spring eternal – everyone still has a chance at going undefeated.

Well, we don’t mean to hate, but Tennessee sort of shot those hopes down pretty early on. Darius Reynaud hauled in the opening kickoff from Pittsburgh, then took a step back and into the end zone. He then did the unthinkable and kneeled down.

He thought he was going for a touchback, but because he had started out of the endzone, it was actually a two-point safety. Ouch and a half.
