The wide stuff

Edmonton Sun - - SPORTS -

Wide left from 50 yards out. Wide right from 36. tipped short from 33. and wide left from 53. that’s how Cairo San­tos missed four field goals for the ten­nessee ti­tans, as the vis­it­ing buf­falo bills on Sun­day es­caped nashville with a 14-7 vic­tory and noth­ing re­motely ap­proach­ing a Mu­sic city Mir­a­cle. the game that pit­ted two strong de­fences prac­ti­cally ne­ces­si­tated the place­kick­ers be sharp. San­tos wasn’t, even though he had been un­til Sun­day, mak­ing four of five field goals. ti­tans of­fen­sive tackle Tay­lor Le­wan, how­ever, placed the blame for the loss not on San­tos — whom he hugged for en­cour­age­ment on the field at game’s end — but rather on the of­fen­sive line.

“as an of­fence, we need to get in gear,” Le­wan said. “For how­ever long I have been here, this has been the story. I think we are all over the, ‘We’re go­ing to be fine.’ We need to get in gear, we need to get go­ing.

“ev­ery­one is up­set and ev­ery­one is pissed off — (run­ning back) Derrick (Henry) is pissed off, (Qb) Mar­cus (Mar­i­ota) is pissed off, the of­fen­sive line is pissed off.

“We’ll put this on the of­fen­sive line. We have to bet­ter as an of­fen­sive line and that in­cludes my­self. We need to get bet­ter. We have to be bet­ter.”
