Buccaneers Vs. Titans: Tennessee Takes 7-3 Lead On Reverse Kickoff Return

The Tennessee Titans took a 7-3 lead on Sunday afternoon with some special teams trickery. Tommie Campbell scored the Titans' first touchdown of the day on an 84 yard kick off return. Wide receiver Marc Mariani fielded the kick before sprinting out to about the twenty yard line. Campbell came streaking from his left to take a reverse hand off and scamper down the right sideline untouched. With the new kick off rules and proliferation of touchbacks, it's more and more difficult to be able to execute this kind of special teams trick play. It's a play that is often tried unsuccessfully but definitely caught the Bucs off guard, putting the Titans up 7-3. Video of the play below:
