The Los Angeles Chargers came into today's game against the Tennessee Titans as huge favourites to pick up the win.

They came into the game off the back of a resounding 38-14 win against Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns, while the Titans found themselves in something of a slump after getting humiliated by the Baltimore Ravens last week in a performance that saw Marcus Mariota get sacked 11 times. 

We expected the Chargers to come out strong on offense, but no one was really prepared for what was to come on their first play of the game. 

After the Titans went 3-0 up on a Ryan Succop field goal, the Chargers took a touchback on the kickoff and Philip Rivers and co. came out onto the field with the swagger of a side looking to do damage. 

And on their own 25-yard line, Ken Whisenhunt drew up a beauty of a play-call to catch the Titans defense off-guard. 

One first-and-10, Tyrell Williams went deep and the Titans seemingly forgot to keep tracking the second-year receiver.

The former Western Oregon University star blazed by both the cornerback and the safety, with Philip Rivers unleashing his arm to find the speedy wideout who took the top off the defense. 

The result. A 75-yard touchdown and an indication that this could be another very long day for the Titans defense.

The touchdown grab was Wiliams' third in his last two games. Against the Browns last week he caught TD passes of 45 and 29 yards.

This was the Chargers first touchdown on their first offensive play of the game since 2001, where Curtis Conway went for 72-yards on an end-around play against the Oakland Raiders.
