2. MARKUS KUHN'S FUMBLE RECOVERY TOUCHDOWN

Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was sacked by LB Devon Kennard, and the ball was recovered by DT Markus Kuhn for a touchdown.

It was the first fumble recovery scored by a Giants defensive lineman since Sept. 13, 2009, when Osi Umenyiora had a 37-yarder vs. Washington

5. JAMEEL MCCLAIN: "I'M NOT THE MIKE"

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo called out New York Giants linebacker Jameel McClain as the Mike linebacker and he responded back with a resounding no.
