THE NEW GUY! @blaqbadger14
— Tennessee Titans (@Titans) November 8, 2020
Not a bad first day for your new team! The Titans acquired him for a 6th round pick in the 2021 draft before last week’s trade deadline.
This was the third touchdown of his career and his first since 2018.
King is in his fourth year in the NFL. He was a 5th round pick out of Iowa back in the 2017 NFL Draft.
Coming into this game, the safety had four interceptions, two forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries in his NFL career.
The Titans took the momentum from this play and never looked back. They lead the Bears 24-10 late in the fourth quarter and will move to 6-2 on the season with a win.
