Titans Looking to Earn Playoff Home Games


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The Tennessee Titans are proud of their amazing road run to the franchise’s first AFC championship game in 17 years, especially after their 2-4 start to the season. But winning three straight road games before losing in Kansas City has driven home the importance of trying to host a playoff game for the first time since 2008 for Tennessee. Coach Mike Vrabel says the Titans have to get to the point where they host those games. The Titans go into the offseason with 18 pending free agents led by quarterback Ryan Tannehill and NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
