The Titans Live-Tweeted the Music City Miracle on the 15th Anniversary of the Famous Game-Winning Touchdown

On January 8, 2000, the Tennessee Titans beat the Buffalo Bills in their AFC Wild Card playoff game with an insane touchdown that became known, almost immediately, as the Music City Miracle.

Yesterday, to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Music City Miracle, the Tennessee Titans live-tweeted the entire game.

Now, for you kids out there who are bad at both history and math, Twitter did not exist 15 years ago. It was invented six years after Lorenzo Neal handed the ball off to Frank Wycheck, who lateralled the ball to Kevin Dyson. So the Titans social media people couldn’t go back and dig up old tweets. They had to “live”-tweeted something that already happened. Which was weird, but also pretty awesome.

Take a look:

See? That was pretty great.

Of course, the St. Louis Rams simply could not resist chiming in and raining on the Titans’ parade by reminding the Titans what that big win over Buffalo eventually got them…

The irony? Jeff Fisher, who was the Titans’ coach for the Music City Miracle, is now the coach of the Rams. So that’s awkward.
