Things were already heating up prior to the Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens officially taking the field for the Week 11 contest at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Titans met up at midfield on the Ravens’ logo before kickoff, which apparently irked Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, who ended up confronting Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler, leading to a shouting match between the two.
From there, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Harbaugh also got into it with Titans head coach Mike Vrabel. He says Vrabel and Harbaugh were having a “spirited chat.” We have yet to find video of that particular exchange, but we’ll certainly keep an eye out.
The Titans meeting up at the midfield logo is something this team does every week, both at home and on the road, so it isn’t clear exactly why Harbaugh was so upset.
Whatever the case may be, this situation adds even more juice to an already heated rivalry that was renewed when the Titans beat the Ravens in the playoffs last season.
