Schommer's film study pays off

SAN DIEGO _ Backup safety Nick Schommer saw something on the film that he thought he would try and take advantage of on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers special teams.

It didn't take the 2009 seventh-round pick to find out that his hunch was right, as he blocked a Mike Scifres punt out of the end zone for a safety and a quick 2-0 Titans lead.

Schommer got so much of the punt that the ball actually went airborne backwards and nearly went through the uprights.

โ€œI had seen something on the film that I thought I could expose them with. I tried it and I came free and I got the punt blocked,โ€ Schommer said.

That was the fourth punt that Scifres has had blocked this season.
