Nashville-heavy Dodgers win World Series
Plus, the Titans trade for Desmond King and the Raptors might be calling Nashville home next season.
Welcome to the Music City Sports Report.
Congrats to the Nashville Dodgers on winning the World Series in six games over the Tampa Bay Rays.
It was a rough weekend for the Titans, as they lost their second straight game, this time in a pitiful performance to the lowly Cincinnati Bengals. Luckily, reinforcements are on the way, as they traded for former All-Pro CB Desmond King on Tuesday to shore up one of the struggling defense’s biggest weak spots (Sure would be nice to have Logan Ryan right about now). And they only gave up a sixth-round pick!
Also on the Titans front, it was a big week for Derrick Henry. He was named the AFC’s Offensive Player of the Month for October and became the new spokesperson for Old Spice with this hilarious commercial.
