Titans running back Chris Johnson told The Tennessean that the Ravens “were trying to hurt” him during their postseason meet up in 2009. Johnson and the Titans have always been bitter towards the Ravens because they feel that Baltimore was intentionally trying to knock him out of the game.
“Yeah, they were trying to me hurt a little bit,” Johnson said. “When they were actually trying to do it, it didn’t happen. It actually happened on a fair play.” That fair play was a run in which a defender fell on his ankle and bent it the wrong way.
Johnson did admit that he doesn’t think the Ravens are a dirty team, but said that the Ravens were trying to do whatever it took to win in the playoffs. They did just that as they eliminated Tennessee 13-10.
