Delanie Walker broke all the Patriots’ tackles on his way to a 57-yard TD

The Titans are losing to the Patriots and may be on the road to the first overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, but Delanie Walker is at least making things a little bit fun for Tennessee fans on Sunday.

With 7:04 remaining in the fourth quarter, backup quarterback Zach Mettenberger -- in for an injured Marcus Mariota -- hit his tight end over the short middle for what looked to be a modest gain. That's when Walker did this.

After a truck-stick on defensive back Patrick Chung, Walker avoided Darius Fleming, raced up the sideline and beat Logan Ryan before fending off rookie Jordan Richards with a stiff arm on his way to pay dirt.

The play brought the Titans back to within 11 points and further demonstrated just how underrated Walker, who came into the game as the NFL's leader in receptions at the tight end position, is for the Tennessee offense. His two catches Sunday have both gone for touchdowns.
