Tensions were high prior to the Ravens-Titans game on Sunday, and appeared to carry over into the postgame handshakes.
Baltimore coach John Harbaugh seemingly waved off Titans coach Mike Vrabel after Sunday’s 30-24 overtime win by Tennessee. Vrabel declined to make an issue of it after the game, however, saying “absolutely not” when asked by a reporter if Harbaugh refused to shake his hand
Vrabel said he has a “lot of respect for John” and that Harbaugh told him there was no issue left over from the pregame. Harbaugh took issue when Titans players invaded the crest at midfield in Baltimore, leading to a tense exchange with Vrabel.
The incident culminated in Harbaugh and Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler shouting at each other. Harbaugh told reporters following the game that the pregame activities were “irrelevant” and said there was no issue after the game.
Baltimore led 14-10 at halftime before taking a 24-21 lead with just over two minutes left in regulation. A 29-yard field goal from Ravens kicker Justin Tucker forced overtime, where a 29-yard touchdown run by Derrick Henry secured the win for the Titans. The loss dropped the Ravens to 6-4, while the Titans improved to 7-3.
