Titans, Ravens get into pregame shouting match involving Mike Vrabel, John Harbaugh

Tensions were high in the Tennessee Titans-Baltimore Ravens game even before kickoff Sunday.

As the players were warming up, Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler got the festivities underway as he approached Ravens head coach John Harbaugh, and that led to Titans head coach Mike Vrabel getting involved.

It’s a little far away, but here’s video of the incident as captured from the stands:

And here was a segment from the CBS broadcast showing the other side of the incident:

It’s unclear what exactly spurred this, or if there’s history between them other than Butler’s Titans ending the Ravens’ 2019 season in the divisional round of the playoffs.

Are we putting it past Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, an Ohio State guy, taking a shot at hated Michigan (coached by John’s brother, Jim Harbaugh)?

There’s a lot on the line in this game, as both 6-3 teams are jockeying for playoff position. Entering the game, Baltimore was the seventh (and final) playoff seed in the AFC, and Tennessee was on the outside looking in at No. 9 in the conference pecking order.
