    <br /> Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky <p>NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Chris Hope is heading to the Pro Bowl and has had a strong year, but many thought it was Michael Griffin who deserved to go to Hawaii out of the Titans safeties.</p> <p>Nick Harper just let Derrick Mason by him, clearly expecting a safety over top to take the deep right side of the field.</p> <p>Hope was way late, and Joe Flacco stepped up on a third-and-13, throwing a strike up the sideline. Mason turned it onto a 48 yard TD that tied the game at 7-7.</p> <p>The Ravens didn't call passes on the first two third-and longs of the game, calling runs up the middle. But they showed confidence in Flacco there and he made a play.</p> <p>Tennessee's response is good so far, with Chris Johnson's 32-yard run getting the Titans to the Baltimore 32 as we head into the second quarter.</p>
