NFL coaches don't get much gutsier than Mike Vrabel. The Tennessee Titans' first-year head coach just pulled off one of the boldest moves of the regular season so far.

The Titans rallied from a big deficit to take down the reigning Super Bowl champs, beating the Philadelphia Eagles, 26-23, in overtime.

Vrabel and the Titans had a chance to tie the game late in overtime, but opted to risk a loss and went for it on fourth down.

It worked. The Titans converted the fourth down attempt and scored the game-winning touchdown moments later. ESPN's Kirk Herbstreit, a Nashville resident, is impressed.

Here's the walkoff play:

Well done, Titans. We need more coaches like Mike Vrabel.
