If you didn't already know, the Tennessee Titans offensive linemen are huge Nashville Predators fans. They were at the first game of Nashsville's 2nd Round matchup with the Winnipeg Jets, Sunday and did everything they could to help the home team in its double-OT winner. 

Their contribution was mostly getting the crowd absolutely jacked:

That's tackle Taylor Lewan hoisting a dead catfish over his head, as his teammates pour BudLight through the fish and into Lewan's mouth.

Disgusting, but impactful when you listen to the fan rection. And you may be asking, 'Why are Preds fans obsessed with catfish?' 

It's believed to have begun in Nashville inaugural season in 1998, as a response to the Red Wings fans who threw octopuses onto the ice. 

And this isn't the first time we've seen the Titans O-Line going crazy at Bridgestone Arena. Last year, the guys made a similar appearance during the Predators' playoff run: 

Also hiding in the background with the linemen was quarterback Marcus Mariota, who says he has never had a sip of alcohol in his life. Hats off to him for volunteering to babysit those animals.
