Tennessee Titans broke from practice for a moment to experience the eclipse

The Tennessee Titans were sure to take advantage of the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Monday's solar eclipse.

With their Nashville training facility well within the eclipse's "path of totality," the team decided to put practice on pause for a few minutes and take in the wonders of the natural world and the celestial bodies of the universe. The team got protective glasses for all the players, coaches, and staff, and at 1:22 p.m., head coach Mike Mularkey blew the whistle to let the players know it was time to look skyward.

The team seemed to enjoy the occasion, as The MMQB shared through Instagram.

The team also go a bit festive with their celebration, playing Bruce Springsteen's "Blinded by the Light" as the eclipse passed through their view.

The Titans players seemed pretty impressed with the event.

"It feels like we're dreaming," said offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, according to The MMQB.

"That's pretty dope," added tight end Delanie Walker.

For those that got to see the eclipse in its totality, it certainly was.
