The Tennessee Titans got the short end of a questionable call in the second quarter against the New England Patriots Saturday night.
After the Titans appeared to have forced the Patriots to a three-and-out, both teams lined up for a punt. After it initially appeared the Patriots would be called for a false start, the Titans were called for a neutral zone infraction, giving the Patriots an automatic first down on what was a fourth-and-10:
If we can practice outside, we practice outside as a team, whether we’re playing a dome game or not, he said. You’re at Mother Nature’s mercy as far as replicating conditions.
As far as the winds go, you know you can’t really simulate that. The best thing is really the pregame your kicks before the game and seeing what the wind’s doing to the ball.
Bryant is the oldest player remaining in the NFL postseason, followed by 40-year-old Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Asked to explain his longevity, Bryant clearly won’t be launching an MB3 workout program like Brady has with his TB12 brand.
Brooooo I kno it feels good to tell these ppl off , trust me I would love nothin more than to do the same. But don’t waste ur time on these ppl, half the ppl don’t even have real accounts. Stop bro, ur better than that. U weren’t… and I wasn’t… good enough this year.
The plan for now is for the team to participate in outreach efforts Thursday night—the players are likely to visit children in an area shelter—in place of the game that they were slated to play against the Cowboys. More of that sort of thing is in the works for Saturday, as well. And on Sunday, the whole organization has been invited to volunteer with Watt and help unload trucks packed with supplies that will be arriving from the three-time defensive player of the year’s native Wisconsin.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of guys who will be taking care of their own situations. Scores of players, coaches and staff have had their families evacuated from their homes, and are experiencing the bad fortune that a lot of us are only seeing on TV. Linebacker Brian Peters had two feet of water in his house. Head trainer Geoff Kaplan’s family had to be rescued by boat, with alligators—yes, alligators—confirmed to be lurking in the waters around the house. And defensive coordinator Mike Vrabel’s wife, Jen, opened the family’s home to about 15 of their storm-affected sons’ friends.
