ESPN & Monday Night Football: The Titans led 23-3 with less than two minutes left last night. With the game out of reach, the Jags inexplicably began to use timeouts. Instead of taking a knee, the Titans kept running the ball … and Chris Johnson broke off a 35-yard touchdown run. Fantasy owners were probably thrilled. (Why was Johnson even in the game?) So, why’d Jack Del Rio call those timeouts? According to Titans coach Jeff Fisher, “My understanding is they needed network timeouts, and that’s why Jack used his timeouts. They came over and asked me to do it, but I said, ‘I was hoping to get a first down and kneel on it.'” Perhaps there’s a TV executive in the audience who can fill us in as to why the “network needed timeouts.” Wonder if it had to do with ensuring that ESPN beat TBS in the ratings showdown last night?
