Titans 30 Jaguars 3: ESPN Told Jack Del Rio to Take His Timeouts

This is one of the more bizarre stories I have seen in a while- Terry McCormick writes that ESPN was the reason that Jack Del Rio took those timeouts:

"Jack used his timeouts," Fisher said. "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."

That actually explains a lot because I was trying to figure out why in the world Del Rio would take his timeouts at that point after the Jaguars had run the ball 11 times on the previous drive down 20 in the 4th quarter.

So if you won your game because of Chris Johnson's late score you have ESPN to thank, and if you lost you know where to point your venom.
