1/11 AFC: Tennessee Titans vs Baltimore Ravens (8:15pm)
Yes Jim Tressel won a lot of games that way. Of course that was college ball.I thought Tennessee made a mistake when they called their first timeout at 1:43 left in the half. Baltimore had it 3rd and 16 at their 9. Baltimore is too explosive and just watching the Browns game should have let Tennessee know that was a bad decision. If they would have waited and stopped Baltimore, they probably would have had the ball at the 50 with a minute left and 3 timeouts. That should have been plenty of time. Instead, Baltimore picks up the first down and drives down the field to score the FG and get within one score. Now they get the second half kickoff and can tie it up.
Sometimes it is OK to be a little conservative.
