PHOTO: Titans feel it's appropriate to play with 14 men on defense

As you can see in the above photo, the Titans had 14 men on the field when Colts quarterback Andrew Luck snapped the ball on the final play of the first quarter Thursday.

Problem was that the officials didn't call a penalty on Tennessee even though there were 14 FREAKIN' MEN on the field.

Indianapolis, though, challenged the non-ruling, and after an interminably long delay (the review took about four times as long as an obvious overturning should have), the officials called the correct penalty on Tennessee. As such, the Colts luxuriated in those extra sweet five yards.

Good thing, because I was beginning to think that if a team had 14 men on the field, the officials would applaud its initiative and creativity and forget about throwing their yellow flags.
