The Titans were awarded a 33-yard penalty in overtime when an official errantly marked off a penalty from the Lions' 44 instead of the Titans 44. The mistake put them in field goal range. They went on to kick it and won the game.

Oops. That should be a 27-yard penalty. 6 + 6 + 15.

Revis Island will be uninhabited for the rest of the season as he tore his ACL. Perhaps Tebow can line up as a nickel back from here on out; judging by yesterday's performance, he's good at deflecting passes.

All the latest on the Cowboys ... or maybe not.

And still the league doesn't care. Keep spending that hard-earned money on their game, fans. That's all that matters, and when everyone figures this fact out they won't keep scratching their heads over the many, many botched calls.

In Pats/Ravens there were 11 first downs via penalty. What a farce.

The Pats / Ravens game was more like a bad B movie than it was a sporting contest. And it wasn't the quality of the play or players.

At around 3 minutes to go it appeared the Ravens were done, having been screwed by questionable (ok, simply wrong) calls at critical moments. Then they win on a field goal (or not) after the officials delayed call ... post deer in the headlights confusion on the play and the game in it's entirety.

Left me with the same "what the hell was that?" feeling as said B movie.
