Titans claim uncalled hold worth 2 points



Week 1: Titans at Steelers

The Tenneseean is reporting Titans coach Jeff Fisher will send a tape to the league office alleging  an uncalled holding penalty on the Steelers that would have resulted in a safety. Titans defensive end Javon Kearse was grabbed by Steelers lineman Willie Colon in the end zone during a second-quarter play.

“Sometimes those things are missed and I was surprised that that one was missed,” Fisher said. “But those types of things in games like these can have an impact on the outcome of the game.” The Titans are expected to bring the play to the NFL’s attention for its weekly review of officials.

Bill Leavy was the referee covering the play.
