Titans should have used timeouts

By Paul Kuharsky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- For all who say Jeff Fisher is too conservative…

He let the clock run out with the Dolphins pinned at their own 2-yard line and 56 seconds in regulation instead of using three timeouts to force Miami to try to get a first down or potentially punt out of its own end zone.

Weak approach by my estimation following a touchdown and 2-point conversion by Miami tied the game the Titans once led 24-6.

And now Miami’s won the toss.

Look forward to Fisher’s defensive explanation of that one, win or lose.

He’s usually an excellent clock manager, but he failed there.
