ESPN tells Jack Del Rio to take timeouts to extend the game.

""Jack used his timeouts," Fisher said after the game via Terry McCormick of Titans Insider. "My understanding is they needed network timeouts, and that's why Jack used his timeouts. They came over and asked me to do it, but I said, 'I was hoping to get a first down and kneel on it.'"

Of course, you can also thank Del Rio for actually listening.  Fisher was happy to end the game at 23-3, but Del Rio didn't let him. 

"It's the first time I've heard of it," Fisher said about a network request for timeouts. "I just said I would have a hard time using them, because I'm ahead. Honestly, I have no issues with Jack or how he managed the end of that game. It's just what it was, and I don't think he would have an issue with me handing the ball off."

I think we would be hearing more of this if that Chris Johnson touchdown costs someone money. Just seems odd that ESPN tells a NFL team to extend the game for their commercial breaks and even more odd that the coach listens.
