Logic tells me the Titans beat the Jets, but my feeling is now turning towards the Jets winning, possibly even winning BIG. Should the Jets get ahead early, they COULD pour it on. A few calls by the officials early on that favor the Jets, along with some outstanding play, and the Jets could roll (Collins COULD throw a few picks, along with some fumbles by the rookie RB, maybe Gage).
I think that, should the officials mess with a game, it would be A LOT easier for them to put the Jets on the way towards beating the Titans, than it would for them to help the Lions. With the Lions, it might take so much that people might notice the officials are trying to mess with the game, and help the Lions get on the track to beating the Titans.
I just got done watching the Vikings defeat the Packers (from 2 weeks ago), and the Packers defeating the Bears (last week). I couldn't help but notice that holding calls on the OL killed the losing team in both cases, it was critical. Sure the Packers win was lopsided over the Bears, but it might NOT have been should those holding calls not get called. At the same time, the holding calls against the Packers with Minnesota were critical in a close game.
One thing I should mention, in the Viking-Packer game, Donald Driver picked up a PI call where the defender barely touched his back, and didn't affect his movement towards the ball. Later in the game, Wade had a Packer player with his hands not only on Wade, but the hand slid up by his helmet shielding his eyes and there was no flag.
Also, there was a holding call on Driver where the biased announcer didn't think
holding should have been called on that play, and that holding could get called on every play. But you can see on the replay that Driver had a VERY good hold, and actually pulled the defender away when he grabbed on, it was BETTER than just a hold.
Watching the play where Jared Allen was flagged for a late hit, I do NOT think there should have been a flag, and I do NOT think he was leading with his helmet. Allen is tall and does NOT run with his head way back, his head is foward when he is rushing. He gets up to speed VERY fast and it is hard for him to come to a dead stop really fast. Actually, on the play, he came to a dead stop about as fast as you could. There should NOT have been a flag, and the TV announcers were clearly biased towards GB.
Conincidentally, late in the Packer/Bear game, there is a blitzing Packer LBer that if you played it side by side with the Allen hit, you would see that the Packer hit Orton later after the release than did Allen on Rogers. The Packer LBer was NOT flagged for a late hit, and the announcers made NO mention of this fact, even on the replay where you see it was clearly quite late. They just said, "the Packers are really playing a complete game today ....", NO mention on how late the hit was.
