Titans 16, Lions 15

Flags fly frequently

DETROIT — The Lions and Titans wear different shades of blue, but the prominent color Sunday was yellow. As in penalty flags. For three quarters the teams threatened a 65-year-old record. Detroit had 17 penalties for 138 yards, and Tennessee 12 for 83. The record is 37 penalties by Cleveland (21) and Chicago (16) on Nov. 25, 1951. "I've never seen anything like that," Lions cornerback Darius Slay said. "The refs were calling everything. Got to clean it up and do better next week."
