NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Titans interim coach Mike Mularkey says the NFL called how officials handled a late fourth down in Tennessee’s 24-21 loss to Oakland a “poorly officiated play.”
Mularkey says Monday officials missed both a false start and offensive pass interference in the end zone by Oakland on a pass breakup.
Instead, Titans cornerback B.W. Webb was flagged for holding on the other side of the field, and Oakland scored the winning touchdown two plays later.
The interim coach says he asked the NFL what to tell the media minutes later and was told to refer questions to the league. But the NFL declined comment to The Associated Press, saying by email the league does not comment on conversations between the officiating department and the teams.
