Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt had a career day against the Philadelphia Eagles—and he didn’t even begin playing until mid second quarter.
Britt caught seven receptions for 225 yards and three touchdowns to help the Titans remain at the top of the AFC South after their 37-19 win over the Eagles on Sunday. The former Rutgers standout caught touchdown passes from 26, 80, and 16 yards to improve his streak of finding the end zone to five-straight games.
Titans head coach Jeff Fisher decided to sit Britt for the first quarter and a half for his involvement in a bar incident early Friday morning. Police reports indicated how Britt repeatedly punched 26-year old Harold Pointer—who is expected to press charges—during a bar allocation. Since the incident is still under investigation, Fisher thought the best decision would be to just sit Britt instead of having him miss an entire game.
Considering how the game turned out, Fisher and the Titans are glad Britt ended up playing—especially since Vince Young was sidelined to rest his knee injury. Britt became the first Tennessee player to go over 200 receiving yards asPhiladelphia had no answers on defense to stop him.
