It was a big win for the Titans over the Broncos, and it involved a hit that the internet is still talking about.

Late in the second quarter, Titans receiver Harry Douglas took a questionable cut block on Bronco’s defensive back Chris Harris Jr., sending him to the sideline with an injury.

But on the very next play, it was Broncos’ Aqib Talib and Douglas sparring on the sideline. The fight ensued, and both sides let their feelings be known after the game.

Douglas says it was a legal block, Talib called it a dirty hit, and head coach Mike Mularkey is backing his player. The coach was adamant the hit was legal and he doesn’t think it was excessive.
