Titans, Eagles lead NFL with most lowering-head penalties

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) The NFL tapped Titans coach Mike Vrabel to narrate a video detailing the new rule on lowering the head to initiate contact, hoping the man who played 14 years as a linebacker in the league could more easily explain how players should adapt.

Now Vrabel's own Titans (0-2) find themselves tied with defending champion Philadelphia for the most lowering-the-head penalties through two preseason games with five apiece. Tennessee was flagged three times for the new rule in an opening loss in Green Bay , and the Titans added two more in Saturday night's 30-14 loss to Tampa Bay .

Getting it right matters because any player initiating contact with his helmet could be ejected after an in-game video review decided in New York.
