CB Richard Sherman disagreed with the pass-interference and unnecessary roughness penalties that were called against him. The latter came on what officials deemed to be a late hit out of bounds on Titans QB Marcus Mariota. Sherman: "No, he was still in bounds, so I play until the blow of the whistle. If the quarterback slides, or kind of gives himself up or does something like that, then you stop. But, if there's still yards that he's gaining, you're taught to play to the whistle. It's so crazy the way the game is nowadays. (Mariota) came up to me and said 'good hit' because he understood that I'm playing till the blow of the whistle. I'm not waiting until you took two steps out of bounds. It's a game of inches and you can't give up anything, and it's just one of those plays. It's football. It seems like the world is getting a lot softer in terms of the way it's officiated and the way it's seen, but it's football at the end of the day."
