Kevin Seifert NFL Nation 

It took a few hours, but the NFL made the obvious and correct choice this evening in allowing the Titans and Browns to participate in its "My Cause My Cleats" campaign this week. Both teams had byes in Week 13, when the program was scheduled. It has been a resounding success, and the NFL should consider it a guide in relaxing some of its most stringent and least defensible positions.
