Titans OT Taylor Lewan has struggled with penalties so far this year. Lewan has nine penalties in six games in 2019 following his four-game suspension to start the season, including three in Sunday’s upset win against the Chiefs.
“Before we even start this whole thing, my penalties are a f–king problem,” Lewan said via ESPN’s Turron Davenport. “I am 100 percent an issue with that. It is not intentional. I do not mean to do it. My intentions are good. I am just trying to finish. And it is killing the team. . . . I am completely screwing the team with the amount of penalties I have had these last — what — six games. . . . It’s horrible. I cannot get penalties. I am sorry. There is no need to ask me about it because I know I am an absolute liability when it comes to penalties.”
