4 facts you may have missed from Week 5 in the NFL
Monday October 6th, 2014

Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker questioned some of the calls made by officials late in the game after the Titans blew a 25-point first half lead against the Cleveland Browns.

The Browns won the game 29-28.

Walker, who signed as a free agent in the 2013 offseason after seven seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, doesn't think his team is getting the benefit of the doubt from the officials.

Late in the fourth quarter, Walker was ruled to have gained a first down after a six-yard gain on third down. The Browns challenged the spot, and the call was overturned.

On the next play, Titans quarterback Charlie Whitehurst tried a sneak up the middle and did not make it after it was reviewed.

"Again, that’s one of those calls that we get. I guess when you play for the Titans, you get the short end of the stick," Walker said, according to ESPN.com. " Since I’ve been here, we haven’t got calls our way...Hopefully that changes.”

Walker had four catches for 57 yards in the game. The Titans (1-4) play the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-5) on Sunday.
