=== Titans' Griffin suspended for one game ===
 
 New  York, NY  (SportsNetwork.com) - The NFL suspended Tennessee Titans safety
 Michael  Griffin  one game  without pay  for a repeat  violation of NFL safety
 rules prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players.
 
 Griffin  was penalized  for unnecessary  roughness  in the  second quarter  of
 Sunday's  game  against  Oakland for  delivering  a  blow  to  the head  of  a
 defenseless receiver, Raiders tight end Mychal Rivera.
 
 The violation was Griffin's second this season and fourth since 2011. All four
 violations were for striking defenseless players in the head and neck area.
 
 Under  the  Collective  Bargaining  Agreement,  Griffin's  suspension  may  be
 appealed  within three business days and an expedited hearing and decision can
 be requested in advance of Sunday's game.
 
 The  5-6 Titans are  one of six teams tied for the final Wild Card spot in the
 AFC.  Tennessee heads  to Indianapolis Sunday to take on the AFC South-leading
 Colts.
