No brawls, just different faces for Cardinals

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Arizona Cardinals coach Ken Whisenhunt and Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher may have hit on the way to eliminate brawls when opposing NFL teams practice together in the preseason.

Just play the game first, then practice -- instead of the other way around.

The teams practiced together Wednesday afternoon less than 48 hours after the Titans beat Arizona 24-10 on Monday night. Both coaches talked before practice about not expecting any fights or crushing hits.

With players on both teams practicing with some tired legs, no one went brawling.

They wrapped up after about 95 minutes with Titans and Cardinals shaking hands and going their separate ways.

Whisenhunt said they were curious what would happen and called the results good work.
