NFL REWIND — It didn’t take long for the Tennessee Titans to adjust to their new head coach, going on the road to stun the New Orleans Saints in overtime, 34-28, in Mike Mularkey’s first game as interim head coach.

Tennessee overcame a 28-20 deficit in the fourth quarter to force overtime, sealing the victory on a five-yard touchdown pass from rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota to tight end Anthony Fasano with 9:50 left in the extra session.

Two former Wildcats, Avery Williamson and Wesley Woodyard, played well for the Titans’ defense. Woodyard finished with a team-high eight tackles and 1.0 sacks, with Williamson adding another seven tackles of his own.

It was the Titans’ first road win of the season and snapped a six-game losing streak that stretched back all the way to Week 2.

Tennessee fired former head coach Ken Wisenhunt earlier this week, who posted a 3-20 record in less than two seasons with the Titans.

See below how other former Wildcats performed during Week 9 of the NFL season:
