NFL REWIND — Two former Kentucky Wildcats teamed up for 14 tackles and an interception, but it wasn’t enough to get the Tennessee Titans past Atlanta, losing 10-7 at home on Sunday afternoon.
Wesley Woodyard posted a game-high nine tackles, and Avery Williamson added another six tackles and his first career interception on a tipped pass defending fellow former Wildcat Jacob Tamme in the endzone, but the Titans’ offense could not capitalize, managing just 256 from scrimmage behind second-year quarterback Zach Mettenberger, who made his first start of the season for an injured Marcus Mariota (knee sprain).
Tamme (TE) caught three passes for 36 yards in a winning effort for the Falcons.
With the loss, Tennessee falls to 1-5 on the season and remains in last place in the AFC South Division. Atlanta improves to 6-1 and first place in the the NFC South.
