Pitoitua now has at least one sack in three consecutive weeks. Against the New York Jets on Sept. 29, he notched a pair of sacks, and the following week against the Kansas City Chiefs (Oct. 6), he added another one.
In the franchise’s “Titans era” (1999–present), a player has gone three or more consecutive games with at least one sack 10 times. Pitoitua is the first to accomplish the feat since Dave Ball in 2010.
With another sack this week, Pitoitua will become the team’s only player other than Jevon Kearse since the beginning of the 1999 season to notch at least one sack in four consecutive contests.
Most consecutive games with one or more sacks by a player in the “Titans era” (1999–present):
8 – Jevon Kearse (1999)
6 – Jevon Kearse (2003)
4 – Jevon Kearse (2000)
3 – Ropati Pitoitua (2013), Will Witherspoon (2010), Dave Ball (2010), Jacob Ford (2008), Dave Ball (2008), Kyle Vanden Bosch (2007), Jevon Kearse (2001)
