Linebacker Zach Brown and defensive end Kamerion Wimbley each had 1.5 sacks in the game*, while linebacker Akeem Ayers, safety Michael Griffin, and defensive tackles Jurrell Casey and Karl Klug each tallied a solo sack.
In franchise history, there have been only five games in which the Oilers/Titans recorded more than seven sacks and only three road games with more than seven sacks.

He totaled three receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown, recording his fifth career 100-yard game.
Late in the fourth quarter Washington somehow held onto to a long pass from Jake Locker, leaning over the body of defensive back Jacob Lacey to snare the catch. The 71-yard touchdown gave Tennessee a 34-27 lead with 3:11 remaining at LP Field.
His 71-yard TD equaled his career long set at San Diego on Oct. 31, 2010.
His first catch, a 32-yarder, extended his streak of consecutive games with at least one reception to 65, including all 51 games he has played with the Titans.
