Tennessee Titans Football

Seven Sacks at Jacksonville Marked 4th Highest Total in NFL in 2012

Posted by Gary Glenn on November 29, 2012 – 1:22 pm

Last week at Jacksonville, the Titans defense recorded a season-high seven sacks, matching the fourth-highest total in the NFL in 2012.

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.

Most team sacks in a road game, franchise history:

8 – Nov. 10, 1985 at Buffalo
8 – Sept. 12, 1982 at Cincinnati
8 – Oct. 17, 1976 at San Diego
7 – Nov. 25, 2012 at Jacksonville
7 – Oct. 9, 2005 at Houston
7 – Nov. 28, 1999 at Cleveland
7 – Nov. 14, 1999 at Cincinnati
7 – Sept. 23, 1979 at Cincinnati
7 – Dec. 22, 1963 at Oakland

* Brown was initially credited with two sacks in the game, and Wimbley was credited with one sack. A third-quarter sack by Brown has since been changed to a split sack between Brown and Wimbley.

Griffin’s INT, Wright’s first NFL Score Gives Titans 7-0 Lead

Posted by Gary Glenn on August 23, 2012 – 7:21 pm

It didn’t take long for the Titans to get on the scoreboard.

Following a three-and-out by Tennessee’s offense to open the game, defensive end Kamerion Wimbley darted up the middle, sacking Cardinals QB John Skelton for an 8-yard loss on Arizona’s first play. Tennessee’s defensive line brought pressure again the next play, forcing Skelton into a hurried pass that was intercepted by Michael Griffin.

Griffin’s return to Arizona’s 19-yard line put Tennessee’s offense in prime position.

Chris Johnson ripped off a 9-yard run and Jake Locker fired a 10-yard pass to rookie Kendall Wright on the next play for his first NFL touchdown and 7-0 Titans lead with 11:51 remaining in the first quarter.
