NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Last week against the Browns, Michael Griffin recorded one of the most productive games of his eight-year Titans career. The two-time Pro Bowl safety was credited with a sack, an interception and 15 tackles. His 15 tackles tied for his second-highest total since entering the NFL in 2007.

Griffin became the 10th player in the team's "Titans era" (1999–present) and the first since Zach Brown in the 2012 finale (Dec. 30 vs. Jacksonville) to record a sack and an interception in the same game. He is the first of the group to do so while recording double-digit tackles. The closest was Rocky Boiman, who notched eight tackles, a sack and an interception at Pittsburgh on Sept. 28, 2003.
