Titans-Seahawks Game Notes


FIVE FUMBLES FORCED: The Titans forced five fumbles against the Seahawks and recovered two of them.  The five fumbles were the most caused by the Titans since forcing five against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Nov. 27, 2011.

WASHINGTON EXTENDS STREAK: With a 15-yard reception in the second half, Nate Washington extended his streak of consecutive games with at least one reception to 84, including all 70 games he has played with the Titans.

PITOITUA RECORDS SACK, LEADS TEAM: In the fourth quarter, defensive end Ropati Pitoitua took down Russell Wilson for a four-yard loss.  He was credited with his team-high fourth sack of the season and the seventh sack of his career.

FOKOU FORCES FUMBLE, RECOVERED BY GRIFFIN: In the third quarter, linebacker Moise Fokou was credited with his first forced fumble of the season, knocking the ball away from wide receiver Sidney Rice.  It was recovered by Michael Griffin (first fumble recovery of the season, fifth of career) for the team's second takeaway of the game. In the fourth quarter, Fokou added to his forced-fumble total by notching another one against Marshawn Lynch, but it was recovered by the Seahawks. Fokou now has five career forced fumbles.


McCOURTY SCORES SECOND CAREER TOUCHDOWN:**Jason McCourty gave the Titans the lead on the final play of the second quarter with his second career touchdown.  On an aborted field goal try by the Seahawks, Michael Griffin knocked the ball out of the hands of holder Chris Maragos, recording his second forced fumble of the season (11th career).  McCourty then scooped up the ball and raced 77 yards for the score with no time on the clock.  McCourty previously scored on a blocked punt recovery against the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 30, 2011.  His score against the Seahawks was the team's third defensive touchdown of 2013.

POLLARD NOTCHES SACK: In the second quarter, safety Bernard Pollard was credited with his first sack of the season (10th career) when he stopped Russell Wilson for no gain. 

WILLIAMS REACHES 100: With a five-yard catch in the second quarter, wide receiver Damian Williams reached the 100th reception of his four-year career.  He totaled two receptions for 22 yards in the game.

BIG PLAY BY WRIGHT: On the Titans' second drive, Kendall Wright caught passes from Ryan Fitzpatrick on three consecutive plays (48 total yards), including a 32-yarder.  It was the fourth-longest reception of Wright's two-year career. Wright led the team on the day with five receptions for 69 yards.

BIRONAS TIES BINGHAM: Kicker Rob Bironas appeared in his 134th consecutive game for the Titans.  He is now tied with former Oilers linebacker Gregg Bingham for sixth place on the franchise's all-time consecutive games list.  He contributed a pair of field goals against the Seahawks in two attempts, connecting from 38 and 25 yards.

TITANS CONTINUE TO BATTLE TOP 10 DEFENSES: Against the Seahawks, the Titans played their fifth opponent in six games against a team with a top 10 defense entering the weekend.  They played the Pittsburgh Steelers (10th), Houston Texans (first), San Diego Chargers (27th), New York Jets (second), Kansas City Chiefs (seventh) and Seahawks (sixth) in the first six weeks of the season.

STARTS FOR MIKE MARTIN AND KAMERION WIMBLEY: Second-year defensive tackle Mike Martin recorded his first start of 2013 and his second career start.   Defensive end Kamerion Wimbley made his first start of the season and the 111th of his career.

INACTIVES: Titans starting quarterback Jake Locker was inactive against the Seahawks due to the sprained hip and knee he suffered on Sept. 29 against the New York Jets.  The Titans' six other inactive players were running back Shonn Greene, cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson, linebacker Zaviar Gooden, linebacker Patrick Bailey, center Brian Schwenke and tackle Byron Stingily.
