Seocn dyear linebacker recorded 16 tackles last week to lead the team.

Avery Williamson has quite the game against the Carolina Panthers last week. If he can produce a similar effort against Jacksonville it could help the Titans get another win.

Last week against the Carolina Panthers, Tennessee Titans inside linebacker Avery Williamson was credited with 16 tackles, as determined by the defensive coaching staff’s film review*. He had nine solo stops and seven assists.

Williamson, a fifth-round pick in 2014, set a career high with his performance against the Panthers, topping his previous high of 12 stops in a game (twice, last vs. Indianapolis on Sept. 27, 2015).

In the “Titans era” (since 1999), Williamson is only the ninth player to record 16 tackles in a game, and he is the first to accomplish the feat since Michael Griffin had 18 total stops at San Diego on Sept. 16, 2012
