Former University of Kentucky star Avery Williamson had a career-high and team-best 10 tackles, including his first quarterback sack, in the Tennessee Titans' 30-16 loss to the Houston Texans.

Eight of the rookie linebacker's tackles were solo and two were for a loss.

"I'm getting more comfortable and that's a part of it," he said. "I feel like I'm playing pretty good. We have to keep our head on straight and keep on working, and I feel like it is going to get better for me. The better I do, the more it helps the defense out."

Teammate and fellow ex-Cat Wesley Woodyard added six tackles and two of those were for a loss. And former Paducah Tilghman standout George Wilson had three tackles for the Titans.

"I like the fact that we were good at getting pressure on them early," Titans Coach Ken Whisenhunt said of his defense. "I appreciate the fight in our guys. Nobody quit, nobody gave up."
