After eleven seasons in the NFL, Wesley Woodyard isn’t slowing down.
The former Kentucky linebacker has been named AFC Defensive Player of the Week after an excellent performance against the New England Patriots. In the Titans’ 34-10 upset victory, Woodyard pressured Tom Brady 5 times, recorded 1.5 sacks and tallied 12 tackles, one for loss.
Woodyard is tied for a team-high 62 tackles this season. Even though he’s getting old, Woodyard is saving his best for last. In 2017 he had career-highs in tackles and sacks. Right now he’s on pace to surpass last season’s sack mark.
The 5-4 Titans travel to Indianapolis this Sunday for a 1:00 p.m. divisional matchup.
