A pair of former Wildcats had big days for the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. Avery Williamson had nine total tackles, including a sack, while Wesley Woodyard had three tackles, including a sack of his own, as the Titans held off the Cleveland Browns 28-26.

Former Wildcat standout Randall Cobb made the most of his appearance on Sunday night football. Cobb caught seven passes for 53 yards and his first touchdown of the season. But the Packers lost to the Dallas Cowboys 30-16 at Lambeau Field.

Corey Peters had a season-high three tackles, including a tackle for a loss, as his Arizona Cardinals thumped the New York Jets 28-3 on Monday Night Football.

Josh Forrest, linebacker for the Los Angeles Rams and former Wildcat, clocked time for the second week in-a-row Sunday against the Detroit Lions. Forrest had three combined tackles in a 31-28 loss.

Another former Wildcat standout, Jacob Tamme, had a pair of receptions for 16 yards as his Atlanta Falcons fell to the Seattle Seahawks 26-24.

Blanton, Dodgers Still Alive in MLB Playoffs


Joe Blanton continues to serve in a relief role for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are just three wins away from the World Series. The former Wildcat right-hander played a key role in the Dodgers Division Series win over the Washington Nationals, and he and his team are hoping to get past the heavily-favored Chicago Cubs in the National League Championship Series.
