Norman this season for the Redskins has three interceptions as well as three forced fumbles and 53 tackles coming into Saturday’s contest.
The Redskins had to start their third-string quarterback; Josh Johnson threw for 153 yards on 13 of 23 with one touchdown and two interceptions, both ended up being back-breakers for the Redskins.
Former Minnesota Vikings Adrian Peterson ran for 26 carries and 119 yards. Those yards allowed him to surpass 1,000 total rushing yards this season, which makes it the eighth time of his 12-year career where Peterson has run for over 1,000 yards.
The Titans held on for the victory even though they had to play two quarterbacks under center. Both Marcus Mariota and Blaine Gabbert threw for a combined 211 yards with only one total touchdown on the game. Feature back Derek Henry had a healthy 21 carries for 84 yards and one rushing touchdown.
The Redskins are now 7-8 on the season, ranking second in the NFC South. They score 18.9 points per game, which ranks 28th in the entire league. But their defense is their calling card. The Redskins only allow 22.1 points per game, ranking 13th in the entire league.
The Titans are 9-6 on the seasons and rank second in the ACF South Division. They only score 19.1 points per game, which ranks 27th among all NFL teams. Their offense may not be the best in the NFL, but their defense is for sure one of the best. They only allow 18.1 points per game, which ranks third among all NFL teams.
The Redksins will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles at home in Week 17. The Titans will play the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17 at home.
