Jones Has Career Day Against Steelers
Former D1 combine athlete and Tennesse Titans defensive tackle, Jason Jones, had the best game of his rookie season on Sunday as the Titans locked up the top seed in the AFC. Jones came in for veteran Albert Haynesworth who sprained his MCL last week. Jones did not disappoint as he had the franchise's second-best sack outing since 1982 when the NFL made sacks an official statistic. Jones recorded four tackles, three and a half sacks, and forced two fumbles which resulted in two turnovers by the Steelers. "I knew I could help out, but I didn't think it would come like this," Jones said. "Everything just happened so fast out there and it opened up. I am just blessed." Congratulations on the game, Jason! All of us at D1 are eagerly awaiting the match up next week between the Titans and D1 co-owner Peyton Manning and his Colts.
