Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington went without a catch in Week 9 against the St. Louis Rams, ending a streak of 85 consecutive games with at least one grab.
Huddle Up: He had a nice matchup and put up a big, fat goose egg. Hopefully he can start another streak.

Tennessee Titans rookie WR Kendall Wright led the team with 64 receptions, and he tied Jacksonville Jaguars WR Justin Blackmon with the most catches by a rookie in the NFL this season. Wright averaged 9.8 yards per catch, and said the transition from college to the NJFL was made easier by watching WR Nate Washington. 'I just watched what Nate did and tried to do the same things,' Wright said.
Huddle Up: Wright certainly benefitted from a Titans defense that forced the offense into playing catch-up, but he's definitely a rising star and should take over the veteran Washington's role and targets going forward.
