Hunter grabs first TD catch in Titans win over Falcons

Posted:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP/WATE) - Former Vol Justin Hunter scored his first NFL touchdown and Jake Locker threw for 133 yards and a touchdown as the Tennessee Titans beat the Atlanta Falcons 27-16 in a preseason game Saturday night.

The Titans defense also came up big-- sacking Matt Ryan five times.

Hunter's touchdown, his only catch of the game, came on a 3-yard pass play in the 3rd quarter to help put Tennessee up 20-6.

Locker got both his first TD and the first turnover this preseason for the Titans.

The third-year quarterback also posted his best game yet as he completed 11 of 13 passes and finished with a 134.9 passer rating before leaving after a series in the third quarter.

The Tennessee defense played without four starters got to Ryan repeatedly, including three times on third downs.

Julio Jones was thrown at eight times with Roddy White resting an injured ankle, and dropped a couple while also drawing an offensive pass interference penalty.

Jeremy Shelley hit three of four field goals for Atlanta.
