Sunday's a big game for many reasons.
For Nate Washington, a former Tennessee Titan, this game is unique.
"It's obvious excitement, especially when you spend some time with the locker room for more than one year," Washington said. "It's obvious excitement there. Obviously, I have still been talking to a lot of those guys."
Washington played wide receiver in Nashville from 2009 to 2014, and in 2011 he cracked the 1,000 yard mark for the season, catching a career-high seven touchdowns that autumn. Six seasons as a Titan mean a lot, but Washington stressed that he's more interested in being on the winning side in Week 8.
"The more focus for me, being an older guy, is making sure that I am doing what I must do in order to give us a win, put us in a position in order to create the plays and do my assignment," Washington said.
Last Sunday in Miami, Washington finished with nine catches for 127 yards and a pair of scores. So far in 2015, he's averaging 15.3 yards per catch and has 337 receiving yards total.
