    Titans coach Mike Munchak says wide receiver Kendall Wright feels like no one can cover him.

    Wright made a pretty convincing statement in that regard on Sunday, as a large part of his career day came at the expense of Arizona cornerback Patrick Peterson – the fifth overall selection in the 2011 draft and a 2012 Pro Bowler.

    Overall, Wright set career highs with 12 catches and 150 yards. According to Pro Football Focus, Wright caught six of those passes – for 96 yards — while being defended by Peterson. The only time he failed to make a catch when defended by Peterson was when Wright dropped a ball.

    “He’s a competitor. Every day he competes to get better,” Munchak said. “He challenges guys like Justin (Hunter), Nate (Washington), Damian (Williams) — all that crew, every day — to be the best receiver and player. He’s contagious that way, which is why we’re so happy for his success.

    “As far as how he’s playing, he feels he can beat anybody. He thinks no one can cover him. He has a lot of confidence and you’re seeing it show up. He’s just going to continue to get better and better at what he does.”

    A few statistical nuggets regarding Wright’s numbers:

    The 12 catches against Arizona were one shy of the franchise record. That mark of 13 is held by several players, most recently Drew Bennett in 2004.

    The 150 yards were the most by a Titan in a single game since Jared Cook’s 169-yard performance against St. Louis in Dec., 2011.

    Wright’s 85 catches are the most by a Titan in a season since Derrick Mason posted 96 in 2004.

    Wright now has 1,007 receiving yards, becoming the first Titans receiver to top the 1,000-yard plateau since Washington did so in 2011.

    He's been one of the few bright spots for us this year. Anyone else still think this was a bad draft choice? DeCastro anyone?

    Six catches for 96 yards against Peterson? Not 100 yards. Doesn't count.
