With 225 receiving yards and three touchdowns in the Titans’ win over Philadelphia on Sunday, Kenny Britt became the third wideout to hit those numbers since 2000.

The list of three is all AFC South: Britt, Drew Bennett against Kansas City in 2004 and Jimmy Smith in 2000 at Baltimore.

Britt also set himself apart in Oilers/Titans franchise annals with his seventh touchdown in his first seven games. Only Ernest Givens in 1992 matched that, in a season when Haywood Jeffires had six in his first seven games.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Britt’s 32.1-yard average against the Eagles was the highest average by a player with at least seven receptions in one game in 23 years.

Anthony Allen of the Redskins gained 255 yards on seven catches on the first weekend of play with replacement players during the players’ strike of 1987 -- good for 36.4 yards per catch.
