Elias Sports Bureau came through with this nugget after the Titans improved to 7-0 without a single 200-yard passing game this season:

"The last NFL team to win its first seven games of a season without throwing for 200 yards in any of the seven games was John Robinson's 1985 Rams, with Dieter Brock at quarterback (and Eric Dickerson in the backfield)."

Those Rams topped 300 yards passing in their eighth game, only to lose, 28-14, to the 49ers. The Rams' season ended in the NFC title game when Mike Singletary's Chicago Bears shut them out, 24-0, at Soldier Field.

Singletary wasn't nearly as entertaining during postgame interviews back then, but if you gave him a chance, he would rock you good. Nobody was messin' in his neighborhood.
