Where Titans stand in key categories
By Paul Kuharsky
Let's run through where the Titans stand in key categories through 10 games and 11 weeks.
Overall offensive and defensive rankings and rushing and passing rankings are based on yardage, and yardage isn't the most important thing. Points are the most important thing, and third down is quite important, too.
Third downs remain a strength on both sides of the ball. The Colts converted 46 percent against the Titans, but Tennessee still ranks fifth. In the context of the league, the Titans remain excellent. They lost two spots in rushing offense after a 122-yard effort. The 30 points allowed to the Colts took them out of the top 10 in scoring defense.
