Where they stand in key categories

By Paul Kuharsky

Two games isn’t a huge sampling. But we’ve seen one-eighth of the season, so we can’t dismiss things as a tiny sample size anymore.

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.

We will include last year’s final rankings, at least for now.


Defense dropped 10 slots and rush defense dropped 18 spots after the big opening-day win in Pittsburgh. The Titans have now faced one bad offense (Pittsburgh) and one good offense (Houston).
