Let’s run through where the Titans stand in key categories through nine games and 10 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.
The final rankings from 2012 are included for comparison:
The rushing offense got better off a poor effort, meaning other teams didn’t fare well either. Third-down efficiency on offense is impressive. The Titans were 10 for 18 against the Jaguars in the bad loss, which got them to 42.1 percent on the season, a pretty good number. Third down defense allowed the Jaguars three conversions in 12 attempts, dropping the conversion rate against Tennessee to 33.1 percent.
