A weekly examination of the Titans' ESPN.com Power Ranking:
Preseason: 27 | Last Week: 22 | ESPN.com Power Ranking since 2002
An overtime loss to the Houston Texans kept the Titans in the same spot in ESPN.com’s NFL Power Rankings. They are 22nd.
They would have made a giant leap had they pulled of the upset at Reliant Stadium, but they let the Texans tie it late and win it on the first possession of overtime.
Here’s our weekly update on where they stand:
The Texans are now fourth. The Titans' next opponent, San Diego, is 16th. That feels a bit high to me, even coming off a good win in Philadelphia.
If No. 22 beats No. 16, they should, roughly, flip positions.
