The Tennessee Titans won a big game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, and that was enough to push the Titans back into the top-ten.
The Tennessee Titans had a successful bounce-back game on Sunday against a team that’s considered to be a Super Bowl contender. The Titans defeated the Baltimore Ravens 30-24 in overtime, and it proves that the Titans own the Ravens, and the Titans still have the juice to be great.
Whether they can continue what they did on Sunday long term is another question. That’s not guaranteed, but it does look like the Titans still have what it takes to beat great teams.
We will have to see what happens, but for now, USA Today’s Nate Davis has placed the Titans back in the top-ten of his power rankings. The Titans snuck into the top-ten at No. 8 in the new rankings.
"8. Titans: “RB Derrick Henry is on pace to be the first player since Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson in 2007 to win consecutive rushing titles. King Henry is also on track for 1,726 yards on the ground, which would beat his personal best by nearly 200 yards.”"
The Titans surpassed the Buffalo Bills (No. 9) and Seattle Seahawks (No. 10). If the Titans can beat the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday, then they could jump up two more spots this time next week. Directly ahead of the Titans are the Green Bay Packers (No. 7) and Colts (No. 6). Unsurprisingly, the Pittsburgh Steelers hold down the top spot as they remain undefeated.
This Sunday will be the third-straight week where the Titans are playing in a big game, and the second time in three weeks, they will face the Colts. Both teams come into the game 7-3, with the Colts holding the tiebreaker with its win over the Titans two weeks ago.
If the Titans can win, and win convincingly, then we could see this part of the season as a turning point for the Titans, and it would also propel the Titans into first in the AFC South at 8-3. It also means we’re two wins away from the Titans winning more than nine games in a season since 2008 when they went 13-3.
