2021 NFL Power Rankings: Tennessee Titans


Throughout the 2021 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Tennessee Titans rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a Week 10 roundup for the Titans in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 2

Bold second-half prediction: Kevin Byard will reach double-digit interceptions.

The Titans' defense is on fire, having recorded interceptions in each of their past six games. Byard has interceptions in each of the past two games. He is in the zone right now, as shown by how both of his most recent interceptions came through him making in-play adjustments to get to the football. Tennessee's front four is putting plenty of pressure on quarterbacks, forcing them to make bad throws that lead to interceptions. Pairing the pressures with Byard's ability to find the football along with plenty of opportunities -- especially in games against turnover-prone teams such as the Dolphins, Texans and Jaguars -- will result in a lot of interceptions. -- Turron Davenport

NFL.com -- Rank: 3

Derrick Henry might be the most talented player on the Titans, but dismissing this resilient and battle-tested team is always a mistake. Case in point: Tennessee's 28-16 dismantling of the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football. Playing against an NFC powerhouse, the Titans looked like the more prepared, better disciplined team. Tennessee's defense has been a revelation during a brilliant four-game winning streak that has included conquests over the Bills, Chiefs, Colts and Rams. The star in L.A. was Jeffery Simmons, who had three of the Titans' five sacks of Matthew Stafford. That's more sacks than any member of the franchise has recorded in a single game in 13 years.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 3

They are such a tough team. Going to Los Angeles and winning without Derrick Henry is special. They are the best team in the AFC.

USA Today -- Rank: 4

Minus RB Derrick Henry, they go into LA and KO the Rams (last week's No. 1 team in this space), solidifying themselves atop AFC standings. Oh, and any idea who owns easiest remaining schedule (.343 opponents winning percentage) in the league? You guessed it. These guys might just be OK.

The Athletic -- Rank: 2

Are they good? Even without Derrick Henry, yes, they are. The defense came up huge in a 28-16 win at the Rams, Tennessee's fifth straight victory. Adrian Peterson will improve as he shakes the rust off. The Titans won't win many games with 194 yards of offense as they did Sunday, but their current run has them as the team to beat in the AFC, and especially if they get Henry back for the playoffs. It's hard to find a better stretch than beating the Bills, Chiefs and Rams in a span of four games. But seriously, how did this team lose to the Jets?
