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 15 roundup for the Titans in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 7

The FPI ratings on offense and defense are a result of significant players missing time due to injury. After losing running back Derrick Henry, Tennessee started to effectively run the football with a committee approach. The passing game should get a boost as wide receiver Julio Jones continues to get healthy and with the eventual return of A.J. Brown. The defense generated four turnovers and seemed to be reenergized after the bye week. Getting linebacker Bud Dupree back eventually will help further its improvement. Special teams have been mediocre. But a healthy Titans team will be in a good position to make a postseason push. -- Turron Davenport

NFL.com -- Rank: 12

The good news came in waves on Sunday: It started with a report that Derrick Henry (foot surgery) could return to the field as early as Week 18. Then there was Julio Jones, whose own return to the lineup surely produced a deep exhale of relief from beleaguered quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Finally, and most importantly, the Titans won a football game for the first time in nearly a month. The tape from a 20-0 shutout of the lowly Jaguars is unlikely to be shipped to Canton, but the victory was absolutely necessary as Mike Vrabel's team looks to navigate through its injury quagmire to lock up another AFC South title and make a push for the No. 1 seed.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 6

The defense impressed in shutting out the Jaguars. They now face a tough road game at Pittsburgh, but they pretty much own the division now.

USA Today -- Rank: 8

Two more wins guarantee an AFC South title repeat. A top seed would obviously be nice as well given Tennessee is 4-0 following a bye under coach Mike Vrabel.

The Athletic -- Rank: 8

Worst-case scenario: The Titans don't have all their offensive star power at their disposal in the playoffs. Since losing Derrick Henry in Week 8, they've ranked 24th in points per drive. Before that, they ranked seventh. Even with Julio Jones back in the lineup against the Jaguars in Week 14, the Titans scored just 20 points despite Jacksonville turning the ball over four times. Luckily for the Titans, A.J. Brown is eligible to return from injured reserve next week, and there's optimism in Nashville that Henry will be ready for the postseason.
