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

ESPN -- Rank: 16

Fantasy surprise: WR Julio Jones

Since we are being forced to pick a positive surprise fantasy performer, Jones is the pick. Being out for most of training camp resulted in questions about developing chemistry with Ryan Tannehill early in the season. The two didn't seem like they were exactly on the same page in the season opener, when Jones finished with three receptions for 39 yards. But they rebounded in Week 2. After two games, Jones has caught nine of the 14 targets that have gone his way for a total of 157 yards. -- Turron Davenport

NFL.com -- Rank: 16

The Gritty & Gutty Effort Of The Week award belongs to the Titans, who stormed back from a 30-16 fourth-quarter deficit in Seattle to steal a 33-30 win in overtime. It was a big-time win against a premium opponent, made possible by a defense that tightened up when it mattered and a running back who's pretty much better than anybody else on the planet. Derrick Henry went off in the second half, scoring three touchdowns in the final two quarters -- doing it all behind an offensive line besieged by injuries. Henry's combination of size and speed remains breathtaking in action -- the acceleration away from cornerbacks he showed during his 60-yard scoring run shouldn't be physically possible. He is the Titans' ace in the hole. As long as he's on the field, they have a chance.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 17

That could have been a season-saving victory against the Seahawks. They showed a ton of fight in finding a way to rally on the road.

USA Today -- Rank: 12

Didn't take RB Derrick Henry long to vault back to the top of his customary place on the league rushing charts. He's currently the only player in the NFL who's exceeded 200 yards (240) and is on early pace for another 2,000-yard season, if only by virtue of the 17-game schedule.

The Athletic -- Rank: 17

This was an important bounce-back week for Ryan Tannehill after he and the Titans were steamrolled by the Cardinals in Week 1. Tennessee went back to what Tannehill does well -- leaning on the run game, relying heavily on play action and taking big shots when they're open. And speaking of taking shots: Julio Jones caught that touchdown in bounds and it's a travesty it was overturned.
