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

ESPN -- Rank: 9

Prediction we missed: QB Ryan Tannehill's slight regression.

It seemed like Tannehill had cemented himself as one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the NFL after finishing last season with 33 touchdowns and only seven interceptions. Adding Julio Jones to the mix was supposed to help elevate the Titans' passing attack. Tannehill hasn't had many opportunities to play with a fully healthy tandem of Jones and A.J. Brown because both receivers have been slowed by hamstring injuries. Tannehill already has thrown five interceptions through seven games. His QBR is down to 61.7, which is the lowest it has been since becoming the Titans' starter in 2019. Last season, Tannehill's QBR was 72.6. -- Turron Davenport

NFL.com -- Rank: 10

Just over three weeks ago, the Titans were embarrassed by the Jets, and the AFC South looked like a division that would produce a sub-.500 champion. Cut to late Sunday afternoon: Over seven days, Mike Vrabel's team knocked off the Bills and Chiefs -- both participants in January's AFC Championship Game. Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown once again paced the offense in Week 7, while Harold Landry led a Tennessee defense that made Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City's vaunted attack look vulnerable and weak. A win this week in Indianapolis will put the AFC South on lock before the calendar flips to November. Change happens fast in the NFL.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 8

That was an impressive showing against the Chiefs. If the defense can play like that the rest of the way, they will push for a Super Bowl with Derrick Henry leading the offense.

USA Today -- Rank: 6

All-Pro RB Derrick Henry is leading NFL in rushing yards (869) and TDs (10). Yawn. He's a legit MVP candidate because he's also tops in touches (209) and yards from scrimmage (1,023) and already has 18 receptions -- one off his career high. And now he's throwing TDs? This could get epic.

The Athletic -- Rank: 7

Trick or treat: The Titans are the AFC's hottest team, and Derrick Henry is the reason why. After what Henry did in a six-day span last week, you can't convince us he's not actually the Hulk masquerading as a football player. In case you need a reminder: 143 rushing yards and three touchdowns against Buffalo on "Monday Night Football" in Week 6, then 89 rushing yards and a passing touchdown against the Chiefs.
