Tennessee Titans: Reviewing Week 4 Keys to Victory vs. New York Jets

Maybe the biggest difference between these two clubs: turnover differential. The Titans (+5) are one of four teams with at least a +5 advantage in takeaways. The other three teams are all undefeated. The Jets (-6) are 30th out of 32. The other two teams are winless.

If the Titans protect the football, the Titans protect their house.

REALITY: Four takeaways. 28 points. The Titans started their season with four consecutive games without a giveaway.

Having that type of success with turnover differential makes all the other keys of victories almost pointless.

HUGE SUCCESS (4 of 6)

Finishing Drives

One of the biggest reasons for the Jets’ 2-1 start: red-zone defense. Even if an offense plays poorly, they can remain within striking distance if the defense can keep their opponents scoring 3s instead of 7s. Can the Titans score touchdowns against one of the NFL’s top-tier defenses?

REALITY: Four takeaways. 28 points. The Titans defense made the big plays. The offense finished the drives.

SUCCESS (5 of 7)
