Since the Titans do not rely on the pass nearly as much as many other NFL teams, it is hard to compare the stats of Tennessee’s receivers and tight ends to other teams’. Nate Washington is tied for 32 in the league in receiving yards, while Kendall Wright is tied for 35 and Delanie Walker is 22 among tight ends.

Although they are not putting up game-breaking numbers, they are playing well within the offense. The fact that the Titans’ top two receivers have 439 and 433 yards this season speaks more to the passing attack’s balance than its mediocrity. At this rate, Washington is on track to just crack 1,000 yards and Wright is projected to fall 10 yards short of the milestone.

If Tennessee is able to get two receivers over the 1,000 yard mark, it would be the first time that the team has done so since Drew Bennett and Derrick Mason both broke 1,000 yards in 2004.
