NASHVILLE, TN - SEPTEMBER 24: Quarterback Marcus Mariota /

How do the Tennessee Titans look after their win against the Seattle Seahawks?

The Tennessee Titans pulled off a spectacular win at home where at one point in the 3rd quarter they led 30-14.

Don’t let the final score fool you, the Titans dominated throughout much of the performance. If not for a few bad calls from the refs and some amazing escape act throws from Russell Wilson, the Titans would be getting a ton of hype today.

As it is, the Titans do sit at 2-1 after facing a pretty tough opening schedule. How does some national media people rank them?

NFL.com: 5 (Last week: 13)

“Huge plays abounded on Sunday, from the wide-receiver-screen-turned-home-run to Marcus Mariota heaving it deep to Jonnu Smith and DeMarco Murray long-striding behind a convoy of blockers. The Titans took care of business at home against a good team. That’s what Tennessee fans have been waiting to see: Could their squad pull off a W against a potential playoff contender? The defense leaked a bit Sunday, unlike in Week 2. That’s when Mariota and Tennessee’s offense produced in Nashville, to the tune of 33 points.”

-Elliot Harrison

Wow, what a HUGE jump this week from Harrison.

He has a great point about the big plays. Before Sunday the Titans were getting more chunk plays from Adoree Jackson than anyone on the offense.

    Bleacher Report: 10 (Last Week: 16)

    “The Titans just pulled off the most impressive win of the Mike Mularkey era. By stomping the Seahawks, the Titans have officially announced to the world they are a legit playoff contender.

    We haven’t seen many teams run the ball on this Seahawks defense the way the Titans did. DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry combined for nearly 170 yards, while the offensive line dominated up front. Quarterback Marcus Mariota was also impressive with some sound passing and designed runs.

    The Titans gave up some big-yardage plays late that let Seattle back in the game, but it was playing a prevent style most of the day. For what the Tennessee defense was trying to accomplish, it was phenomenal most of the day.

    It’s time the AFC starts taking the Titans seriously.”

    -Chris Simms

    A big jump here, but not Simms is not as impressed by the Titans as Harrison was.

    The takeaway here is that Tennessee put up one of the most dominant performances against the Seahawks in the Pete Carrol era. Not only that, but they did it while everyone on the Seattle defense was healthy.

    While some teams got to play Carrol and co. without Earl Thomas or Kam Chancelor or whatever the Titans took on a Seattle team at 100% and came out the other end with an impressive win. That needs to be noted.
