Projecting the Tennessee Titans stat leaders

NASHVILLE, TN - NOVEMBER 05: Kevin Byard /

Where will the Tennessee Titans stat leaders end up at the end of the year.

That is it, the Tennessee Titans have hit the halfway point in the season.

The first thing that comes to mind knowing that is, man this season has gone by quickly. Just like every season it seems like you spend an eternity waiting for it only for it to fly by.

After that my next thought is that I wonder where the Titans are headed. We know that after a great home stand Tennessee is 5-3 and 2-1 in the division. That makes you think that a 10-6 season could be on the horizon, but there is a long way to go before that.

One thing that is easier to do is extrapolate some stats. Let’s look at where the Titans leaders project to end the season.

More from Titans News


Marcus Mariota: 258 for 408 (63.2%), 3,038 passing yards, 260 rush yards, 18 Total TDs, 5 INTs

-That is a pretty decent statline for this offense. You are rarely going to have someone throw for 4,000+ in this run heavy scheme. Especially when you miss games and don’t have your WR1 for half the season.


DeMarco Muray: 782 yards (4.1 YPC), 4 TDs

Derrick Henry: 714 yards (4.3 YPC), 6 TDs

-Not the season we wanted to see from these running backs. I think if everyone was honest everyone would say that the Titans rushing game has been disappointing all around.

The blocking isn’t exceptional and when they open a nice lane the running back is usually hesitant or misses it. There seems to be no consistency or chemistry until late in games. While that can be worked on, it will be a hard road to get there.

    -This is sort of what I thought would happen, but the big issue is that Corey Davis will be lucky to get to 500 yards after struggling with an injury at the beginning of the year.

    Still, Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker are having good years and if the passing game opens up more with Corey Davis healthy they could have a chance at the thousand yard mark.

    Kevin Byard: 90 tackles, 4 TFLs, 12 INTs, 20 PBUs

    Wesley Woodyard: 142 tackles, 12 TFLs, 4 sacks, 6 PBUs

    Adoree Jackson: 70 tackles, 2 TFLs, 14 PBUs

    Logan Ryan: 62 tackles, 4 TFLs, 14 PBUs

    Jurrell Casey: 6 sacks, 4 TFLs

    Brian Orakpo: 3 sacks, 4 TFLs

    Derrick Morgan: 10 sacks, 2 TFLs

    -These are the players that popped out to me. First of all, Kevin Byard is projected to have more interceptions than any player at any position since 1980 when Lester Hayes had 13.

    Woodyard is quietly having the best season by a Titans linebacker since prime Keith Bulluck. I would be shocked if he every is asked to leave the field by the Titans this year.

    Adoree Jackson and Logan Ryan  have been a formidable coverage tandem this year and are on pace to be one of the better duos in the NFL.

    Casey, Orakpo and Morgan were supposed to have a dominant year this year with some help on the back end. However, only Morgan is holding up his end of the bargain as a pass rusher.

    19 sacks as a trio is not going to cut it and if there isn’t a big improvement I have to think Jon Robinson looks hard at that spot in the draft and in free agency.
