Tennessee Titans NFL Power Rankings: Week 0
By Will Lomas
Bleacher Report, Tennessee Titans: 14
What are they saying:
"…The Titans don’t have a ton of holes, although the pass rush and offensive line are nicked up to open the year. But Tennessee also isn’t dominant in any single area. We just aren’t sure how good this team is yet. But given that early slate, we should have a much better idea soon enough. And the Titans could be set to play chutes and ladders in these rankings—for better or worse."
This is a really good way to describe the Titans in my opinion. As I have said before I think Tennessee has a top-10 roster from top to bottom. They really don’t have any holes. Sure wide receiver could be bolstered and maybe an elite player at a few position groups would be nice but no holes.
The other side of that coin is true too. While the Titans are solid everywhere they don’t really have a dominant position group, although defensive back could and should be that by the end of the year.
You could also point to running back, offensive line and pass rushers as a dominant if everyone gets healthy.
The early slate should give us a great indicator of what the Titans are early. After the Dolphins, the Titans have back to back AFC South matchups that should go a long way in figuring out which one of the three good AFC South teams will make the playoffs and if there is a strong contender for a wildcard.
If the Titans do well early they will be in the drivers seat in the division given the rest of the AFCS’s schedule. If not, then they will have to get well quickly and figure out a way to win.
