Tennessee Titans milestones on the line vs Houston Texans
By Will Lomas
Which Tennessee Titans players have milestones within reach on Sunday?
Win and you are in, that is the most important thing for the Tennessee Titans this weekend.
However, anytime you hear someone say that they aren’t paying attention to their own stats or anything like that, you should be a little bit skeptical.
So when it comes to major milestones, you can bet that some players are quietly counting yards, tackles or other stats throughout the game to see where they end up.
Looking at those, these are the players with the best chance at hitting important numbers.
Harold Landry: 10 sacks, 16 TFLs
Aside from 10 sacks being the arbitrary barrier for the general public deciding whether or not a pass rusher is good or overrated, by hitting double digits it would mean that he is the 7th Tennessee Titans player since the franchise moved from Texas.
If he could hit both of those numbers (so he would need a 1 sack, 2.5 TFL day) he would join Jason Babin as the only player in Oilers/Titans history with double digit sacks AND 16 TFLs.
A.J. Brown: 1,000 yards
If Brown manages to hit 1,000 yards in his rookie season he will be the first Titans player to ever do it. However, there is an even bigger milestone he could hit here.
I have no words for how incredibly impressive that is.
Derrick Henry: 1,500 yards, 15 TDs
Even though Henry missed a game last week and hasn’t been healthy in the last month, there is an outside chance that he could have a 171 yard and 2 TD kind of game. It wouldn’t even been his first time hitting those numbers this year.
If he can do that only he and Ezekiel Elliott in 2016 will have been able to hit 1,500 rushing yards and 15 TDs in a season where they played less than 16 games.
Jonnu Smith: 500 yards
While this isn’t quite as impressive as the other stats, with a good game Jonnu Smith could become the first tight end not named Delanie Walker, to have 500 yards receiving since 2012.

Ryan Tannehill: 29 total TDs
I think the math is right on this, but if Ryan Tannehill can have a 5 TD game regardless of whether those come through the air or on the ground, he will be the first Tennessee Titans quarterback to have more than 28 total TDs in a season.
And he has a chance to do it in 10 games. Insane.
Logan Ryan: 5 INTs
Logan Ryan has had an exceptional year in 2019, but the lack of pressure down the stretch and the fact that the Titans aren’t really doing themselves any favors with play calling has sort of hurt what should have been an historic season.
However, if Ryan can get an interception on Sunday it would be his 5th of the season and he would tie his career high.
Jeffery Simmons: 7 TFLs
This is a long shot, but if a rested Simmons can manage 2.5 TFLs then he will join Jurrell Casey, Karl Klug and Albert Haynesworth as the only rookie DTs to have 7 TFLs in their rookie season and like Tannehill, he did it in an abbreviated season.
