Last week: 17 (-1)
The Titans are much improved over a season ago, but they have had good luck with turnovers that will probably not continue going forward. Their +5 turnover differential is tied for 4th best in the NFL and it’s not like they are forcing a ton of takeaways, forcing 5 through 3 games. It’s just that Jake Locker hasn’t thrown an interception on 87 attempts, which won’t continue. It’s not like he’s excelling in other areas as a passer (though he did rush for 68 yards on 5 attempts last week), completing 58.6% of his passes for an average of 6.6 YPA. They are also recovering 85.7% of all fumbles, tied for best in the NFL, which is highly unlikely to continue.

If a rookie could choose a way to start their career, catching a game winning touchdown pass might be towards the top of the list. In a come-from-behind win against the San Diego Chargers, rookie wide out, Justin Hunter, caught a 34-yard, game-winning touchdown pass to record not only his first touchdown in the NFL but his first reception.
Trailing by four points with no timeouts...
Jim Wyatt opines that the Titans would listen to trade offers from NFL teams inquiring about WR Kenny Britt.
Wyatt adds that he’s “skeptical they’d be able to get much for [Britt].“
Britt’s stock has dropped considerably since his breakout 2010 season. He’s had multiple off-the-field issues in the past few years and hasn’t been able to produce for the Titans this...
The Tennessee Titans will go as far this season as Jake Locker takes them.
That's been the conventional wisdom since owner Bud Adams approved spending more than $100 million to shore up the defense, better protect the young quarterback and to give Locker more help on offense.
Now Locker is coming off arguably his best game in just his 14th start. Locker, Peyton Manning and...
Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker will miss a ''few weeks'' with a sprained hip, and the Titans say they are encouraged by the news from a second MRI exam.

Titans receiver Kenny Britt says he has a small crack in one of his ribs that won't stop him from playing - or catching passes - against the New York Jets on Sunday.

Bernard Pollard plays football like he's angry at the world.
Yet in the hours before kickoff he avoids the expletive-filled lyrics so many players rely on to get in the mood for a violent game. The fiery Titans safety sings a much different tune which doesn't exactly match his public persona.
"He'll be walking around the locker room singing gospel music" teammate...
Titans tight end Delanie Walker missed Thursday's practice due to turf toe but says if he practices Friday as he expects to do, he'll play Sunday.Fantasy Spin:Walker has nine catches, 99 yards and a touchdown through three games and is a fantasy non-factor going into Week 4 against the Jets.
BY NICK ST. DENISLast spring, running back Shonn Greene likely circled this week on the calendar when he saw his Tennessee Titans were facing his former team, the New York Jets.Unfortunately, the only circling he'll do Sunday, if he's even present, is circling the field during warmups.Greene won't be a go for the Titans' Week 4 bout with Gang Green, as he's recovering...

Strong defenses have been the story for the two. The Jets were...
