Chris Johnson had perhaps the most talked about above average, yet disappointing season in fantasy football history during 2011. But in 2012, I’m all in on Chris Johnson, and the Tennessee Titans offense leading to an AFC South title. Looking past the obvious numbers last season, only four rushing touchdowns and a little over 1,000 yards [...]
Rookie wide receiver Kendall Wright will start week one for the Titans, as Kenny Britt serves his one game suspension for a DUI arrest. Wright, a former star at Baylor University, has played well in his first preseason with nine catches for 116 yards and a touchdown.

From the Tennessee Titans "Music City Miracle" to an extra point blocked to prevent a tie game, NFL special teams play an important role in determining a team's ultmate success, right? Well maybe not so fast.
Comments on the Tennessee Titans by the AP Pro32 panel (ranking in parentheses):

Clifton Brown (Sporting News, 20) - Last year they went 9-7, but were largely overlooked outside Nashville. I see a similar scenario in 2012.
