The Tennessee Titans are rightly taking the top spot in the Week 11 NFL power rankings of some experts after winning their sixth-straight game with a 23-21 victory over the New Orleans Saints in Week 10.
One expert who does not have the Titans at No. 1 is USA TODAY’s Nate Davis, who places the Titans at No. 3, one spot up from where he had them last week.
3. Titans (4): No Derrick Henry and yet … they’re the second team to craft a five-game winning streak against playoff teams from the previous season – are actually 7-0 against 2020 playoff clubs – and have their longest winning streak (six games) in 13 years. The AFC’s projected top seed will also now face what is, by far, the easiest remaining schedule (.336 opponents’ winning percentage) in the league.
Making the Titans’ current run even more impressive is the fact that the team has had to field 82 different players this season due to injuries, which is just two short of the NFL record — and we still have seven games left.
That fact, along with the Titans’ 8-2 record, makes head coach Mike Vrabel a front-runner for NFL Coach of the Year.
Now, a look at the rest of our round-up, which includes multiple experts placing Tennessee in the top spot of their power rankings.
