Titans Defense Ranks Among NFL’s Best Early On

Posted by Gary Glenn on September 28, 2011 – 11:20 am

Through the first three weeks of the season, the Titans have fielded one of the top defenses in the NFL. They currently rank first overall in yards allowed per contest:

1. Tennessee Titans (261.0)

2. Pittsburgh Steelers (263.3)

3. Cincinnati Bengals (276.3)

On a scoring basis, the Titans rank second in the NFL, allowing only 14.3 points per game:

1. Baltimore Ravens (13.3)

2. Tennessee Titans (14.3)

3. Detroit Lions (15.3)

Credit new defensive coordinator Jerry Gray and the defensive coaching staff for getting the Titans to produce at a high level early on with little time to get in sync following the lockout.

    The D has definitely improved. But it sure helps when your offense can sustain drives and not a bunch of 3 and outs like in recent years.

    With a guy like Barrett Ruud in the mix now it greatly improves our defense. Back in the day we always had a great line and linebacking crew. CB’s have always been a little subject however, not superized to see us back towards the top. Now to see out offense do something??

    I think the titan’s D has definitely stepped up. Shoutout to our new defensive coordinator. Our new team demeanor about ourselves has changed. We face the steelers in a couple of weeks, and I knowour secondary has a treat for him. I predict the scoree will be 27 to 17 Tennessee.
