Hasselbeck, Wright Thriving on Third Down

Posted by Gary Glenn on October 31, 2012 – 1:29 pm

The Titans offense has two of the NFL’s top performers on third down in 2012. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck has a 102.8 passer rating on third down, ranking him sixth in the league and fourth in the AFC. He has completed 43 of 58 passes (74.1 percent) for 482 yards, two touchdowns and only one interception.

Highest NFL passer rating on third down in 2012:

117.1 – Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh)
111.3 – Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay)
110.2 – Tom Brady (New England)
106.8 – Peyton Manning (Denver)
106.4 – Michael Vick (Philadephia)
102.8 – Matt Hasselbeck (Tennessee)

Meanwhile, rookie wide receiver Kendall Wright leads the entire NFL with 19 total receptions on third down. Wright posted 15 of his third-down receptions in October, an NFL high for the month. His totals include a 23-yard touchdown reception from Hasselbeck on third-and-11 last week against the Colts.

Most receptions on third down in 2012:

19 – Kendall Wright (Tennessee)
17 – Wes Welker (New England)
16 – Michael Crabtree (San Francisco)
16 – Victor Cruz (N.Y. Giants)
16 – Brandon Marshall (Chicago)
16 – Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis).

Wright not only leads the league in receptions on third down but also has been consistently converting the plays to first downs. Out of his 19 third-down catches, 14 have resulted in first downs for the Titans. He is tied with Colts receiver Reggie Wayne for the most third-down conversions among receivers in 2012.

Most third-down receptions for a first down in 2012:

14 – Kendall Wright (Tennessee)
14 – Reggie Wayne (Indianapolis)
13 – Victor Cruz (N.Y. Giants)
13 – Percy Harvin (Minnesota)

    Glad to have you in Nashville Kendall, sorry we’re having a down year but seeing you and Nate Washington haul in passes every Sunday gives me hope. I also hope our defense shapes up and helps you out too. GO TITANS!!!
