Zero Turnover Streak Continues

_1DJ2890The Titans completed their fourth consecutive game last Sunday without committing a turnover, becoming only the second NFL team in the Super Bowl era (1966-present) to have zero interceptions and zero lost fumbles through the first four games.

This week, the Titans could set a new NFL record by starting the season with five turnover-free games.

Most consecutive games at the beginning of a season without a turnover in the Super Bowl era (1966–present):

4 – Tennessee Titans (2013 – streak is current)
4 – St. Louis Rams (1995)
3 – Kansas City Chiefs (2013)
3 – New England Patriots (1998)
3 – Detroit Lions (1984)

However, the task will be challenging against the Kansas City Chiefs. Entering this weekend’s games, the Titans and Chiefs are tied atop the NFL with net turnover differentials of plus-nine.

The Titans have collected five interceptions and four fumbles on defense without turning over the ball on offense. The Chiefs have forced 12 turnovers (five interceptions and seven fumble recoveries), while their offense has lost only two interceptions and one fumble.

“You will win a lot of football games when you don’t turn the ball over,” head coach Mike Munchak said following Sunday’s game.

Added cornerback Alterraun Verner, who leads the NFL with six defensive turnovers, including four interceptions: “The work still isn’t done. That’s just the first quarter of the season. We have a lot more football to play.”

    Thats funny because the JETS fans were saying the same thing. Lets see the Chiefs are 4-0 but they played a winless Jacksonville team, a winless Gaints team.
    They also played the Eagles who are 1-3 also the Cowboys who are 2-2. Only 3 wins out of 4 teams..
