Block Party: Titans Among Best Over Last Decade

Posted by Gary Glenn on November 3, 2011 – 10:35 am

This just in from our media relations department:

Last week against the Colts, the Titans notched their second blocked punt of the season when Patrick Bailey stepped in front of a Pat McAfee punt attempt. Jason McCourty recovered the ball in the end zone for a touchdown. Two games earlier at Pittsburgh, Tim Shaw blocked a punt for the Titans.

The two blocked punts in the team’s first seven games of 2011 tied the team record for punt blocks in a season (1973, 1962, 1972 & 1999).

Under special teams coach Alan Lowry, who moved into his current position in 1999, the Titans have fielded one of the NFL’s best punt-blocking units. The team’s 10 total blocks in that time period is tied for second in the NFL behind only the Oakland Raiders.

Here’s a list of the most blocked punts since 1999 when Alan Lowry took over as special teams coach for the Titans.

Most Blocked Punts Since 1999

Oakland Raiders 11

Tennessee Titans 10

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10

Kansas City Chiefs 9

San Francisco 49ers 8

Jacksonville Jaguars 7

New York Jets 7

Baltimore Ravens 6

Chicago Bears 6

Denver Broncos 6

New Orleans Saints 6

Washington Redskins 6
