The Titans' ability to score paired with their red zone defense is a nice combination. (Kuharsky) 7 7
Crazy win with the backup QB. 13-4 since starting 0-6 a year ago. 7
Kerry Collins gets the Titans another win, but WR Kenny Britt and Chuck Cecil’s defense are the real story in Nashville.
Sporting News 5
They're one of the league's most physical, hardest-playing teams, so big injuries always are a fear.

CBS Sports 8 13 That was quite a fourth quarter against the Eagles and speaks volumes about the character of this team. They battle to the end. Kenny Britt showed he should get the ball more.
SB Nation 7
Quietly the Titans have moved to 5-2 and a half game up in the division. Anyone else surprised that it's the Titans -- and not the Texans or Colts -- that lead the division through seven weeks?
Fox Sports 7

It also gave them wins over two NFC East contenders -- the Eagles and Giants (they also beat the Cowboys, but that hardly looks like an accomplishment now).

ProFootballTalk 4
Coach Jeff Fisher finally has figured out his quarterbacks. Kerry Collins plays well in the even years, and Vince Young plays well in the odd years.

MMQB 4 8 "We're a force right now,'' cornerback Alterraun Verner said Sunday, and no one who's been steamrollered by the Titans in the past 15 days -- Dallas, Jacksonville, Philadelphia -- is arguing.
