Let’s take a look at where the Titans rank around the league in various statistical categories:
Yards per game
Rushing yards per game
Passing yards per game
Points per game
Yards allowed per game
Rushing yards allowed per game
Passing yards allowed per game
Points allowed per game
A few observations:
- 3rd in the league in rushing. Smashmouth indeed!
- The passing yards per game number would be higher if the Jaguars and the Packers could have kept pace. How many times have we been able to say that over the years??
- The rushing defense is really only doing so well because the pass defense is so bad. Most teams will chose the path of least resistance. That is throwing the ball against the Titans.
- The Titans are top 10 in the league in points. Maybe Lambert has a point....
