The Titans made some big moves up power rankings last week after they beat the Lions. They would have made another big jump this week and even been in some serious conversations about being a contender had they beat the Raiders. But, in case you missed it, they didn’t.
There is a lot of blame to go around for that loss. Mike Mularkey said in his press conference yesterday that they need to coach better, the players need to play better and the officials need to officiate better. That seems like a pretty good summary of the game to me.
Here is where the Titans rank in the various power rankings around the league:
SB Nation: 25 (LW:26)
NFL.com: 26 (LW:22)
FOX Sports: 21 (LW:23)
ESPN: 26 (LW:21)
Washington Post: 24 (LW:19)
