Midseason review: A by-the-numbers look at the Titans as they hit the halfway point

By John Glennon

With a critical game AFC South game against Indianapolis on tap in just a few days, the Titans won’t have much time to reflect on the season’s midpoint.

All things considered, however, the team has to be feeling pretty good about where things stand.

The fact the Titans sit atop the division at 6-2 is impressive in its own right, as it marks the team’s best eight-game start since the 2008 club went 8-0 on the way to a 10-0 record. But the mark looks even better given the unforeseen circumstances – a widespread COVID-19 outbreak that forced the team from its facility for nearly two weeks, sidelined multiple players and forced the re-scheduling of two games.

“I’m going to hold on to the midseason report,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said when asked for an eight-game evaluation. But Vrabel did acknowledge that as the Titans hit the halfway point, “we’ve put ourselves in a position to, again, play a lot of meaningful football games in the second half of the season.”

Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the season’s first half, and a peek ahead to what might be in store over the next eight weeks:

5 –

The number of consecutive games in which Titans wide receiver A.J. Brown has caught a touchdown pass. Among receivers who’ve played six or fewer games, Brown’s six touchdown catches overall rank second in the NFL behind Green Bay’s Davante Adams (eight). If Brown’s pace holds, he’ll post 14 TD receptions for the season, which would nearly double his rookie total of eight.

7 –

The number of missed field goals by the Titans’ Stephen Gostkowski, who’s packed plenty of ups and downs into his eight-game tenure here.
