NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Titans may not have a game Sunday to help alleviate the sour taste from last week’s loss to the Colts, but as they take time away from the field, the optimism is high.
The Titans take a 1-2 record into the bye week but the evidence shows this team has certainly improved from last season.
The most noticeable differences come from the offense. Last season, the Titans were 30th in the league, scoring less than 16 points per game. So far this season, they are averaging over 29 points per contest.
The 2014 season saw a Titans team ranked 22nd in passing and 26th in rushing. So far this season, the Titans are 15th and 10th respectively.
“Let’s be real, let’s not even compare it to last year offensively. We’re doing a lot of things better,” says head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
The statistics certainly are encouraging, but they don’t erase the disappointment from Sunday.
“It’s hard right now. I mean, it’s tough,” says Whisenhunt. “That was a game where we had done a lot of good things. We’d come from 14 down, controlled the game and taken a 13-point lead against a good football team.”
The Titans next chance at a win is in two weeks when the Buffalo Bills come to Nissan Stadium. Kickoff is set for noon on Sunday, Oct. 11.
