  • Average ranking: 6.2 (6th)
  • Best ranking: 5th (USA Today)
  • Worst ranking: 7th (Multiple)

Below you will find a Week 13 roundup for the Titans in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 6

Exceeding expectations: One trait that every coach tries to foster is resilience. Who's more resilient than the Titans? They came back against the Steelers earlier this season even though they still lost by three. And they overcame a second-half deficit to beat the Ravens. Mike Vrabel's team doesn't just want to win. It wants to do so while throwing two middle fingers at its opponents. The Titans are 8-3 and in first place in the AFC South. They are going to be a tough out in the postseason.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 7

They are in first place in the division and have done it with two impressive road victories. They face a tough one this week with the Browns.

USA Today -- Rank: 5

RB Derrick Henry is hitting high gear and, given his historical late-season production, must be considered an MVP candidate and threat to rush for 2,000 yards.

ESPN -- Rank: 7

Most important game remaining: Week 13 vs. Cleveland

The race for an AFC playoff spot is extremely tight. The Titans have the No. 3 seed and are one of three teams with an 8-3 record. The Browns happen to be one of those teams. A win over Cleveland has double value in that it keeps the Titans ahead of the Colts and counts as a much-needed win over an AFC opponent. All three of Tennessee's losses have been against AFC opponents, so avoiding another one would be a major boost for the Titans' playoff hopes. -- Turron Davenport -- Rank: 6

The Titans entered Sunday believing they were the best team in the AFC South, and they ended the day having proved it in a 45-26 win over the Colts. It was Derrick Henry who led the way, of course, rushing for 140 yards and three touchdowns in the first half alone on his way to a 178-yard performance on 27 carries. Henry has now gone over 100 yards in each of his past three games against Colts, an achievement made even more impressive by the fact that Indianapolis has not allowed any other rusher to surpass the century mark since the start of last season. This is Derrick Henry season, and no one should be surprised if he continues to crank out monster games from here on out. This is a man who feasts on tired and depleted opponents in December.
