Screen Shot 2022 11 30 at 7.56.57 PMNASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Sunday's game in Philadelphia is about a lot more than A.J. Brown. 

But it's OK to start the conversation with Brown, the receiver who maneuvered his way to the Eagles in a draft day trade and left the Titans undermanned at receiver even if they've been better lately.

The Eagles are the NFL's best team and will provide a lot of challenges for Tennessee, which is coming off a home loss to the Bengals.

Mike Herndon: Breaking down what's going on with Derrick Henry and the Titans run game

By MIKE HERNDON, columnist

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Over the course of his incredible NFL career, Derrick Henry has always gained steam as the season wore on. Over the course of his career his stats by month tell a very clear story:

Those splits look very different in 2022. Henry averaged 64 yards per game while averaging 3.56 yards per carry in September with just two total touchdowns. October brought what looked to be a breakout with Henry ripping off four straight 100-plus yard performances, averaging 141 yards per game at a 5.63 yards per carry rate and tacking on a total of five touchdowns.

However, a terrible November saw Henry’s numbers come crashing back to earth. He averaged just 73 yards per game at 3.62 yards per carry and three total touchdowns.

Scout's take: How the Bengals stopped Derrick Henry

By BLAKE BEDDINGHFIELD, special correspondent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans still haven’t beaten a team with a winning record at the time of the game in all of their seven wins. The Commanders have a winning record now, but they were 1-4 when the Titans faced them on Oct. 9.

Both the Titans and Bengals played about equally throughout the game.

Neither team was very sharp, and each had some very important players out with injuries.

Joe Burrow and Ryan Tannehill had stretches of accuracy and in-rhythm throws but also had lapses of inconsistent passes. Wide receivers for both teams made outstanding catches to sustain drives.

PK112722NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Well, the Titans are 2-2 in their last four after losing Sunday to the Bengals. 

They don't control their schedule, but everyone good on it that they've played so far they've lost to, unless you consider the Commanders good, in which case Tennessee's 7-4 record includes a 1-4 mark against quality opponents.

This is concerning, as was the team losing in the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball in the 20-16 loss to Cincinnati, the late unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that undid a chance to mount a trying or winning drive and the effect of the absence of Denico Autry and Ben Jones.

Many of you joined me to discuss those issues and whatever else is on your mind.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans finally ran into good and good was better than they were. And that’s not a good indication of what’s to come in the playoffs.

The Titans are still the third seed in the AFC after a 20-16 loss to the Bengals at Nissan Stadium where they got pushed around by the team that knocked them out of the playoffs here as the No. 1 seed last season.

Tennessee (7-4) has lost to Buffalo, Kansas City and Cincinnati, the three teams it’s faced that are currently in the AFC playoff field and the Giants, one of two teams it's faced that is in the current NFC playoff field.

Its lone win against a team with a winning record and a current playoff spot came on Oct. 9 in Washington.

All week the Titans banged the drum that this was not a revenge game tied to last year’s playoff disaster, and that’s a good thing because there was no vengeance here. The Bengals are not known for withstanding physical teams well and the Titans are typically the aggressors.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Holiday weekend greetings.

I hope you had a big Thanksgiving, cheered on the U.S. at the World Cup Friday and have plenty to keep you happy between now and the Titans’ kickoff against the Bengals.

Scout's take: Jeffery Simmons must beat double teams for Titans

By BLAKE BEDDINGFIELD, special correspondent

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Titans want to avenge a playoff loss to the Bengals last season and Cincinnati is looking to continue its winning ways to get atop the AFC North.

The Titans still haven’t beaten a team that currently has a winning record. Sunday they get that chance.

The Titans are comfortable at the top of the AFC South, but they must start to win games that matter.

The Bengals are a playoff-caliber team with playoff-caliber offensive skill players.
