The 2020 Tennessee Titans offense will be remembered as one of the best in its history.
It’s not usual to witness a Titans offense that can move the ball as well as this one does. However, they make it look easy because it has playmakers at every skill position and a quarterback that is hot.
We’ve already discussed that running back Derrick Henry has a legitimate path to 2,000 yards. He didn’t get off to a hot start versus the Cleveland Browns, but he’s still just under 700 yards away.
Now let’s talk about another feat the Titans’ offense could accomplish.
A couple #Titans stats to keep your eyes on the next 4 games:
Ryan Tannehill needs 575 yds. to break the Titans single season passing yards record.
AJ Brown (725) and Corey Davis (801) can become the first duo since Derrick Mason and Drew Bennett in 2004 to have 1,000 yds. each.

A.J. Brown and Corey Davis are probably one of the more underrated wide receiver duos in the National Football League.
Despite the Tennessee Titans being a run-first unit, they have two receivers on pace for 1,000 yards. As you saw in the tweet, the last time it happened for the Titans was Derrick Mason and Drew Bennett.
Can it be done?
Well, much like teammate Derrick Henry, their road is favorable. The Titans have the Jaguars, Lions, Packers, and Texans remaining on their schedule.
The highest-ranked pass defense in that group belongs to the Green Bay Packers at 11th. The rest all come in at the bottom half of the league: Houston at 21, Detroit at 26, and Jacksonville at 29.
Corey Davis needs to average about 50 yards per game for the rest of the season to reach 1,000. A.J. Brown needs to average just a little more, 69 yards per game.
Davis is averaging 80.1 yards per game this season already. Mathematically, he should blow right past 1,000 yards. The same could be said for Brown, who is averaging 72.5 per game.
These wide receivers are explosive for the Tennessee Titans. So yes, it can be done. If the Titans’ offense stays hot, we could see two 1,000-yard receivers in this offense. Impressive.
