LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Coming off consecutive victories to get them to .500, coach Mike Vrabel told his Tennessee Titans there was much more to accomplish because half the NFL is 2-2 at this point.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Robert Woods spent last season with the Los Angeles Rams, yet even the veteran wide receiver saw from afar what the Tennessee Titans went through last season in playing an NFL-record 91 players.
Another season of fantasy football, another group of start-or-sit scenarios to answer.
It’s not just enough to draft the right team and make the right moves off the waiver wire. We all know that.
Ron Rivera is quick to point out Carson Wentz led the NFL in passing earlier this season when Washington’s starting quarterback had a clean pocket to throw from.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans have clawed their way back to .500 after an 0-2 start.
Thanks to playing in the AFC South, the two-time division champs no longer are sitting on the bottom looking up.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Derrick Henry got right back to business against the Indianapolis Colts.
He took on some defenders by slamming his big body through the line of scrimmage, eluded others in the open field and even turned receptions into key first downs.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — When Derrick Henry last visited Indianapolis, a third straight rushing crown seemed like a lock.
A broken foot and the rapid ascension of Jonathan Taylor ended Henry's two-year reign.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Scoring touchdowns early in games has not been an issue for the Tennessee Titans so far this season.
The third and fourth quarters have been a big problem with the Titans outscored 57-7 combined after halftime over the first three games.
COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — The Los Angeles Chargers placed wide receiver Jalen Guyton on injured reserve and claimed outside linebacker Derrek Tuszka off waivers on Tuesday.
Tuszka made his first NFL start for the Tennessee Titans in last week's win over the Las Vegas Raiders, getting two tackles.
All those close games that seemed to go the Las Vegas Raiders' way last season have ended up as losses so far in 2022.
That's left the Raiders as the NFL's only team with three losses in three weeks.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans finally made a stand on their home field and got the ball to Derrick Henry along with the rest of their new playmakers to notch their first victory of the season.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins’ defense stopped Josh Allen and the Bills at the goal line late, then held again after punter Thomas Morstead bizarrely kicked the ball off a teammate and out of bounds for a safety in a 21-19 win over Buffalo on Sunday.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Saving Ryan Tannehill from the Las Vegas Raiders' pass rush led by five-time Pro Bowl defensive end Chandler Jones seemed a difficult task for the Tennessee Titans.
Turns out Tannehill was sacked only once in Tennessee's 24-22 win Sunday over the Raiders.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans finally have their first victory this season.
Better yet? They think they found the winning recipe for many more.
Ryan Tannehill threw for 264 yards and a touchdown and ran for another score and the Tennessee Titans never trailed Sunday, holding off the Las Vegas Raiders 24-22 for their first victory this season.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans placed three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan on injured reserve Saturday after he hurt his right knee for the second time in three seasons.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans will start Dennis Daley at left tackle Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders with three-time Pro Bowler Taylor Lewan ruled out.
The Titans (0-2) also will be without starting outside linebacker Bud Dupree (hip), outside linebacker Ola Adeniyi and cornerback Ugo Amadi (ankle).
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans and Las Vegas Raiders are in an NFL group no team ever wants to be mired in: 0-2 and stuck at the bottom of their divisions.

THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. (AP) — After finishing his first practice for the Los Angeles Rams, edge rusher Takkarist McKinley understood a chance like this doesn’t come around very often.
HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Las Vegas Raiders linebacker Jayon Brown is looking forward to his return to Nashville, where he spent the first five years of his career with the Tennessee Titans.
Playing against former teammate Derrick Henry — that’s another story.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Kaiir Elam has lost track of just how many friends and family members will be at Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins.
“So many I can’t even count,” Elam said.
The homecoming for Buffalo’s first-round pick has the potential to be both special and quite the test.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — Two games into the season, the Super Bowl appears to be an attainable goal for the Buffalo Bills.
The Bills returned mostly the same offense that fell just short against Kansas City in a divisional-round thriller last year and retooled their defensive front with additions including Von Miller.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan did not practice Wednesday as the Tennessee Titans went through a walk-through session.
HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — The Las Vegas Raiders have played two fantastic halves of football.
They just haven’t been able to put together four good quarters in the same game.
Following their 24-19 loss at Los Angeles, in which they outscored the Chargers 16-7 in the second half, the Raiders squandered a 20-0 halftime lead and lost to Arizona 29-23 in overtime this past Sunday.
Nine home teams are underdogs in Week 3.
Behind the Dawg Pound, the Cleveland Browns aren't among them.
The Browns host the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night to kick off a week featuring more road favorites than home.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The NFL suspended Buffalo Bills backup offensive lineman Bobby Hart for one game on Tuesday, a day after he took a swing at a Titans player and instead struck a Tennessee coach in the head following a 41-7 win.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — One of the remarkable things about the Buffalo Bills starting the season at 2-0 is the manner in how they’ve steamrolled opponents while missing several key players in addition to the lopsided margins of victory.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — A photo of cornerback Dane Jackson smiling alongside safety Micah Hyde as both players left the hospital was all it took to ease the mind of Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott on Tuesday morning.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel has two-time NFL rushing champ Derrick Henry, and the reigning AP NFL Coach of the Year is doubling down.
Yes, despite the Titans' first 0-2 start in a decade and coming off the ugliest loss of his tenure in a 41-7 loss to Buffalo on Monday night.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans are 0-2 for the first time in a decade, and reeling from their most lopsided loss in five seasons under coach Mike Vrabel.
Something needs to change for a team that had the best record in the AFC last year.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Buffalo Bills cornerback Dane Jackson suffered a neck injury in a collision with a teammate on Monday night and was taken to a hospital for evaluation.
Jackson had full movement in his limbs, but coach Sean McDermott didn’t have an update beyond that on the player’s condition following a 41-7 win over the Tennessee Titans.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — If the Buffalo Bills are making some sort of loud statement by opening their season with consecutive routs, quarterback Josh Allen isn’t about to raise his voice.
As he did following a 31-10 win over the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams, Allen dismissed questions about the message the Bills sent by throttling the Tennessee Titans 41-7 in Buffalo's home opener on Monday night.
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Josh Gordon’s latest attempt to reboot his career will come on Monday night after the Tennessee Titans promoted the receiver from the practice squad for their game against the Buffalo Bills.
Tennessee defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons practiced regularly against left guard Rodger Saffold since the Titans drafted him in 2019.
Now Simmons gets his first chance at Saffold able to go full speed Monday night when the Titans visit Buffalo with Saffold in his first season with the Bills.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills starting defensive tackle Ed Oliver was ruled out and his backup, Tim Settle, listed as doubtful on Saturday, leaving Buffalo potentially thin in the middle against running back Derrick Henry and the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills quarterback Josh Allen feigned ignorance when asked if he winced while watching video of him getting stuffed on fourth down near the goal line in the final seconds of a loss to Tennessee last year.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's best wide receiver the past three seasons now plays in Philadelphia, and the Titans turned to a group approach to help replace A.J.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Better angles.
It’s the two words Panthers defensive coordinator Phil Snow has been preaching all this week to his players after Carolina allowed 217 yards rushing in a 26-24 loss to the Cleveland Browns in Week 1.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The only thing that seemingly matters to Saquon Barkley entering his fifth season with the New York Giants is winning.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 draft seemingly didn't care he was selected as the NFC Offensive Player of the week after a win over Tennessee, or that he leads the NFL in rushing (164 yards) or total yards from scrimmage (194) after Week 1.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Giants starting cornerback Aaron Robinson had his appendix removed on Wednesday and he will miss New York's home opener this weekend against the Carolina Panthers.
Giants coach Brian Daboll informed reporters of the surgery before practice.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans placed defensive back A.J. Moore and defensive lineman Da'Shawn Hand on injured reserve Tuesday.
The Titans also signed defensive back Nate Brooks to the practice squad.
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After five consecutive losing seasons, it's hard to put into perspective the New York Giants' 21-20 win over the Tennessee Titans in Brian Daboll's debut as head coach.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee's opening schedule looked daunting from the moment the NFL released a slate sending the Titans on the road for five of their first eight games.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Titans started exactly the way they wanted, jumping out to a double-digit lead.
Finishing was the issue.
The Titans blew a 13-point lead Sunday, then drove down the field to set up Randy Bullock for a 47-yard field goal to beat the New York Giants.
