15. player. 35. <p>Justin Hunter dropping that first-quarter bomb from Zach Mettenberger forecasted the rest of the Titans’ afternoon in Week 7. This was a game that was very much within the reach of Ken Whisenhunt thanks to a standout performance from the defense, but it just wasn’t in the cards. At least Kendall Wright got in the end zone.</p> <p>Despite the loss, the Titans actually leapfrog to the No. 15 spot as a result of the Texans completely embarrassing themselves in Week 7. The Colts aren’t exactly hogging the AFC South throne right now, so a win next week in Houston and another Indy loss could catapult these losers of five straight back into the fight for football’s weakest division.</p>. AFC South. 1-5. Tennessee Titans

Next: 14. Baltimore Ravens
