player. 35. <p>As a result of getting absolutely spanked by the New York Jets in Week 14, the Texans take up the rear of the pack in these week’s AFC power rankings. Pretty much the only good part of the day was Marcus Mariota’s 41-yard touchdown reception from Antonio Andrews. If it’s any comfort to Titans fans, those all-whites are one of the best looks in the entire league.</p> <p>What really plagued the Titans on Sunday was the run game. They ran for just 24 yards (that includes Mariota’s scrambling) and allowed 183 yards on the ground to the Jets. That’s nearly a ratio of 1:8.</p> <p>The road ahead leads one to believe that the Titans’ victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 13 will be their last of the season, as Mike Mularkey’s squad travels to New England, hosts Houston and then finishes the year on the road in Indy.</p>. AFC South. 3-10. Tennessee Titans. 16

Next: 15. Baltimore Ravens
