Stat Sheet: Titans' Time of Possession, Rush & Pass Numbers Increase in 2013

Posted Dec 30, 2013

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Titans’ offense improved in 2013 over 2012 in multiple statistical categories.

Tennessee scored 32 more points, gained 51 more first downs, 380 more yards and improved its time of possession from a league-low 27:18 a year ago to 30:00 minutes.

“Statistically, every stat you can come up with pretty much as far as numbers we improved upon on offense,” Titans coach Mike Munchak said. “The biggest one for me was time of possession. I think it went from 32nd to middle of the pack to 16. That was a big thing we talked about with controlling the ball, controlling the line of scrimmage, keeping the defense off the field. I thought that was a lot better. There’s categories, and I just thought we did better in those areas. We won one more game, which wasn’t the goal. You need to win more than that.”

The Titans increased their first downs obtained by rushing by 33 and ran for 207 more yards. Tennessee also threw for 173 more passing yards and boosted its completion percentage from 58.9 to 61.5 percent.

One of the most significant gains the Titans made was in goal-to-go conversions. Tennessee went inside opponents’ 10-yard line 13 more times than in 2012 and scored touchdowns 79.2 percent of the time it did so (19-for-24).

The Titans finished the 2013 season at 7-9, and turnover ratio proved to be the most important stat. When Tennessee was even or had a positive turnover ratio, it was 7-2, and when it had a negative turnover ratio it was 0-7.
