Titans-Eagles Postgame Notes

221204-final

TEAM NOTES

·      The Titans had nine different offensive players catch at least one pass and five players record at least one rushing attempt. Their 12 total players with at least one scrimmage touch established a season high through 12 games, while the nine pass-catchers tied the team's season high, which was originally set in the season opener against the New York Giants (Sept. 11).

·      Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and tight end Chig Okonkwo connected for a 41-yard completion in the second quarter. It was the Titans' 11th passing play of 30-plus yards since Week 8 at Houston. Through the early afternoon games of Dec. 4, the Titans' 11 such plays over the six-week span were the most in the NFL.

·      Running back Julius Chestnut became the 76th member of the team to play in a game in 2022. The Titans' 75 players entering the week were the second most in the league behind only the Arizona Cardinals' 77 players used.

·      With right tackle Nicholas Petit-Frere, cornerback Roger McCreary and wide receiver Treylon Burks all starting the game, the Titans increased their total to 36 rookie starts in 2022. That is the team's second-highest total through 12 games during its "Titans era" (1999 to present) behind the 42 rookie starts through a dozen games in 2005.

·      The 12 penalties enforced against the Eagles were the most by a Titans opponent since the Titans faced a Rams team that was flagged for 12 penalties at Los Angeles on Nov. 7, 2021.
