**

NASHVILLE, Tenn. –** The Titans are seven weeks into the 2017 season, and at the bye week.

Right now, the team is 4-3, with wins over the Jaguars, Seahawks, Colts and Browns. The Titans are tied for first place in the AFC South.

Sure, the Titans have room for improvement. Ugly losses to Houston and Miami and a less-than-stellar offensive performance in Sunday's win against the Browns serve as reminders.

But there's been plenty of good as well.

Let's take a look at the top six plays of the season so far:

**

Play:** Derrick Henry's 72-yard TD run

Opponent: Colts.

Date: October 16.

What happened: On a third-and-five play from their own 28-yard line, the Titans needed a first down to put the Colts away on Monday Night Football. Henry got the first down, and more. After tight-roping the sideline, Henry exploded into the open field and then outran everyone to the end zone as the Titans won it, 36-22.

Play: DeMarco Murray's 75-yard TD run

Opponent: Seahawks.

Date: September 24.

What happened: With the Titans leading 23-14 in the third quarter, running back DeMarco Murray took the handoff from quarterback Marcus Mariota, and then headed to his left. A patient Murray was helped by a persistent Jalston Fowler -- the Titans fullback blocked the same man twice on the same play to help spring Murray. It gave the Titans a 30-14 lead, and the team held on for a 33-27 win.

**

Play:** Ryan Succop's game-winning kick

Opponent: Browns.

Date: October 22.

What happened: This one is still fresh in the minds of Titans fans. Tied 9-9 with the Browns on Sunday, Succop trotted on the field with a chance to win it on a 47-yard field goal in overtime. Succop said he "prayed for peace," and then he delivered. When the football sailed through the uprights, the Titans had a 12-9 victory.

Play: Taywan Taylor's 53-yard touchdown catch.

Opponent: Colts.

Date: October 16.

What happened: The Indianapolis game was filled with highlight-reel plays, and Taylor's catch certainly qualifies. With the game tied at 22-22 and less than six minutes left, Mariota looked to his right and found the rookie behind the defense. He lofted a beautiful ball downfield, and Taylor hauled it in for his first career touchdown, and a 29-22 lead. The Titans never surrendered the lead.

**

Play:** Delanie Walker's one-yard touchdown run.

Opponent: Jaguars.

Date: September 17.

What happened: The Titans and Jaguars were tangled up in a slugfest in Week Two before the Titans came alive. A 17-yard touchdown run by Henry was a thing of beauty, but it was Walker's sprint to the end zone after taking a handoff from Mariota that opened things up. It gave Tennessee a 23-3 lead late in the third quarter, and the late shove he got from Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey lit a fire under Walker and his teammates.

Play: Wesley Woodyard's fourth-down stop

Opponent: Colts.

Date: October 16.

What happened: It won't show up in the scoring plays section of the Official Game Book, but Titans linebacker Wesley Woodyard's fourth quarter stop of Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett was mammoth. On a fourth-and-one from the Tennessee 13 with 2:26 left, Brissett sprinted to the first down marker in an effort to keep a potential game-tying drive alive. But Woodyard went all out to get him out of bounds short, giving the Titans the ball back for the game-clinching TD run by Henry.
