STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES -- It’s a rematch of the AFC divisional playoff game, when Derrick Henry ran for 195 yards to help Tennessee upset the No. 1 seeded Ravens. ... The Titans are tied with Seattle with three different players with at least six TDs this season. Henry has eight, TE Jonnu Smith seven and WR A.J. Brown six. ... Tennessee has the NFL’s fewest turnovers with four. The Titans lead the NFL with a plus-10 turnover differential. ... Henry, second in the NFL in rushing with 946 yards, ran for 103 yards in his last game. Henry has five 100-yard rushing games this season. He needs 54 yards rushing for his third straight 1,000-yard season, which would make him the fourth in franchise history, joining Earl Campbell, Eddie George and Chris Johnson. ... Henry has at least 18 rushing attempts in 18 consecutive games, the fifth NFL player since 1948 with such a streak. ... Titans QB Ryan Tannehill has 20 TD passes, second in franchise history by any player over the first nine games of a season to only George Blanda, who had 21 in 1960 as a Houston Oiler. Tannehill also matched Steve McNair (2003) as the only QBs in team history to have three or fewer interceptions through the first nine games of a season. ... The Titans no longer are last in the NFL on third-down defense, having moved up one spot, allowing teams to convert 53.2%. ... Baltimore’s NFL-record run of scoring at least 20 points in 31 straight games ended last week. So did its streak of forcing a turnover in 21 successive games. ... The Ravens lead the NFL in fewest points allowed per game (18.3), forced fumbles (17) and fumble recoveries (10). ... Baltimore has rushed for at least 100 yards in 32 straight games, the third-longest streak in NFL history. ... Baltimore is 22-5 at home in November under coach John Harbaugh, who took over in 2008. Baltimore is 74-26 at home under Harbaugh overall. ... Ravens punter Sam Koch has played in 233 straight games, the third-longest streak by an active player. ... Baltimore is 25-6 in the regular season with QB Lamar Jackson as the starter, but has lost two of the last three. ... In his last 17 starts, Jackson is 14-3 with 39 touchdown passes and six interceptions. ... Ravens RB Mark Ingram was limited to 5 yards on five carries last week in his return from a two-week absence with an ankle injury. ... Ravens kicker Justin Tucker is 16 for 17 on field goal tries, his only miss a 61-yarder that was wide right. His 90.9% accuracy rate on FG tries is the best in NFL history. ... Fantasy tip: Henry is the obvious choice, but Ravens TE Mark Andrews could have a big game because Jackson’s other option at TE, Nick Boyle, was lost for the season with a knee injury against the Patriots.
