Shaun Phillips – LB – Tennessee Titans

It’s starting to feel like the Tennessee Titans defense that showed up in Week 1 was nothing more than mirage. Two straight weeks the Titans defense has given up 25-plus points to their opponents after giving up only 10 in Week 1.

Shaun Phillips was relatively quiet on defense with just one tackle. Phillips has had a pretty mediocre season so far. So bad that some fans forgot he was no longer with the Denver Broncos.

Through three games Phillips has four tackles and zero interception. The Titans will get a chance to redeem themselves next week against the Indianapolis Colts, on the road, but don’t count on it happening.
