It’s been a lengthy offseason for fans and players in Tennessee, who saw the Titans playoff chances go up in flames after a 7-10 campaign a year ago. At long last, the Titans will return to the gridirons of the NFL on Sept. 10, when Tennessee heads to the Crescent City to play the New Orleans Saints in a Week 1 matinee.
We at BetTennessee.com wanted to paint a clear picture of how NFL head coaches performed in the first month of the season. This information could be telling for Tennessee sports betting participants ahead of the 2023-24 NFL season.
Best NFL Coaches in September
With kickoff just days away, BetTennessee.com utilized data from Pro-Football-Reference.com to see which coaches get off to a hot start and have the best winning percentage in the month of September.
Coaches must have at least three years as a head coach to qualify for this list.
Vrabel Among NFL’s Best In September
While the Titans’ run of success came to a brief halt in 2022, the same can’t be said of head coach Mike Vrabel’s success on the field during the NFL’s opening month of the regular season. That’s because the sixth-year head coach has the sixth-best winning percentage among qualified coaches, at 11-6, in the month of September.
Vrabel ranks just behind No. 5 John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens (33-17/66%) and ahead of coaches like Mike McCarthy of the Dallas Cowboys (34-19-1/63.89%), Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid (51-29/63.75%) and Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots (60-35/63.16)/Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks (36-21/63.16%) by that metric. Sean McVay of the L.A. Rams is the NFL’s current standard-bearer when it comes to September win percentage, with a record of 16-4 (80%), while Matt LaFleur of the Green Bay Packers is No. 2 in the league, at 10-3/76.92%.
As for the 2023 season, oddsmakers at BetMGM Tennessee see Vrabel and the Titans as the No. 2 contender for the AFC South crown, at +300, ranking behind the Jacksonville Jaguars (-155). Vrabel will look to flip those odds, beginning with the Titans’ season opener against the Saints in New Orleans on Sept. 10.
