Ideally, every team would just like to be in the playoffs with a first round bye. Unfortunately that’s not the Titans case. The Titans are still in the hunt for the last wild card spot, but are gonna need a little help securing it. The scenario that gets the Titans into the playoffs goes as such:
Next week the Bengals need to fall to the Ravens, while the Jets actually need to beat the Dolphins. Ideally the Chiefs would beat the Broncos, which would make the Chargers vs. Raiders game irrelevant to the Titans playoff berth, but if the Broncos win we need the Chargers to beat the Raiders.
Oh yeah, and the Titans have to beat the Texans. Originally this was looking like a really tough matchup, but after both teams have lost to the Colts, this has become a very winnable game for the Titans. Even if they don’t win, it’s been a great season for a team that went through so many changes without any actual offseason.
But the playoffs would be nice….
