Tennessee Titans Fans Cautiously Optimistic for Wild Card

Joshua Huffman, FanSided poll.

A three-game losing streak isn’t enough to break the spirit of Tennessee Titans enthusiasts. Not most of them, anyway.

As of Oct. 29 at 10:30 a.m. CT, there were 153 respondents. 86 of them (56.2 percent) remain confident that this team will secure at least one of the AFC’s wild-card berths. 24 respondents (15.7 percent) were confident enough to believe that the Titans will make up their two-game deficit over the Indianapolis Colts to win the AFC South.

What if the Titans won the AFC South? They’d likely finish with a No. 4 seed behind the Kansas City Chiefs (8-0) / Denver Broncos (7-1), New England Patriots (6-2) and Cincinnati Bengals (6-2). That would set them up for an AFC Wild Card home game against the AFC West runner-up (Chiefs or Broncos). Both have interesting storylines. either Peyton Manning returning to Tennessee or a Week 5 rematch when the Chiefs defeated a Ryan Fitzpatrick-led Titans team, 26-17.

Think about this: While the Chiefs have an 8-0 record, the Titans are the only team who’ve led at any point of the fourth quarter against them. The Titans did that with their No. 2 signal-caller plus a special teams gaffe when Darius Reynaud (no longer with team) doesn’t field the punt and it hits Damian Williams‘ foot.

First thing’s first: the Titans must defeat the St. Louis Rams. Then, they must beat a winless Jacksonville Jaguars team. Then, they must take care of the Colts at LP Field.

Three wins—no excuses.
