Fans were divided about the outcome of the Week 11 matchup between the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts. Joshua Huffman and Russell Griffin remained hopeful that Tennessee would turn their season around with a big win on national television against the Indianapolis Colts. Ben Greene, Nicholas Pitakos and most of the Titan Sized Community knew better. Their worst fears were probably reinforced when they saw Tennessee jump out to that 14-0 lead. That, and Devon Wylie running into everybody during his returns.

Let’s check out the Week 11 and overall standings from our current contestants:

Last Week (Week 11)
COLTS (Win): Ben Greene, Nicholas Pitakos, Titan Sized Community
TITANS (Loss): Russell Griffin, Joshua Huffman

Overall Leader Board
Ben Greene (Lead Columnist, 8-2)
Titan Sized Community (7-3)
Nicholas Pitakos (Staff Writer, 7-3)
Joshua Huffman (Editor, 6-4)
Russell Griffin (Contributor I, 5-5)
Trey Frisbey (Contributor I, 5-2)

That 8-2 record makes Greene look so smart. Why are pessimists always the ones who look smart? His only losses came when he picked against an 0-8 Jaguars team (something 99 percent of the population would do) and a 49ers team when he made a last-minute change after Jake Locker was announced as the starter. If Greene went with initial instincts, then he’s 9-1.

Is anyone pessimistic enough to suggest an Oakland Raiders upset? The following are the predictions and evaluations for the upcoming Titans at Raiders matchup. They include analysis from Nicholas Pitakos, Ben Greene and Russell Griffin. Who will our community vote for?
