#Titans drop to 5-9 on the season. Heck of a comeback, but a familiar ending

This will undoubtedly be the story of the season.
As the Tennessee Titans look to regroup before their matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars next week, fans have already seemingly given up on the team. Few people showed up to the game at LP Field this past Sunday, although you could argue that it was a thriller.
In the final moments of the game, the Titans tied the Arizona Cardinals at 34 points a piece, forcing overtime. However, an interception by Ryan Fitzpatrick sealed the deal, putting the Cardinals in a position to score three points and nab the win.
Once again, the Titans will officially miss the playoffs, and their poor performance has resulted in three straight losses and a lack of answers from the coaching staff. Head coach Mike Munchak‘s job is unsurprisingly on the line, despite the fact that starting quarterback Jake Locker has been injured for a good chunk of the year, giving him little to work with.
So where do they go from here?
Once you’ve hit rock bottom, there’s nowhere to go but up. That being said, it’s hard to determine if the Titans have really hit their worst point this season. After all, they pulled the Cardinals into overtime, proving that they aren’t ready to roll over and die just yet.
Regardless, it should make for interesting football in the next two weeks. As Titans fans already know, every matchup has the potential to be a thriller. Now at 5-9, you just have to ask yourself if it’s worth elevating your heart rate.
