Tennessee Titans Week 13 playoff standings


Where do the Tennessee Titans stand in the playoff hunt.

If you haven’t heard by now OUR Tennessee Titans stand at the top of the AFC South.

What that means is that Titans fans can breathe (ever so slightly) easier knowing that as long as they keep winning they are in control of their own destiny.

While that was always the case, you never want to have to win out to be guaranteed a playoff spot. It always helps when you have a comfortable lead or at least some wiggle room.

Last week I mapped out the teams competing for the wild card spot and it makes sense to do that again. Even if the Titans can hold the top spot in the AFC South, it is good to know who to cheer for every week and who to boo.

Here are the standings right now in relation to how far behind the Tennessee Titans they are. As I said in the last post on this, this isn’t the order they are in now in terms of competing for the wildcard spot. Instead, this list factors in what would happen if the Titans were competing for that spot.

For example, the Titans have a win over the Ravens but not the Chargers. That means that due to their tie-breaker they would be an extra .5 of a game ahead of the Ravens knowing that they would have to end the season with a better record than the Titans to take that wildcard spot.

5th seed: Jacksonville Jaguars -0.5 GB

The Titans beat the Jags earlier in the season so they have the advantage of being ahead of Jacksonville by a half of a game.

6th seed: Baltimore Ravens -1.5 GB

Another team with a head-to-head loss to the Titans. It is hard to believe that with that QB play, the Ravens actually hold a WC spot right now.

Still, this is good news for the Titans. The more teams that they have wins above in top spots, the better.

    Buffalo Bills: -1 GB

    -The Bills are strange because they don’t seem to want to win very badly. They are making strange moves at QB and trading off assets like they want to lose, but the players and coaches just keep adapting and winning.

    With two games against the New England Patriots they are probably going to have to win the rest to end up with a winning record.

    Cincinnati Bengals: -1.5 GB

    -The Bengals beat the Cleveland Browns to regain their form a little, but honestly they don’t look like a playoff team. With poor OL play and nothing to hang their hats on, they are in a compromising position with games against Pittsburgh, Detroit, Minnesota, and Baltimore left on the schedule.

    Oakland Raiders: -1.5 GB

    -The Raiders benefit from a win against the Titans to start the season, but their schedule is also really difficult. Their last four games are at Kansas City, vs Dallas, at Philadelphia, and at Chargers. 2-2 or 1-3 is very possible with that schedule.

    Los Angeles Chargers: -2 GB

    -The Chargers may be the most dangerous team on this list. While they face a cushy Browns team this week, after that they have Washington, then back to back road games against Kansas City and the Jets, closing with Oakland at home.

    If they struggle at all in those games they could be in trouble considering a 3-1 record still gives you a 9-7 season.
