NFL Power Rankings Week 9: Ryan Tannehill leads Titans to win streak
By Will Lomas
10. Indianapolis Colts
Recap: If the Denver Broncos had a coaching staff that wasn’t scared to lose, the Colts would be 4-3 right now and just slightly ahead of the Jags, Titans and Texans by way of tie breakers or early season success.
Credit where credit is due, despite Jacoby Brissett being a complete non factor in the game, the normal standouts on defense made their plays. Darius Leonard and Justin Houston looked good against a bad Denver Broncos offense and at the end of the day, all that matters is the L or the W.
Outlook: Instead of a close grouping with the rest of the division, they sit at an unconvincing 5-2 with the worst point differential in the AFC South. The next five games for the Titans feature challenges against the three AFC South teams as well as a wily Steelers team.If this team is more pretender than contender like they appear to be, then that stretch could get pretty dicey.
