What do the Tennessee Titans do in a game they don’t “need” to win?
Around 2 P.M. CST, Tennessee Titans fans were probably cautiously optimistic about the team’s chances to win in Week 16 and to make Week 17 an extremely interesting matchup.
And then came the next 30 minutes.
Talk about a brutal sequence of events, in that time the Titans learned that Derrick Henry had been downgraded to “questionable” while Dalyn Dawkins had been called up from the practice squad.
Not a great sign, but it wasn’t necessarily a move that guaranteed that Derrick Henry wouldn’t play. That did come later when the Houston Texans picked off one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL for the fourth time on Saturday, sealing a win and the division title.
At that point, the Titans matchup with the Saints became immensely less important and it was a situation where you really feel like they should rest anyone who isn’t 100%.
So, with that bucket of cold water dumped on the collective fan base, let’s see what our staff thinks will happen on Sunday in a matchup that could potentially matter, but it is a long-shot.
