Do the Tennessee Titans have the most versatile offense in the playoffs

Why the Tennessee Titans triplets may be the most dangerous in the NFL playoffs.

You used to hear the term a lot more, but it may be time for Tennessee Titans fans to try and revive the term “triplets” given their recent offensive success.

The chimera that is the Titans offense is one of just five teams in the NFL playoffs to have a running back and a receiver with 1,000+ yards this season.

When I figured that out, it made me question just how balanced and scary this Titans offense should be to other teams.

I mean sure, most fans know that since taking over that Tennessee has scored 30+ points per game and that they have been winning games. However, I think people may think what the offense is doing is common and that Mike Vrabel‘s team has just been behind for so long that we are all just jaded.

Looking around though, I don’t know if there is an offense left in the playoffs that has quite what the Titans do.

Sure, Baltimore’s offense is outstanding and their scheme is going to give people fits as they try to plan for the run-heavy Ravens. However, they don’t really have a receiver as reliable as A.J. Brown on their roster and have to lean heavily on their tight ends and the often injured Hollywood Brown.

Houston seems like they should be that offense on paper, but Deshaun Watson was banged up against Tampa Bay and hasn’t looked himself in several games this season. Add in a banged up Will Fuller and we may be giving that team too much credit.

Kansas City is a name that pops up a lot when you think about offense, but the run game has been inconsistent at times and just plain bad at other times. What happens when teams take away the pass?

New Orleans is amazing and Alvin Kamara turned it on the past month or so, but Drew Brees was reportedly pretty banged up after the Titans played the Saints two weeks ago. With a tough stretch of defenses to face, just how healthy is that team going to be if they make it to the playoffs if they don’t have a Mark Ingram type of running back to run out the clock?

Finally, San Francisco is more than the sum of its parts thanks to great coaching and mismatch players like Kyle Juszczyk, Deebo Samuel and George Kittle. But, the run game is a revolving door and a lot of the spark plays require Kittle doing impossible things or some sort of gadget trick play that catches the defense sleeping. I don’t know if they are going to have quite as much success in the playoffs.

I’m not saying that the Titans are destined for a Super Bowl run, but I am saying that when you look around the teams that are left, there are few defenses that really seem like they are able to beat you through the air AND on the ground if they are forced to do that.

This is something that Tennessee should be very proud of and it is something that gives them a chance in any game they play this post season.
