Fresh off an AFC Championship game appearance, expectations are high in Nashville for the 2020 season.
Something the national media forgets, and fans can’t stop thinking about is that the Tennessee Titans have finished each of the last four regular seasons with a 9-7 record.
Granted the Titans ended the 2019 NFL season with two additional wins in the playoffs, but nonetheless, fans are ready to get over that 9-7 hump. Could 2020 be the year the Titans make the regular season leap?
In my opinion, the Titans need to win the AFC South in 2020. Yes, the team has had some playoff success as a wildcard team, but getting that division crown and home playoff game would do wonders for this team and fanbase.
With the Jacksonville Jaguars in the midst of another rebuild (that can be traced back to one game vs Derrick Henry), the Colts starting over with an aging QB and the Texans trading away their best player for peanuts, the division should be ripe for the taking.
However, the NFL is unpredictable, and the game isn’t played on paper.
I believe a fifth-straight 9-7 regular season for the Titans would be a complete disappointment. Coming off an AFC Championship game appearance, an AFC South crown should be the bare minimum expectation. Today I am going to take you through 3 scenarios for how the Titans 2020 season could unfold.
First, we’ll take a look at the best-case scenario, which will assume everything goes perfectly for the team.
Next, we’ll look at the worst-case scenario. This will assume everything goes wrong, from injuries to underperformance to coaching.
Lastly, I’ll finish with the most likely scenario. How I think the season will actually end up.
Let’s get to it.
