One final look at the Tennessee Titans wild 2020 season
By Brady Akins
The Tennessee Titans were dramatic
The Tennessee Titans, typically, were the most talented team on the field on a given Sunday. And oftentimes, against teams like the Jaguars, Texans, Lions, and so on, that was the case by a lot. But it rarely ever looked that simple.
Including their playoff loss, 11 of Tennessee’s 17 games were decided by one score. Five of those 11 games were decided by a field goal or less, and two of them went to overtime. A nice, relaxing afternoon of Tennessee Titans was rarely in the cards for 2020.
Granted, Tennessee came out of those close games on top more often than not. But often they got there in frustrating, indecisive fashion. With three wins at the start of the regular season decided by a combined six points, all against teams that would finish the season with a losing record.
It hardly mattered where, when, or who. The Titans were a team that never really left you feeling one way or the other about them. Sure, they would win. But it didn’t ever really look great. Sometimes, the special teams unit would miss a few kicks, just to keep things interesting. More than that, the defense would allow a third-down conversion, or a big passing play, or a third-down conversion, or a scoring drive, or a third-down conversion — once again, just to keep things interesting.
But the Tennessee Titans were dramatic. For better or for worse.
