What’s that phrase? On any given Sunday, anyone can win, right? That’s why Tennessee Titans fans and the fans of each of the other 31 NFL teams keep showing up and parking themselves in front of the television. The NFL prides itself on its parity, and even though it feels like the Detroit Lions will always be a downtrodden franchise, teams can truly go from the outhouse to the penthouse in a single season thanks to free agency and the NFL Draft.
The Titans moved into the AFC South’s penthouse at the end of the 2020-2021 regular season to claim the division’s crown, but they went one and done in the postseason. A draft class that’s full of quality prospects and the acquisition of Julio Jones has several peoples’ mouths watering about the possibilities this time around. There’s just one issue.
