The Tennessee Titans are in a great spot

After months of hoping that the Tennessee Titans would finish strong, the road to the Super Bowl will officially run through Nashville.

Running back Dontrell Hilliard made a great play and found a way to get a first down while staying in bounds to help ice a tough game against the Houston Texans. It was a huge sigh of relief to see the Titans hold onto that 28-24 win as the clock ran down, but as soon as the last second ticked off it was time to look at the big picture.

Last week the Titans clinched the AFC South and yesterday they clinched the AFC.

After officially winning the top seed and earning a bye, the next question is, “now what?”

Mike Vrabel talked after the game about how the team was going to enjoy a week of tough coaching as they learn up some mistakes, but the reality is that the Tennessee Titans are one win away from the AFC Championship Game, and two wins away from going to the Super Bowl.

With that in mind, let’s look at some of the reasons why clinching the one-seed was so important for the Titans and the advantages it brings.
