Titans Still Factor Into AFC Playoff Picture

Posted by Gary Glenn on November 11, 2013 – 9:59 am

jarts.20131013_3979Despite their disappointing loss to the Jaguars, the Titans remain very much alive in the AFC playoff race.

Entering last Sunday’s game, Tennessee trailed AFC South-leading Indianapolis (6-3) by two games. With the Colts’ 38-8 loss at home to St. Louis, the Titans still remain just two games back in the division with seven to play. They get their first of two chances to narrow the gap with the Colts this week on Thursday Night Football at LP Field.

While a victory Sunday would have placed the Titans in the second AFC wild card position through nine games, they now trail the current owner of that spot — the New York Jets (5-4) — by just one game.

Sunday’s loss knocked the Titans down in the AFC standings, but it did not knock them out of the playoff race. As it stands today, teams leading the hunt for the AFC’s second wild card spot include the Jets (5-4), Titans (4-5), Dolphins (4-5), Browns (4-5), Ravens (4-5) and Chargers (4-5). The Titans defeated the Jets and Chargers earlier this season.

The Titans are well within striking range – both in the division and wild card hunt — and it goes back to taking one game at a time, starting Thursday night against Indianapolis.

    100 mill in the off season and they can’t even get a .500 record. The 0-8—oops 1-8 Jags even beat the Titans, come on wtf

    After the way we palyed Jacksonville, the only thing I see the Titans factoring into is a top 5 draft pick this coming April. I could literally hear Bud Adams rolling over in his grave yesterday, sorry Bud, try to rest in peace.

    I say promote Greg Williams to head coach and fire Munchak, this team is soft and has no attitude, also we need to bring in a QB that is not injury prone. This is the 3 years that we have lost to the worst teams in the NFL

    I cant believe it!! Our team didn’t look ready to play this game. Once an 0-8 team gets a lead, they are gonna play harder than ever trying to get the first W. Our guys should’ve been made aware of this fact and maybe they were, but when the game was 0-13 maybe we should’ve called a time out and huddled the team together and regroup. I want to see Munchak in somebodys face…. YELLING and SCREAMING, not just sitting on the sideline looking lost. IT’s hard to spend my MONEY week in and out on the product!!! I hope Bud’s grandson shaKES THINGS UP!!!!!!

    My first Titans game was January 8th, 2000. Bills vs Titans. Music City Miracle. Die hard Titans fan is an understatement. Yesterday’s loss was brutal. The Titans have to win next week. No excuses. Munchak’s job is on the line. Self respect is on the line. The season is on the line. It’s time to put up or admit that maybe being a Titan isn’t the job for you. The Titans need a sense of urgency and an attitude adjustment.

    Urgency is the word if ur being nice but lets get real season is on the line to late for draft pick jst get vince to help fitzpatrick or even take control yes it ws some self emotional problems but yet it was also fisher he did not like him from the get go so now tht he is not there bring him back he knows the offense really well

    This team has to understand first pass then run. They have the wr’s and this would be beneficial to CJ and the run game. Warren Moon should be brought in to run the offense or maybe the team. Munch loved you as a player but you coach scared. Against the Jags was the worst game I have witnessed in quite some time.

    I agee and warren moon man he ws sm thing else . cj wld b effective if qb play action once n a while pump fake sm times and quit haveing him run up the middle use him outside he has fast legs not strong let shon green or battle beat up the defense come on man…..

    Give Vince Young a chance. I was so excited when we drafted him, and it was a dagger when it all began to fall apart. He has the talent. Give him the support and he’ll flourish. I still sport his jersey.

    Yes i agree vince young is who we need i hope it happens and real soon …. like asap

    Would owner Tommy Smith consider bringing back Vince Young…
    I think Bud Adams had the right idea when he drafted Vince Young…
    The problem was, Jeff Fisher didn’t buy in….
    Vince Young is available and ready to play NOW at a low cost with a good chance for high rewards.
    You should bring him in for a tryout…

    I agree Vince Young bring him back plz.
