    Despite some challenging moments, we have been blessed by the football gods! Right now the AFC South is really going to come down to us or the Colts. With the Colts having a 1 game lead. With Fitz throwing the ball the way he has I totally expect us to drop a third game in a row. However, with the Colts playing Peyton and the Broncos I totally expect them to drop 2 games in a row themselves! That means coming out of our Bi-Week we will be in the same boat 1 game back with one glaring exception...Jake Locker!

    I don't know about you guys, but if he can get back to playing the way he has and our defense can continue to improve like it has I like our chances considering our schedule will start to lighten up a bit!!!

    A couple of glaring differences between the 2012 and 2013 Titan teams. THE DEFENSE and THE DEFENSE. The Jags wont beat the Titans in Nashville this season.

    Next 5:
    Titans: SF, BYE, STL, JAX, INDY
    Colts: DEN, BYE, HOU, STL, TEN

    If we surprise SF, with a little better QB play we could of beat SEA & KC. Colts lose to Denver. We likely both take care of the 2 games after the our byes... that TNF game turns into the fight for the AFC South sole #1 spot

    the SF game is huge but it is not a must-win. Plenty of football to play and there is a blueprint on how to beat the colts.

    Assuming each team wins the games they should win, here's the "tougher" games remaining:

    TN: SF, DEN, INDY x2, HOU
    IND: DEN, TN x2, CIN, HOUx2, KC

    denver il put down as an L although their pass d looks very weak currently. The two games with Indy is going to decide the division and we control our own destiny. We need to handle our sh** and play fundamental football, we will be ok.

    It is way to early to count the Texans out. I think this will be a 3 way dog fight. On paper our remaining schedule certainly is easier than the Colts, but you have to show up every week or you will lose.

    A win this weekend for us would be a huge boost going into the bye week. If we are going to be a playoff team then at some point we have to beat a playoff caliber team.

    If we can get our run game going it would make things so much easier on Fitz and our offense.Sure Fitz isn't playing that well but no running game is making it much harder because he is trying to do too much.We have got to get our run game going or we are going to have problems down the line.When Greene comes back it could bolster the run game.In my opinion i would love to have Battle and Greene get a good chunk of the carries and wear down defenses.

    After the bye playing the Rams, Jags, and Colts in consecutive weeks will be the boost we need for our run game. Currently they are the bottom 3 defenses against the run.
