    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- For five years they chased.

    [​IMG][​IMG] They finished as wild cards with the same record and they've been 10 games off the pace, but it's always been the same -- the Titans were looking up at the Indianapolis Colts.

    They will not be spraying champagne down in the locker room at LP Field, but the Titans and Nashville will take a great deal of satisfaction out of the 28-9 win over the Cleveland Browns.

    (They did announce at LP Field with 2 minutes left in the game that AFC South champion T-shirts and hats were on sale).

    The win made Tennessee AFC South champs for the first time since 2002, when Tennessee won the division's first title following the NFL's realignment. Since then, the crown has belonged to the Colts.

    If the 49ers can upset the Jets on Sunday afternoon, Tennessee will also be assured of one of the top two spots in the AFC playoffs and a first-round bye.

    But they aren't going to be running home to catch that game. Their ability to focus inward and worry about only what they can control is a big part of why the Titans sit at 12-1.

    After the Giants' loss to Philadelphia, incidentally, Tennessee also stands alone with the best record in the league.

    So we got a first round bye with the Jets loss?


    What if the Steelers lose?

    First round bye with the Jets loss, if the Steelers lose we are one win away from the #1 seed.

    If the Steelers lose, we need a win next week OR a Steelers loss next week for home field. Ties come into the equation but let's keep it simple.
