  2. No way, the Titans way is to build up your hopes only to crush them as soon as you start to believe.

    Basically, we will have to go 6-2 (with the two losses being to Carolina and NO) to get to the playoffs.

    That ain't gonna happen. We really need indy and Houston and Jax to start losing.

    Gonna have a hard time catching buffalo for the top wildcard spot, as we're two back, and they hold a head to head tiebreaker.

    So we're basically fighting for either the division or the last wildcard. Likely the other wildcard spot is coming from our division anyway, although our game with the raiders will be important there.

    Yeah, going to take a miracle to make the playoffs, but I do believe in miracles.

    I think buffalo falls off despite their D.
    Unfortunately I don’t think indy or Houston will.

    I sure. But buffalo has to lose three more than we do over 8 game. That would require us to win 5 of the next 8 at a minimum. I find that pretty unlikely, given our schedule. And they have redskins, Browns, Dolphins, steelers, and jets on their remaining scheudle. We have indy, kc, car, Jax, Hou x2. I don't see us catching buffalo.

    I don’t think we pass them either.
    I’m looking at LAC to make a late season run, Cleveland to piece it together, or possibly even Jax.
    Maybe Pittsburgh.

    I’d be very shocked, although stranger things have happened, but our schedule is not very kind and despite a solid defense (when we aren’t playing Mike Evans) I’d really be truly shocked if we win more than 4 games to end up at our traditional 8-8. KC, NO, Texans, and Indy just look like better teams (offensively in particular) and are going to be difficult to beat. That’s what makes the Jax, Indy and Bills games so frustrating, they very easily could/should have been wins had our offense been even marginally reliable. Hate to be so negative but it comes with the territory as a long time Titans/Oilers fan. Would love to be proved wrong though!

    We will beat KC.
    I’ll go a step further and say we beat NO.

    If the Jax game doesn’t mean anything by then, we win. If our playoff lives are on the line, we lose. Same goes for Houston #2 except if Watson is playing, we put up a good fight. If they’re backup is playing, we get steamrolled.

    It’s all part of the Titans way.

    We have at least one more embarrassing beatdown coming to fulfill the Titans way. Saints and or kc.
