Are The Titans Legitimate AFC Threats?

The Tennessee Titans are currently sitting at the top of the AFC South with an 8-4 record this season and are two full games ahead of the Indianapolis Colts while also owning the tiebreaker. They seem to be a solid team but there are a lot of issues surrounding the program so it will be interesting to see if they should be considered to be a threat to make the Super Bowl on the AFC side.

Are you confident in the Titans this season? Well, make some money betting on some NFL lines in order to make a profit and using some NFL knowledge that you have acquired.

Henry Returning?

Running back Derrick Henry has been on Injury Reserve for a few weeks now with a foot injury that required surgery and has not played since Halloween. However, Derrick Henry is still leading the league in rushing attempts, second in rushing yards, and fourth in rushing touchdowns. There apparently is some optimism that Henry could return in early January if all goes well in Henry’s recovery and that makes the offense better.

In the four games since Derrick Henry officially went down due to injury, the Tennessee Titans have scored 19.25 points per game. Ryan Tannehill has been an average quarterback with a 51.8 QBR and now have both star wide receivers A.J. Brown and Julio Jones listed on the Injured Reserve currently and the Titans hot start has been able to lead the way.

Defense Struggling

The Tennessee Titans defense is not a strength that you would want out of a great football team. Heading into their bye week, they are allowing 290 points this season. In comparison, that is two fewer points than the Houston Texans and a singular point more than the Detroit Lions have given up.

This defense is struggling to force turnovers as they are currently at -7 in terms of their turnover ratio and are not using this defense as a strength. Tennessee is giving up 371.8 total yards of offense per game and that is a little too much in order to be a top team in the conference.

The special teams units are actually one of the better teams as kicker Randy Bullock is 18-21 kicking field goals this season and has not missed inside of 40 yards but has missed three extra points in 32 attempts. Getting some free points will help them if the offense is unable to find the end zone.


The Tennessee Titans are a good football team, but they are not in that upper echelon of franchises right now despite what their record is telling us. They have all of their eggs inside of Derrick Henry’s return at the end of the regular season and that is with everything going right in his recovery. Despite that, Henry needs to ramp up to the point he can take his dominant rushing attack every play and control the game.

The defense is struggling this season and Ryan Tannehill is an average quarterback this season. They are going to host a postseason home game against one of the AFC Wild Card teams and could potentially get the bye as the top seed, but they are not built for success with a running back with all of those rushing attempts under his belt. The Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, and Kansas City Chiefs all seem to have a little bit of an edge over them, so I do not expect a great showing from the Tennessee Titans in the playoffs and maybe win a singular playoff game at their ceiling.

The 3 Most Exciting Matchups From the 2021 Titans Schedule

The 2020 Tennessee Titans were a team with attitude, led by 2,000 yard rusher Derrick Henry, who was once again at it as one of the best in the NFL.

Tennessee got off to a 5-0 start, but then they fell victim at home to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who were in the midst of their own 11-0 run before they totally fell apart and ended the year 12-4.

The Titans are looking to take another step forward in 2021, as they will look to the NFL’s second season as a time they can make an impact in the NFL.

While there’s a number of great matchups on the Titans slate, including divisional games vs the Colts, Jaguars and Texans Browns, the team also has a number of great games, home and away to look forward to.

Here are the 3 matchups that I’m most looking forward to:

9/26 vs Indianapolis – The Colts with Carson Wentz are a totally different team, and it should be fun to see how different the team is now that Wentz is aboard. A home win over the Colts would make a huge impact for the Titans in 2021 after splitting two games in 2020.

10/24 vs Kansas City – Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs remain one of, if not the most dangerous offensives’ in the NFL in 2021. Many think that it’s just a matter of playing the games and that the Chiefs will again be playing in the Super Bowl in SoFi Stadium. This game could set a precedent for the rest of the season.

12/19 at Pittsburgh – The Steelers started 2020 at 11-0, but won just one game down the stretch to prove this team truly wasn’t for real last season. The Steelers built a big lead on the Titans before winning the game 27-24. Can Tennessee match the Steelers from a physical perspective? That’s a huge question.

Go Titans!

The Tennessee Titans 2021 Schedule Has Been Released

Two years ago the Titans came out of nowhere to take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Title game, only to fall short after having an early lead in the championship game.

Last year the team played the same Ravens team they beat the year before, this time playing them at home, and the Ravens got their revenge as they sent the Titans home for the year with a tough to swallow 20-13 loss.

The Titans have spent the offseason making their roster stronger, and it looks like they are ready for a bigger and better run in the AFC in 2021.

The club has a number of high profile prime time games on their slate, and a lot of Tennessee fans are excited to see how this team will respond in 2021.

The Titans will play at home against teams like the Bills, Cardinals, Chiefs and Dolphins, and on the road against the Steelers, Seahawks, Pats and Rams.

Report: Titans Remain One of Three Teams in the Mix for Free Agent DE J.J. Watt

The Titans remain in the mix for free agent defensive end J.J. Watt, but according to reports the former Houston Texan is not going to come cheap.

Thursday a report surfaced that Watt has an offer on the table from a team believed to be worth between $15 million and $16 million.

John Clayton of ESPN in Seattle reports that the Titans, along with the Green Bay Packers, and Buffalo Bills are the three teams that have given the most attention to Watt and they are the frontrunners for his services.

The Titans are a bit of a surprise finalist, considering Watt’s ties with the Steelers (his brothers play there) and Watt reportedly “seriously considering” the Browns over the past week.

Tennessee finished with just 19 sacks last season, which was third-fewest in the NFL, but Watt has a connection to a major part of the coaching staff.

Titans head coach Mike Vrabel was with Watt in Houston for four seasons, including his first two as linebackers coach — when Watt won his first two Defensive Player of the Year awards.

Titans defensive coordinator Shane Bowen was a defensive assistant with the Texans in 2016 and 2017, spelling more familiarity for Watt with the defensive system.

Titans GM Jon Robinson Says Team Has Spoken to Free Agent DE J.J. Watt

J.J. Watt remains the top free agent on the market that right now can sign with any team in the NFL after the Texans released him last week.

It could be a huge boost for the Titans if they can land Watt, not only giving them a player who can be impactful on their defense, but also would likely love to go back and play his old team twice a season.

Watt has missed significant playing time in three of the last five seasons he’s played in, and he’s 31 years old, so the Titans or whatever team inks him is going to have to take all that into consideration.

ESPN’s Ed Werder is reporting that about a dozen teams are showing interest in Watt, and since his release two AFC North teams, the Steelers and Browns, have been at the top of the list to ink him.

That’s not stopping Tennessee though, as GM Jon Robinson said that “we have had some contact,” when it comes to the Titans and Watt, and that there appears to be enough synergy moving forward to keep chatting.

There is a connection on the Titans coaching staff when it comes to Watt, as current Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel was Watt’s defensive coordinator back in 2017 with the Texans.

“We’ll see how it goes,” Robinson said about Watt. “See where their interest is and see if it’s an avenue we want to go down and if it’s a fit.”

Getting Watt under contract would be a huge deal for the Titans to kickoff their 2021 offseason, and could make for an interesting run for the team as they look to upgrade their defense which had some major struggles in 2020.

Here’s what to look for in Thursday’s game.

Five Worst Quarterbacks in the History of the Tennessee Titans

Over the course of their history, the Tennessee Titans have had some rather forgettable quarterbacks. Sure everyone remembers Steve McNair and even Vince Young, but there has really been some stinkers that has lined up under center since the team moved to Nashville in 1997.

Today we take a look at five of these quarterbacks, going so far as to giving you the QB that we think was the overall worst QB of all-time in Titans history.

5. Zach Mettenberger

Zachary Rich “Zach” Mettenberger was a Titans draft pick in the 6th round (pick number 178 overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft, and had a unspectacular career in Tennessee.

His debut came on September 28th, 2014, coming in a blowout relief loss of Charlie Whitehurst, and going 2-of-5 for 17 yards with an interception against the Colts.

In 2014 and 2015 he played in 14 games, starting 10, and going 0-10 in those starts. He threw for 2347 yards, 12 touchdowns and 14 picks, not awful numbers, but frankly he couldn’t escape going 0-10 as a starter, and the team parted ways with him after the 2015 season.

4. Charlie Whitehurst

The quarterback otherwise known as “Clipboard Jesus”, Whitehurst was part of the QB club for the 2014 season for the Titans, starting five games and playing in 7, going 1-4 in those four starts.

His numbers were not half bad, throwing for seven touchdowns and just two picks, but like Mettenberger his inability to make throws at key times hindered him and the team’s ability to get wins and score points.

Whitehurst’s two shining moments came on 10/5/14 against Cleveland throwing a career-high two touchdown passes against the Browns and a career-best 287 passing yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars on 12/18/14.

3. Jake Locker

Drafted in the first round (8th overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft, Locker was given plenty of chances to be the Titans QB of the future, but ended up starting just 23 games in four seasons.

In those 23 games he went 9-14, with his “best” season coming in 2013 when he went 4-3 as a starter, throwing for eight scores with four picks.

In 2012 he was named the team’s starter prior to the start of the season, and in 11 games he finished with 177 completions, 2,176 yards, ten touchdowns, and eleven interceptions. He rushed 41 times for 291 yards and a touchdown, as the team went 6-10.

Injuries hindered Locker during his NFL career, and finally on March 10th of 2015 he announced his retirement, telling the media he had lost his passion for the sport.

2. Matt Cassel

By the time the Titans got Matt Cassel, his career as even a decent NFL quarterback had passed.

He played two seasons in Tennessee, primarily as the backup to Marcus Mariota, as he appeared in just six games in two seasons, starting two, going 1-1.

Cassel threw for three scores and four picks in his time with the Titans, with his one shining moment coming in the finale of the 2016 season, going 16-of-26 for 150 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in a 24-17 win over Houston.

He was sent packing by Tennessee on March 9th of 2018.

1. Blaine Gabbert

Following stints with the Jaguars, Niners and one-year with Arizona, the Titans inked Gabbert to a two-year deal before the 2018 season.

He went 2-1 as a starter in three games, and appeared in eight games overall in one forgettable year with Tennessee.

Gabbert threw for four TD’s and four picks over his one season with the Titans, and got his only win on 9/16 against the Texans after Mariota was unable to play due to injury.

The quarterback was supposed to add stability to the QB position, but his poor play is a huge part of the reason he latest just a year in Nashville.

Titans LT Taylor Lewan Tears ACL, Done for the 2020 Season

The Titans fear left tackle Taylor Lewan tore an ACL in Sunday’s 42-36 win over the Texans, Erik Bacharach of the Tennessean reports.

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer said Lewan will have an MRI on Monday to assess the severity of the knee injury.

Lewan went down after a play in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans at Nissan Stadium, clutching his knee. He walked very slowly to the sideline before heading to the blue medical tent. The 29-year-old then went to the locker room, again moving gingerly.

Hours after Sunday’s game, left guard Rodger Saffold reacted to Lewan’s injury.

“I want everyone to know I love my brother @TaylorLewan77,” Saffold tweeted. “It’s like both of us are doing rehab. I won’t let my brother do this alone! It’s all love on this side! The best side! #RUNLEFT”

Lewan, a three-time Pro Bowler, was the Titans’ first-round pick in 2014. In July 2018, he signed a five-year, $80 million contract extension, making him the highest-paid offensive lineman in league history.
