Tennessee Titans drop to second place in AFC South standings

. Previous: 12-5th. Tennessee Titans. 2. team. 35.

The Titans got upset by Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals in the divisional round, going one-and-done for the second consecutive season. However, Ryan Tannehill has done a solid job in a career revival after arriving from the Miami Dolphins.

However, this Titans team can only go as far as Tannehill can go. Titans head coach Mike Vrabel pulled some “Vrabel magic” to win as many games as possible without Derrick Henry- and they did just that.

At the same time, Henry wasn’t the same coming back after his extended stay on the injury list, and it’s time for the Titans to get a quarterback who can throw Julio Jones more than one touchdown (that’s caught in the season finale of all games).

On top of that, the Titans are $6M over the cap, so there’s going to be more departures than additions for Tennessee. Mike Vrabel will have to work up the side of Smoky Mountains to get his team back to the divisional round.
