So, I have Smashville's awesome Tennessee Titans schedule wallpaper that he made on my computer's desktop and every time I boot up my computer I immediately look down at the last 6 weeks of the season. 5 of those 6 games are divisional games and those, of course, have serious impact and implications on our post season chances.
All of the other AFC South teams have only 3 of their divisional games in the last 6 weeks. Obviously two of the Texans and the Colts are games against us. It is an extremely tough way to close out the season and all 5 of those games are going to be tough, especially the 4 against Indy and Houston.
Who do you think will win the AFC South this year? Obviously, due to the schedule, the Colts won't be able to lock it up as early as they have in years past. Trying to look at this with a "best case scenario" mind set this tough close to the season could actually break in our favor. If the Jaguars and the Texans can get a pair of early season wins against the Colts it could set the Titans up to have a bit of an easier path to winning the division.
Seems like a bit of a long shot, but, trying to be optimistic about this. No matter what happens in the first 3/8ths of the season it is definitely going to take a lot of hard work and top notch performances in the homestretch of the season to secure a post-season berth. So, do you think that last 6 weeks hurts or helps us? Are there any positives to having that many divisional games so close together?
