The Titans have three winnable games at home in the next three weeks. After they take on the Texans this week, they have the Colts and Bengals coming to town in the next two weeks. Those are games the Titans really need to win if they are going to make a run at the division title.
Mike Munchak was asked about the importance of the next three games at home after practice yesterday:
These games are at home and that doesn’t mean that because you are playing at home you are going to win them. Starting with this one and we know this is going to be a tough one for us and like I said we are 0-1 in the division and we know how important it is. It’s early in the season so you can’t get too caught up with it if things don’t go your way, because there is a lot of football to be played. Eleven games is a lot of football and a lot can happen. Things change real quick in this league as people see week to week. We know what’s at stake with the division thing and this week and next week being two division games and it won’t take much for us to understand the importance of these games and how important it is for us to play well and what we can accomplish if we do win these games.
I am really excited to see how the Titans play coming out of the bye. A decisive win can really set the tone for the rest of the season.
