There are some of you out there who like to complain about the lack of national attention the Titans get. Personally, I would rather them stay under the radar, but it seems most people want them to be the lead story on ESPN.
This week's opening line is another sign of the lack of national respect there is. The 3-1 Titans open as a 6.5 point underdog against a 2-2 Pittsburgh team that is missing one of their best defensive players, their starting running back and playing with their starting quarterback hobbled by a bad foot.
These next 2 games are going to provide the Titans the opportunity to put themselves on the national radar. If they win at Pittsburgh and at home against Houston they will be 5-1 and in the driver's seat in the AFC South.
A split probably gets them the same amount of attention they are getting now.
If they get swept, they will disappear from the national media all together.
