I will do a recap of the game here in a little bit, but the more pressing question seems to be what theneed to get in the playoffs. Obviously the first thing that has to happen is the Titans have to beat the in Houston. If the Titans lose they are out regardless.
Assuming thelose to the today, the Titans will need the to lose to the Ravens and the to beat the Dolphins in Week 17. They will also need the Chargers to beat the . That way the are the AFC West Champion and the Titans are the sixth seed.
If the Raiders beat the Chargers, the Titans need theto beat the Broncos. Then the Raiders would be the AFC West Champions.
All of that is if the Chargers lose today. If they win today the Chiefs have to beat the Broncos for the Titans to get in. Clear as mud?
Of course none of this would matter if the Titans had just beaten thelast week. They would just need to beat the Texans to get in.
