|Three wins to end the season could still produce a playoff berth, but their margin for error has been used up. (Kuharsky)
Welcome to the 2012 Titans. Jake Locker wasn't perfect, but he certainly made some plays for his team, much like he did in the loss to the Falcons earlier in the season. Tennessee's focus is getting a wild-card berth at this point, with the 8-5 Jets currently controlling their own destiny for the sixth seed. The playoff outlook may look bleak with the Texans clinching the AFC South yet, considering the Colts and Jags are next up on the schedule, it ain't over until that one member of Wilson Phillips sings.

|Jake Locker is a rookie, but he still has to find a way to avoid a sack on the final play of the game.
|MVP: QB Matt Hasselbeck - He brought much-needed stability to the position, and you can bet his influence has helped rookie backup Jake Locker play so well in relief.
|The Texans have already clinched the AFC South but the Titans have three very winnable games coming up -- at Colts, Jaguars and the season finale against a Houston team that may have nothing to play for. Tennessee will be a player in the playoff scenarios.
|The Titans gave it everything they had against the Saints, but fell just short after rookie backup QB Jake Locker couldn't find an open receiver in the end zone at the end of the game. While I still believe that Matt Hasselbeck, if healthy, has earned the right to start down the stretch, they may just have something special in Locker for years to come.
|Locker showed promise in rally, and then his youth on the final play.
