So we have all spent a lot of time since last Saturday going over the various scenarios where the Titans can get in the playoffs. The two things that have to happen in every single scenario are the Titans beat the Texans and the Bengals lose to the Ravens. After that is where it gets fun.

If the Jets beat the Dolphins in an early game, the Titans just need either the Raiders or Broncos to lose.

If the Jets lose, the Titans need the Raiders and Broncos to both win. It is as easy as that.

The Jets are the team that scares me here. They still have an outside chance at making the playoffs, but I have a feeling they are going to mail it in tomorrow. I think what ends up happening is the Titans win and the Bengals lose but the Jets win lose and either the Raiders or Broncos win and the Titans are out. Obviously that is not what I hope happens, but that is what my gut is telling me will happen.

Give me your predictions in the comments.
