After Saturday’s result, the Titans have the luxury of playing things safe today. Due to tiebreaker purposes with the Steelers next week, Tennessee’s week 17 matchup with the Texans means a lot more than their week 16 matchup does against the Saints.
If there is one thing you need to know about the #Titans playoff scenarios, it’s this... the Titans would control their own playoff destiny again with a Steelers loss to the Jets today, regardless of whether they win or lose against the Saints.— Mike Herndon (@MikeMiracles) December 22, 2019
For the Titans, it’s a late season opportunity to get running back Derrick Henry healthy, perhaps ahead of a future playoff game if things fall right. Henry won’t play against the Saints today, finally looking to get his hamstring back to full strength.
Defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons, cornerback Adoree’ Jackson and wide receiver Adam Humphries will also be no-gos today for Tennessee.
