17. Tennessee Titans

When looking at how tough the AFC West is shaping out to be, the Tennessee Titans are going to need every win possible over the next few months to avoid missing out on the playoffs like last season, which is why Sunday’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts was so frustrating.

Just when it seemed like the Titans were going to hang on for their second win of the season to sit on top of the division all alone, Tennessee allowed Indianapolis to work their way back into the game on Sunday, resulting in a 19-17 loss.

After an impressive 30-point win on the road in Week 1 over the Cleveland Browns, the Titans were looking to make another strong statement over how they deserve to be viewed as a top team in the AFC.

This may very well still end up being the case since it’s only been two weeks, but when looking at the previous history between these AFC South rivals when Andrew Luck was part of the picture, a win by the Titans over the Colts would have been huge.

Once again, Marcus Mariota seems to be receiving most of the criticism for the Titans failing to do more on offense, and even though the quarterback’s numbers weren’t terrible, Tennessee still needs more.
