4. Tampa Bay Bucs
Whatever your take on Antonio Brown is, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got what they deserved with him. Brown has been entitled and awful to everyone who has ever tried to help him and he did it again. And what’s worse, is Tampa Bay allowed him to even after they showed him some more unnecessary mercy.
When the Bucs brought in the troubled wideout, head coach Bruce Arians said if he messed up one time he would be gone. Then Brown was caught lying to the league and was suspended. Arians then backtracked and kept Brown on the roster since they needed receivers.
Then, Brown did what he does and burned bridges. He blamed the media for making a big deal out of his suspension to prove he still doesn’t get it, and then on Sunday, he went off the deep end. Angered by something on the sideline, Brown took off his jersey and left in the middle of the game. Arians said afterward he’s not with the team anymore — but he should have already been gone.
Now instead of discussing their 12th win which came in comeback fashion, we’re all only going to care about what AB did and how they move on.
3. Tennessee Titans
When Derrick Henry went down for the season, the narrative about the Tennessee Titans centered on whether or not they could still compete without him. They have done that, and then some, as they pulled off a big win on Sunday as they stopped the Miami Dolphins seven-game win streak with a 34-3 statement win.
D’Onta Foreman was unstoppable with 132 yards and a touchdown as they dominated from start to finish. Now at 11-5, the Titans also got some help when the Bengals knocked off the Chiefs as they’re now the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
One more win and the Titans not only survived without Henry but will have the road to the Super Bowl come through Nashville.
