AFC South: Tennessee Titans

Somehow the Tennessee Titans managed to win the No. 1 seed in the AFC in 2021. What was even more impressive was the fact that they did this despite losing Derrick Henry for much of the second half of the year.

When Henry returned, there were expectations they could make a run in the playoffs but that never happened. Instead, they were one-and-done as the Cincinnati Bengals knocked them off 19-16.

That’s been the story for the past two years now for the Titans who made it to the AFC Championship Game in 2019. But since then, they’ve gone 0-2 and the efficiency for quarterback Ryan Tannehill has declined in a huge way.

Tannehill shocked everyone when he threw five touchdowns and just one pick in their three playoff games in 2019 but has just two touchdowns and four picks since. Three of those came in their loss to the Bengals this past season.

Throw in the fact that they no longer have A.J. Brown and Julio Jones — and will be counting on Robert Woods and rookie Treylon Burks at receiver — and they’re about to ask even more out of Tannehill.

Perhaps he gets some wins in the regular season — they do play in arguably the worst division in football — but chances are any playoff appearance they have will again be short. And with Matt Ryan now in Indianapolis, they might not even be able to get past the Colts this season.

It’s probably more likely we see a quarterback controversy between Tannehill and Malik Willis than seeing this team win the No. 1 seed again.
