Among the different team competing in the NFL, the pre-season hype always surrounds Tennessee Titans. The team previously a part of AFC Central (now AFC north) has a solid team. Compared to the teams that have high odds to win the AFC North, Tennessee Titans have the best roster in the AFC South that enhances their chances of a win. The professional football team based in Nashville was previously known as Houston Oilers. It started to play in 1960 and joined the AFL in 1970. The Tennessee Titans were earlier known as Tennessee Oilers and adopted the new name in 1999. It was a part of AFC Central from 1970 to 2001. It is now a part of AFC south (from 2002) with the two league championships to its credit.
The Winning Streak
It is an under-rated team with few tricks up their sleeve as they have the potential to pull off wins unexpectedly. It is evident from the previous performances that Tennessee Titans is a team that can steal unlikely victory in any divisional playoffs. The team has undergone three name changes from its inception in 1960. It was called Houston Oilers from 1960 to1996 and Tennessee Oilers from 1997 to 1998. It has successfully appeared in 22 playoffs while winning 9 divisional championships and one conference championship. Out of the nine divisional championships, it has four AFL east championship (1960, 1961, 1962, and 1967). It has three AFL central Championships (1991, 1993, 2000), and two AFL South championships (2002, 2008).
Predicting the Winning Probability of Current Season
The Tennessee Titans have made big moves to keep the ball rolling in the current season by signing top cornerbacks Malcolm Butler and Dion Lewis the running back. Though it has received criticisms and teasing from the fans (who refer the moves as Tennessee Patriots), the Titans are leaving no stones unturned for a big win. With the season paired down to just six NFL teams, the Tennessee Patriots have secured their place with a wild card entry. The team’s new coach Michael Vrabel has the experience and strategies that can help the team gain upper hand against the teams with highest odds to win the AFC North.
Players with Magical Touch to Change the Game
The Tennessee Titans with back-to-back season wins have the potential to give a good fight. With the overhaul of the coaching staff and new team coach, the Titans are now in an interesting situation that gives them an edge to make a serious run in 2018. The team is red hot with the inclusion of Marcus Mariota (quarterback) and DeMarco Murray (running back). The defense is secure with Jurrell Casey who is a nightmare to the opposition. The right mix of players is offering the much-needed consistency to the team.
The Titans can make the game interesting if they can overcome the other teams in the league. If the star players in the team can perform consistently by overcoming their injuries, then the Titans can pull off a win. With the decent defense, Titans just need to balance the game with the offense that can help them taste victory.
