A week ago, the folks at PlayoffStatus.com calculated that the Titans’ probability of postseason play was 19% and I wrote this about it. Following yesterday’s crappy performance at Indianapolis, the probability is now only 5%.
|5. Ratbirds||10-4||7-3||vs CLE, @ CIN|
|6. Jets||8-6||6-5||vs NYG, @ MIA|
|7. Bengals||8-6||6-5||vs ARI, vs BAL|
|8. Titans||7-7||5-5||vs JAC, @ HOU|
|9. Raiders||7-7||5-5||@ KC, vs SD|
|10. Chargers||7-7||6-5||@ DET, @ OAK|
More after the jump.
The Jets’ loss to the Iggles yesterday makes the Titans loss even more disappointing. A Titans win at Indy yesterday would have them sitting in that #6 slot right now, needing only to win out to claim that spot.
If you’re one of those who thought at the beginning of the season that the Titans were a six-win team, then they’ve already exceeded your expectations. If you thought they were a 10-6 team, then yesterday’s loss was probably a bitter pill to swallow.
An optimist can say that two Titans wins, plus a loss by both the Jets and the Bengals, will put all three teams at 9-7.
I’m not particularly optimistic about the rest of the Titans’ season, especially following yesterday’s debacle, but I congratulate those of you who remain so.
