The Titans’ postseason probability is now only 5%

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%.

 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.
