The Titans lost running back Derrick Henry to injury during their Halloween matchup against the Indianapolis Colts. However, they pulled out the victory in that game and were sitting pretty in a weak AFC South, after having defeated the second-best team in the conference twice.
In the Titans’ next six games they would go .500, losing three of their last four. Top wide receiver A.J. Brown has been down with injury for five weeks, including a bye, No. 2 wide receiver Julio Jones has only played in two games since Week 7, Henry isn’t expected back until the last game of the regular season at the absolute earliest, and the Titans have been dealing with injuries at other positions throughout the season.
With three games remaining they’re only one game ahead of the Colts in the AFC South after a road loss to the Steelers on Sunday, which mirrored many of their other losses in the last month of action. Turnovers destroyed the Titans. They outgained the Steelers by 150 yards, dominated on third down, and won the time of possession battle, but the Titans committed four turnovers at Heinz Field while the Steelers committed none.
The cavalry is set to return, but if the Titans can’t hold onto the football, when Henry does get his boot off, he’ll will be on the couch watching someone else play for the conference championship.
