The Tennessee Titans spoiled the New York Jets season on Monday night in the 14-10 win. This week the Titans have a chance to prevent the Green Bay Packers from a shot at home field advantage. Now at 5-9 overall, Tennessee will look to gain some knowledge about their roster in the final two weeks of the season, as they will not be in the postseason for the fourth straight season.
It was in 2008 when they last made the playoffs, losing in the divisional round to the Ravens, 13-10.
Green Bay (10-4) sit two games back of the Falcons, who have yet to clinch home field advantage in the postseason. After struggling early in the season, Rodgers and the Packers have returned to form and have won 8-of-9 games. Their offense managed to escape the rut they were in and have dominated most of the season.
The Titans had an electrifying win Monday night, although they were just playing a spoiler role. Everyone in the franchise should be fairly disappointed with the outcome this season. While they did take their share of injuries, the talent on the team indicated a more successful season.
A few banged up players are questionable for the Titans, including Colin McCarthy and Kendall Wright. Kenny Britt and Jake Locker are listed as probable.
"[Colin's] done better, and we’ve been watching his practice, not overworking him, just rolling him into the different packages," said head coach Mike Munchak following practive Friday. "He did well yesterday and feels fine, same thing today, I assume. We’ll see how he goes through the weekend, but he should be good, I hope."
Tennessee has been riddled with injured players like McCarthy who have faced a handful of different injuries throughout the season. The coaching staff has had to juggle around the roster with all the injuries, which has also allowed them to give playing time to a variety of guys. Those guys have had a big chance and have the last two weeks to prove themselves.Tags: Colin McCarthy, Football, Green Bay Packers, NFL, Tennessee, Tennessee Titans
