Mariota's improved play has Titans thinking playoffs at bye

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Marcus Mariota has thrown himself into the company of the NFL's best quarterbacks, both past and present, just 24 games into his career. If he keeps playing this way, the Tennessee Titans believe their second-year quarterback just might lead them to the playoffs for the first time since 2008. ''He's doing what we all thought he was going to do this year,'...

Rams execs trying hard to defend Jeff Fisher

The last time Jeff Fisher coached his team to a winning record was in 2008 with the Tennessee Titans. As Fisher coaches his way down the stretch of what looks to be his sixth-straight losing season and fifth-straight with the Rams franchise, he continues to have Rams execs doing what they can to defend him in the public light. “Everybody will want to judge Jeff through the prism...

NFL power rankings week 13 and your Tennessee Titans

Where do the Titans rank this week? The Titans escaped with a win in Chicago on Sunday after making Matt Barkley look like the second coming of Kyle Shurmur. It will be interesting to see how much that helps in the power rankings around the internet. My guess is that it won’t result in much of a bump. SB Nation: 24 (LW:25) CBS Sports: 19 (LW:19) They are one game out of first...

Bear or Bull, Week 12: Rishard Matthews

We mocked the Tennessee Titans all off-season. First, when they decided to retain Mike Mularkey as their full-time head coach, we all shook our heads. Not up and down, but side to side. Then Mularkey unveiled "exotic smashmouth" to the world. What the Mularkey??!! DeMarco Murray was signed as a free agent, but then they drafted Heisman running back Derrick Henry in the second round...

Are the Tennessee Titans Really a Playoff Contender?

No, we’re not kidding. April Fools’ Day passed by a long time ago and we aren’t much for pranks what with Santa looking on from afar. With a 5-5 mark and in second place behind the 6-3 Houston Texans in the AFC South, the Tennessee Titans are indeed a team on the rise. If you weren’t totally convinced by last Sunday’s 47-25 rout of the Green Bay Packers, how can we convince...

Derrick Henry could see bigger role in Week 9

Derrick Henry has taken a backseat to DeMarco Murray this season, but the rookie could see some extra work in Week 9. Murray is limited with a toe injury, so that means Henry could get an increased workload.
