The Tennessee Titans’ 2019 season was a ride of ups and downs. The team started the season 2-4 before Mike Vrabel made a change at quarterback. He benched Marcus Mariota for offseason addition Ryan Tannehill. The team finished the season 7-3 and claimed the final AFC Wild Card spot with a 9-7 record. Their season ended in the AFC Conference Championship game, losing the eventual Super Bowl champions Kansas City Chiefs 35-24.
The Tennessee Titans’ 2019 season was one of the quieter, yet bigger stories of the year. After starting the year with a dominant 43-13 win over the highly hyped up Cleveland Browns in week one, the Titans went on to lose two straight to division rivals Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars. After a 16-0 loss to the Denver Broncos, the Titans sat at 2-4 when head coach Mike Vrabel benched Marcus Mariota for Ryan Tannehill.

It’s incredible to think that both of these teams are at this stage of the NFL playoffs given both were teams that should’ve been eliminated last week but overcame all the odds to get to this position. The Tennessee Titans have ridden Derrick Henry and their top-five defense to this point beating Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in New England then turning around and beating the number one team in all of football in the Baltimore Ravens to keep themselves alive. The Chiefs haven’t lost since Week 10, but they were close last week trailing by 24 before rallying in six minutes of game time and blitzing the Texans for 51 at home to advance and host this AFC Championship Game. This game will kick off championship weekend and will be played at 12:05 PT on CBS. Continue reading →
Championship Sunday. In my honest opinion, the best football day of the year. The Super Bowl is the most anticipated and obviously my favorite game of the year, but the fact that we get to enjoy the early part of the day, maybe even sleep in a little, and then get to watch two fantastic football games, that takes the cake for me.
After 19 weeks of football, we are down to the final four. The six seed Tennessee Titans and two seed Kansas City Chiefs will battle to represent the AFC while the one seed San Francisco 49ers and two seed Green Bay Packers will battle to represent the NFC in Super Bowl 54. Both games are rematches from the regular season with the Titans and 49ers pulling out the victory. Will the outcomes be the same Sunday? We shall see.
Wild Card weekend was full of great games, all of which ended as a one-possession game. Three of the four wild card teams won, upsetting some potential Superbowl favorites in the New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots. For those of you who lost money on Saints or Patriots futures bets, this weekend is a great opportunity to make it back.
