For a while there, it looked like the Tennessee Titans would be able to lock up yet another AFC South title.
However, injuries have put the Titans in a position to cede their division lead to the red-hot Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tennessee got strangled by the injury bug during the team’s 17-14 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
While Tannehill was able to return to the game after being carted off, the Titans took the loss harder than they might’ve if they had just lost.
The team was already missing wide receiver Treylon Burks, cornerbacks Kristian Fulton and Tre Avery, safety Amani Hooker, nose tackle Teair Tart and defensive lineman Denico Autry before the latest spray of injuries hit.
If the Titans can’t withstand this wave of bad luck and the Jaguars keep winning, the team’s game at Jacksonville on Jan. 8 might determine the fate of the AFC South. The loser might get sent home.
For Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, the team has to stay focused on a short week with a pivotal division matchup with the Houston Texans on the slate for Christmas Eve.
