The Titans season was a tale of two halves. The beginning of the season looked bleak with the Titans going 2-4 with Marcus Mariota. Mariota's poor play caused him to get benched for Ryan Tannehill, under whom the Titans caught fire. They finished 7-3 and made the playoffs as a wildcard.

In the regular season finale against the Jaguars, and due to a DeMarco Murray MCL tear, those owners finally got their wish. As the lead … Continue reading Stud or Dud? A Diagnosis of Derrick Henry
