The Titans are winners are three straight games and fighting for a shot at the NFL playoffs for a second-straight season. Today’s game at home against the Redskins is crucial for their post-season hopes.
“Everyone here has an understanding of what’s at stake and we’re all willing to do what we’ve been doing the past few weeks to get it done,” three-time Pro Bowl left tackle Taylor Lewan said, according to the AP. “I don’t think it matters who gets the credit…It’s been a cool year. We just got to keep it going.”
To reach the playoffs, the Titans need to beat Washington today and Indianapolis next week in the regular season finale and then have either Baltimore or Pittsburgh lose.
The Redskins can still make the playoffs as well, but they will likely have to win their two remaining games also. The Redskins got off to a start this year but have faced multiple injuries and a late-season slide.
Tonight’s Ravens vs. Chargers game has significant playoff implications on the line as well. Consider that Baltimore has a one-game lead for the final wild-card spot AFC and is a half-game behind Pittsburgh in the AFC North. The Chargers are tied with Kansas City for the lead in the AFC West.
The Chargers have not made the NFL postseason since 2013 but that’s already changed for this season since they have a playoff berth already clinched. Now, it’s about whether they win the division or not and get a home field advantage. Led by 15-year veteran quarterback Philip Rivers, the Chargers have excelled on offense, with deep passing and high efficiency.
“Playoff football has begun. We can’t wait around until January,” Rivers said, according to the AP.
