Can Titans Flip the Script In 2023?
Tennessee entered the 2023 NFL season looking to find its way back into the playoffs after a disappointing 7-10 season in 2022 that snapped the franchise’s three-year postseason streak. One thing Mike Vrabel’s team has done better this year is flipping the script on point differential — going from -61 in 2022 to +2 through four games. That reversal of fortune should help the Titans, as they look to join the 44 NFL teams in the last 10 years that reached the playoffs after starting the year 2-2.
That begins Sunday against Indianapolis. Tennessee betting apps have the Titans as a 1-point underdog against the 2-2 Colts, though fans hope they show the mettle they put forth in a 24-point win over the Bengals last week.
Looking forward, the Titans could be helped by their strength of schedule, with analysts from Sharp Football Analysis giving Tennessee the 13th toughest slate of games in the league. The schedule includes road games against the Colts, Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay, Jacksonville, Miami and Houston.
