The good thing about playing the Houston Texans in their season finale is that the Texans won't have much to play for around this time.
Add desperate Titans to the equation and we don't really have to spell out this outcome for you. Tennessee will take advantage of the Texans taking this game lightly again (it happened in the 2011 season finale as well) and find themselves in some sort of tie for the final spot in the playoffs.
It's almost impossible to predict tiebreaker scenarios, so I really can't say if 9-7 is good enough for the Titans to make the playoffs. Although, the Titans surely hope so.
PREDICTION 23-14 (9-7)
This will be a successful season for the Titans -- if everything goes to plan. Finishing the season at 9-7 and in the playoff mix is very much at reach for this Titans team. It's going to be very interesting to see if they can make it this far.
