4. Tennessee Titans (10-5)

There haven’t been many teams that have had to deal with as many injuries to key players as the Tennessee Titans this year. Without question, their most important player is Derrick Henry, who was playing at an MVP level, before suffering a foot injury in Week 8 against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Titans have also been without wide receivers A.J. Brown and Julio Jones for stretches this season as well. Remarkably, the Titans have been able to stay in contention going 3-3 since Henry’s injury. However, in that stretch there only win over a .500 team was last week against the San Francisco 49ers and also have losses to the Texans and Steelers.

The question is what this offense might look like come playoff time. There are indications that they could be getting Henry back during the playoffs or just before the playoffs. If Henry returns, combined with Brown and Jones on the field, the Titans are going to be a tough team to beat come playoff time.
