6. Tennessee Titans
Speaking of the Tennessee Titans, they enter the power rankings at number six, even though they finished the year as the number one seed in the AFC. This is a team that certainly has the capability of going to the Super Bowl but has plenty of questions that need to be answered.
The biggest is how will Derrick Henry look returning from a broken foot that has forced him to miss over half the regular season. When on the field, and fully healthy, he is a player that can take a game over but after not playing for two months, will he be able to have the same impact?
The other reason why the Titans are where they are is that they weren’t really challenged towards the end of the regular season. They finished 4-1 with their only loss coming against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who just got blown out by the Chiefs.
Meanwhile, their wins included blowout wins over the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins, while barely sneaking by the San Francisco 49ers and the Houston Texans. If the Titans are able to win and win convincingly over the Bengals, they would move up these power rankings.
