in the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Gillette Stadium on January 13, 2018 in Foxborough, Massachusetts. After a successful season in 2017, the Tennessee Titans off-season will be an interesting one.

Mike Vrabel a Solid Hire for the Tennessee Titans

After looking like they would retain Mike Mularkey for another season, the Tennessee Titans parted ways with their head coach shortly after their loss in the divisional round.

Tennessee Titans Must Be Aggressive To Win in Wild Card Game

The Tennessee Titans offense has been stagnant all year because of conservative play calling. To win at the Kansas City Chiefs, risks must be taken.
