What would be the best-case scenario for the Tennessee Titans?

The Tennessee Titans don’t have the highest expectations for the 2024 NFL season, but that gives them a chance to prove skeptics and naysayers wrong during the upcoming campaign.

With a new coach, a young quarterback and uncertainty across the board, many don’t expect much to go right for the Titans in 2024. But what if things really do go their way?

Let’s assume that Will Levis can benefit from Brian Callahan’s new offensive system and that receivers Calvin Ridley and Tyler Boyd play well enough to make him look like a player who was once considered an option for the first overall pick. The defense moves forward with the additions of L’Jarius Sneed and Chidobe Awuzie, while the offensive line corrects mistakes he made last year.

Seven of the AFC’s 16 teams make the playoffs, and there’s no reason to believe the Titans can’t get there. Tennessee is likely a 10-win team if all goes well with a fourth-place schedule and a tough division.

The Titans could pick up wins before the bye week against the Chicago Bears on the road and the New York Jets at home. If they can get to a 2-2 record before the bye week in Week 5, they’ll be in good shape.

In October, they face a tough schedule with a winnable home game against the Indianapolis Colts, but two road games against the Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions.

They can take advantage of a lighter November schedule with wins against the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Chargers and Minnesota Vikings while falling to the Houston Texans.

That means they would need to go 4-2 in their final six games (four divisional) to win 10 games. If they can split those four divisional games and beat the Washington Commanders on the road and the Cincinnati Bengals at home, that would get them into double-digit wins and a likely playoff spot.

It’s hard to see the Titans making much noise in the playoffs with the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens and Texans as the three teams most likely to compete for the AFC title, but there is potentially a fourth seed in the Divisional Round at stake, and all Tennessee has to do is win a wild card game to get there.

It will be difficult, but it is not completely ruled out.
