The Tennessee Titans are still holding out small hopes of making the postseason with two games left. Their long uphill battle continues Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. While they are where they are thanks to a team effort, there is one player that seems to be the biggest factor in determining the Titans success: WR Kenny Britt.
In games he’s played this season, the Titans averaged 28.3 points and went 6-4 record. Without him, the Titans averaged 9.75 points and went 0-4. Britt’s seven touchdowns lead the receivers and are second on the team.
Back when the Titans picked up Randy Moss off waivers, I circled this date as a game to potentially be flexed to primetime. Instead, Moss decided he was done playing football for the season and Tennessee went into a tailspin while struggling with a revolving door at quarterback.
No matter who the signal caller is — or has been — Britt seems to be the only constant. When he plays, they win and when he doesn’t, they lose.
Obviously Romeo Crennel and the Chiefs defense will need to stop Chris Johnson, but after that it’s pretty clear where you need to focus most of the attention. You can never fully count Moss out due to the talent he brings to the table, but Britt is coming off a game with 128 yards on 6 catches showing that his explosiveness is back after a hamstring injury.
