The Tennessee Titans could easily be 1-11 right now, instead of 4-8, if the outcome of a few plays had not been in the Titans' favor. Three of the Titans' four wins were by a total of just seven points - a one-point win and two three-point wins - so all three of those wins could have been losses if just one play in each of those games had been different.
That's not something you'd read about in The Tennessean, which recently featured a slideshow by John Glennon, focusing on five plays which might have changed the Titans' season for the better. Perhaps they'd be 6-6 and still in mathematical contention for a playoff berth.
It's my contention that one play, or an alternate play, in three of the Titans' wins, could more likely have happened differently than the likelihood of the five plays in The Tennessean. Here are the three plays, plus alternatives to consider, in three Titans wins which could have easily been losses, after the jump.
