Be careful next week. The Titans have gotten by the past two weeks largely by having opposing teams play very poorly in the passing game. That's likely due to the Titans' efforts and/or their opposing teams' inadequacies, the ratio of which is difficult to determine. Against the Titans the Patriots' passer rating was a mere 59.5, and the Ravens' passer rating was similarly a mere 63.2. Between 2010 and 2018 there were 15 of the 99 playoff games in the NFL (15%) in which a team had a passer rating between 55 and 67, i.e., in the neighborhood in which New England and Baltimore played against the Titans the past two weeks. Those 15 teams with such low passer ratings won just 3 of those 15 games, by an average margin of 1.7 points. By contrast, the teams that won the other 12 of the 15 games won by an average margin of 12.8 points, nearly two touchdowns. So there are two findings there: 1) performing as poorly as the Titans' 2019 playoff opponents have in terms of passer rating is somewhat rare in the playoffs, and 2) when teams perform that poorly in terms of passer rating in the playoffs they stand far less a chance of winning, and when they do win, they do so in a nail-biter. So anyone betting on the Titans next week has to ask themselves a couple questions in my opinion: 1) how likely are the Titans to have three consecutive games in the playoffs in which they experience something that happens somewhat rarely in the playoffs, and 2) what kind of performance are they likely to put together if they don't experience that again.
