The Tennessee Titans (6-3) are headed to M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday to face the Baltimore Ravens (6-3), a rematch from last year’s playoffs that could monumentally shift this year’s AFC’s landscape — and both teams are well aware.
Interestingly enough, the Titans nor the Ravens are first in their division after meeting in the Divisional Round of the 2019 playoffs. Both were considered favorites to win that title in their respective divisions.
While this is a fresh-wound revenge game for the Ravens, the deep-seated contempt each organization has for the other goes way back to the days of the AFC Central.
From 1997 to 2001, it was a division that not only included the Titans (Oilers) and Ravens, but the Cincinnati Bengals, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers as well.
After suffering a 28-12 divisional round shellacking at the Titans’ hands in last season, the Ravens are looking to get back on track and inch closer to the Pittsburgh Steelers (9-0) in the standings.
The Titans have dropped three of their last four games and have to get things figured out on both sides of the ball. There is room for improvement in all facets for the Titans, and there is no better time than November to get hot.
Let’s take a look at the key matchups for Week 11.
