Here's How the Titans Can Clinch the AFC South by Week 12
The Tennessee Titans have been one of the best teams in football throughout the 2021 NFL season, riding an AFC-leading 8-2 record into Week 11. While a lot can happen in their remaining schedule, the Titans can actually clinch the AFC South title by Week 12.
The Titans can lock their division down if they win both of their games over the next two weeks and the Indianapolis Colts lose theirs, per NFLPlayoffScenarios.

Looking at their schedule, the Titans could realistically accomplish that goal. Tennessee faces the lowly 1-8 Houston Texans this Sunday before travelling to Gillette Stadium in Week 12 to take on the New England Patriots (6-4).
Meanwhile, the Colts have a much more difficult schedule. They're the clear underdogs against the Buffalo Bills this week and that'll likely be the case again when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 12.
Another interesting to note is that the Titans could clinch the AFC South on their Week 13 bye. That scenario can go down if Tennesee goes 2-0 over the next two weeks while Indianapolis goes 1-1 in that span and figure out a way to lose to the Texans after that.
Regardless, it's looking very likely that the Titans will win their second divisional title in as many years. FanDuel Sportsbook is heavily favoring Tennessee to win the AFC South at -5000 odds while Indianapolis sits second at a distant +1900.
