Washington Redskins at Tennessee Titans open thread

The 5 O’Clock Club: Can the Redskins keep their playoff hopes alive against the Titans? - Hogs Haven
The Titans are one of three AFC teams fighting for the #6 seed in the playoffs. Due to a relatively weaker AFC W-L record, the pressure is on the Titans (as it is on the Redskins) to win their last two games. A loss in either Week 16 or 17 will likely result in Tennessee players watching the AFC playoffs from the comfort of their living rooms.

Titans need another Derrick Henry fast start Saturday - Music City Miracles
This is also a good match-up for Henry with the Redskins ranking 29th in DVOA against the run. In the last month they have given up 146, 130, 227 and 172 on the ground. Some of that is because they have been banged up quite a bit, and some of that is just because they are done. Sure, they are 7-7 but they have lost 4 out of their last 5 (with the one win coming last week against the Jaguars).
