The Tennessee Titans wanted to come into this week on a positive note, but instead, they’re signing the bye week blues. 

After a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday, the Titans dropped to 3-4 on the season. 

After winning three straight, they’ve lost three straight and the bye week couldn’t have come at a better time. The attitude inside the Titans’ locker room this week was positive, as players believe they still have time to turn things around.   

And that’s true, with nine games left in the season, they can still make a run at the playoffs. 

“I feel like anytime you have a bye week in the middle of the season it’s the best one to have and like I’ve said we haven’t played the best football but we’ve put ourselves in a good position that we can win our division and that’s great to think about in the bye week,” said safety Kevin Byard. 

Right now, these players are just anxious to have some time off.  Some will be flying home, while others have plans to stay here in Nashville, hanging out with family and friends. 

“I’m getting out of here.  You need a refresher, to kind of get away because the second half will be a grind just like the first one.  You have to take time to reflect and heal up,” added linebacker Brian Orakpo.” 

The Titans will be off the rest of this week and will have a long week to gear up for their next opponent.   

They’ll visit the Cowboys in Dallas on Monday Night Football Nov. 15.
