Tennessee Titans’ unlikely season-long trend continues after six straight losses

The Tennessee Titans’ injuries continued to pile up in the second half of the season and the team suffered its sixth straight loss on Thursday night.

The Cowboys defeated the Titans 27-13, marking the seventh time Tennessee has been beaten by a team with a winning record this season.

But it’s not all bad news for the Titans, who are still alive in the AFC South title race.
