The Titans have lost all four of their games since their bye week and things aren’t about to get any easier.

Prior to this month-and-a-half-long slump, the Titans were tied with the Houston Texans atop the AFC South with a promising 5-2 record.

With Houston losing their next four games, Tennessee had a golden opportunity to practically seal the division. On the contrary, they were plagued by an NFL betting lines losing streak of their own.

After losing their top wide receiver Kenny Britt in a Week 7 loss to the Chargers, Tennessee head coach Jeff Fisher decided to claim seven-time pro bowl wideout Randy Moss after he was released by the Minnesota Vikings.

Moss, however, has had a hell of a time trying to adjust to the Titans offense.

Since being acquired by the Titans, Moss has totaled just five catches for 62 yards in four games. Ironically, the longest catch “ Mr. Deep Threat” has grabbed went for just 26 yards.

To give him a bit of credit, Moss has had to adjust to playing with three different starting quarterbacks during his short time in Tennessee.

Titans quarterback Vince Young had a public dispute with Jeff Fisher in Week 11, claiming that he was “running out on his (head coach).” Young has been benched since.

In Young’s absence, Fisher decided to start rookie Rusty Smith, who was drafted in the 6th round of the 2010 NFL Draft. Smith’s Week 12 performance against Houston, was worse than terrible, as he managed to complete just 54.8 percent of his passing attempts for just 138 yards and no touchdowns. Smith threw three interceptions, giving him an atrocious 26.7 passer rating.

Inspired by Vince Young’s insubordination and Rusty Smith’s poor performance, Jeff Fisher was forced to turn to the 37-year-old Kerry Collins last weekend.

Against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Collins completed 43.8 percent of his attempts for no touchdowns and two interceptions. His quarterback rating was a measly 34.5.

Hopefully for Moss’ sake, Collins will improve from last week’s performance against Indianapolis’ 29th-ranked pass defense this NFL betting lines Thursday.

Brett’s Prediction: Indianapolis Colts: 36 Tennessee Titans: 29

Nielson Notice: Randy Moss has the opportunity to lose every game this season as a Tennessee Titan.

NFL Betting Lines: Over 46
