Randy Moss has been claimed by the Tennessee Titans, who lost Kenny Britt to a hamstring injury when they played the Chargers this past Sunday.

The disgruntled Moss has been the talk of the sports world for the past two days after being waived by the troubled Vikings only a few weeks after they dealt a third-round pick for the Pro Bowler. 

The Titans are headed into a bye with a record of 5-3 and are only a game back from the Colts in the AFC South. They will likely spend the bye week showing Moss the ropes, and he is certain to be heavily featured in the role left behind by Britt. 

With Moss, Chris Johnson and a healthy Vince Young, the Titans offense is definitely something to be afraid of. But can Moss keep himself in order, and if so, will the Titans now be propelled to at least the top five in the power rankings? As long as the defense continues to hold strong, all signs point to the Titans and Moss taking their show to the playoffs and potentially the Super Bowl.

Anyone that believes Moss will continue to "play when he wants to play" will be sadly mistaken when he hits the field against the Dolphins in Week 10. The Titans could run into the whiny Moss, but chances are that he gets plenty of targets and will stretch defenses for Chris Johnson.

Either way you look at it, the Titans now fall into the list of AFC Super Bowl hopefuls with the Ravens, Patriots, Colts and Steelers, and there is no telling how well they can do. One interesting thing to point out is that the Titans still have five divisional games left to play, including two against both the Colts and Texans.
