Unfold: Denver (-2)
As talked about earlier, the Broncos are the definition of a Jekyll-and-Hyde group. Denver received off to a raucous begin in opposition to the Chargers, scoring a landing on their opening drive and shifting the ball at will in opposition to a good Los Angeles squad.
Nonetheless, they stalled relatively rapidly as quickly because the second half started — a development that has been their downfall throughout all the season — gaining simply 113 yards on their seven drives in the course of the second half, together with three three-and-outs.
Whereas the Broncos could have a better opponent this time round in opposition to the Titans, they should keep away from the offensive inconsistencies which have plagued them all through the 2019 season.
The Titans are the definition of a “mediocre” squad. Whereas they’ve a stifling protection that ranks sixth within the NFL in factors allowed, in addition they rank 23rd within the NFL in factors per sport.
Regardless of having one of many prime younger runners within the league in Derrick Henry, Tennessee has been stifled by the restrictions of Marcus Mariota. Whereas Mariota has taken care of the ball this season, throwing zero interceptions in opposition to seven touchdowns, he has additionally been sacked 22 occasions. The 4.Four sacks allowed per sport is the third-highest within the NFL.
Regardless of Mariota’s strong 7.9 yards per try, his web yards gained per go try goes down to five.9 due to the quantity of sacks he takes.
Contemplating the Broncos didn’t have a single sack in the course of the first three weeks of the season, the Titans want to guard their quarterback if they need an opportunity at successful at Mile Excessive.
Tendencies and Prediction
- Tennessee are 2-5 ATS of their final 7 video games.
- The overall has gone UNDER in Four of Tennessee’s final 5 video games.

These are two mediocre squads which are enjoying for respect and for his or her head coaches. The Broncos have a extra balanced squad, however they’ve a serious flaw when their offense abruptly dies down within the second half.
So far as the Titans are involved, their protection is stifling they usually power turnovers — they rank sixth within the NFL in interceptions. With that stated, the run sport and the protection would be the key to victory right here.
Moreover, their new kicker — Cody Parker — should make sure that he doesn’t miss any subject targets after former Titans kicker Cairo Santos missed 4 subject targets final week within the group’s 14-7 loss to the Buffalo Payments.
Even with all of that stated, I’m giving the benefit to the Broncos as a result of they’ve a extra balanced group enjoying at residence in their very own time zone.
Decide: Broncos (-2), Underneath (40.5)
