The Los Angeles Chargers could use a win here after losing four of their last five games. The Los Angeles Chargers have won seven of their last eight road games. Philip Rivers is completing 66.8 percent of his passes for 1,785 yards, nine touchdowns and six interceptions. Rivers has three touchdown passes in four of his last 10 games. Keenan Allen and Austin Ekeler have combined for 873 receiving yards and six touchdowns while Mike Williams has 19 receptions. The Los Angeles Chargers ground game is averaging 80.2 yards per contest, and Ekeler leads the way with 241 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 19.7 points and 321.7 yards per game. Thomas Davis leads the Los Angeles Chargers with 48 tackles, Joey Bosa has three sacks and Rayshawn Jenkins has two interceptions.
The Tennessee Titans also need a victory here after losing four of their last five games. The Tennessee Titans have split their last eight home games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 81.3 percent of his passes for 144 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception. Tannehill gets his first start in Tennessee with 16 pass attempts this season. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis have combined for 510 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Delanie Walker has 21 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 102.8 yards per contest, and Derrick Henry leads the way with 416 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 15.3 points and 321.8 yards per game. Rashaan Evans leads the Tennessee Titans with 45 tackles, Harold Landry III has four sacks and Kevin Byard has three interceptions.
The Chargers are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. AFC and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Titans are 21-50-4 ATS in their last 75 vs. AFC, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Chargers are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Tennessee and 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 meetings. The under is 5-0 in Titans last 5 games overall. The under is 5-0 in Chargers last 5 games overall.
The Los Angeles Chargers have covered eight of their last 12 games as a road underdog. The Tennessee Titans have failed to cover five of their last eight games as home favorite. The Chargers have been an absolute mess lately and losing to a third string quarterback at home last week only made things worse. The Tennessee Titans have scored a combined seven points in their last two games and it's forced a change at quarterback with Ryan Tannehill getting his first start since moving on from the Miami Dolphins. The Chargers are the more talented football team and have thrived as road dogs dating back to last year, but this team has been absolutely awful for the most part. Tannehill has a chance to revive his career and the Titans are at home. I'll lay the small chalk.
