The Tennessee Titans will head on the road to face the New York Jets this Sunday in an NFL regular season matchup. The Titans won 26-22 when these teams last played in 2018.
Tennessee has now won two in a row following their 25-16 win at home against the Colts. They were able to overcome a 3-0 turnover deficit by racking up 368 yards of total offense. Derrick Henry led the way with 113 yards rushing while catching three passes for 31 yards. The defense had one of their better games, limiting the Colts offense to just 265 yards of total offense. To start the season, the Titans rank 22nd with 223.3 passing yards per game and 3rd with 159.3 rushing yards per game. They have averaged 23.7 points per game while allowing 28 to their opponents. Derrick Henry leads the NFL with 353 rushing yards and three touchdowns through three games.
The Jets are now 0-3 after an embarrassing 26-0 loss at the Denver Broncos. The offense failed to tally 200 yards and Zach Wilson threw two interceptions. The Jets offense was only on the field for 24 minutes and converted just 11 first downs on the day. Wilson was under pressure from the start, and had a few nice passes dropped. The defense did a decent job considering the amount of time they were on the field, but ultimately had no answers for Teddy Bridgewater and co. as they moved the ball with ease in three of four first half drives. To start the season, New York ranks 30th with 170 passing yards per game and 29th with 80 rushing yards. They have allowed 23.3 points per game while scoring just 6.7.
Tennessee is 6-4 ATS in their last 10 games, 7-3 on the money line, and the over is 7-3.
New York is 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games, 2-8 on the money line, and the under is 7-3.
Tennessee is the better team on paper but will be without their top two options at wide receiver. However, New York will be without both starting safeties with their third option still not fully cleared to play. On the flip side, the Jets will be returning 2020 leading receiver Jamison Crowder as well as 2020 2nd round pick Denzel Mims for the first time this season. This should give the Jets enough firepower to score some points against a weak Titans secondary. With a low total, the over is the play here.
