Tennessee @ Philadelphia
Current records: Tennessee 7-4; Philadelphia 10-1
What there is to know
The Tennessee Titans hit the road to take on the Philadelphia Eagles at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Both teams allowed few runs on average (Tennessee 18.64, Philadelphia 19.64), so any runs scored will be well-earned.
It was all tied 10-10 at halftime, but the Titans weren’t quite tied with the Cincinnati Bengals in the second half when they met last Sunday. Tennessee didn’t finish too far behind, but the team still lost 20-16 to Cincinnati.
Most of the team’s points came from the special teams, which contributed ten. K Caleb Shudak delivered a perfect 3-on-3 match.
Meanwhile, Philadelphia picked up a 40-33 win over the Green Bay Packers last Sunday. It was another big night for Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, who had two touchdowns and 153 yards on 28 attempts in addition to picking up 157 rushing yards. It was the first time Hurts had rushed for more than 100 yards all year.
The Titans are expected to lose this next by 5. However, those who like to bet on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 3-1 ATS when they are expected to lose.
Tennessee is now 7-4 while Philadelphia is 10-1. A pair of stats to keep in mind while watching: Tennessee ranks first in the league in rushing touchdowns allowed, with just three on the season. But Philadelphia enters the game with 21 rushing touchdowns, which is the best in the NFL. We’ll see if the Tennessee defense can keep the Eagles running backs out of the end zone.
