Packers’ Losing Skid Snapped
The Green Bay Packers should have some confidence, that after snapping a five-game losing streak with a 31-28 home overtime win against the Dallas Cowboys last week. The
Packers, sitting at 4-6, trailed the Cowboys by two touchdowns in the final quarter, making an impressive comeback that could perhaps lead to a playoff push in the season’s second half.
If that is to happen, the Pack need to make a statement against Tennessee.
The Packers have looked nothing like they did last season, and that’s reflected in the statistics. They haven’t been nearly as lethal on offense, more of a ‘middle-of-the-pack Pack’ to date.
Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has not played at an MVP level this season. With a basically new cast of receivers, Rodgers is just 25th in quarterback rating entering this game. Lately, though, there’s been some chemistry with wide receivers Allen Lazard and rookie Christian Watson, the latter with a three-touchdown performance against the Cowboys.
A Titan-ic Primetime Win?
The Tennessee Titan, at 6-3 but 0-2 in primetime affairs, rebounded after an overtime loss against the Kansas City Chiefs by defeating the Denver Broncos, 17-10, last week. The Titans have had a very good season, 4-1 in their last five. Tennessee was arguably the hottest team in the AFC before losing at Kansas City, but with quarterback Ryan Tannehill returning and a solid game by the defense, regained its form, albeit in an ugly game.
Due to the fluctuation at quarterback, the Tennessee Titans have not been able to establish a stable passing game. Tennessee’s second-worst in passing yards per game. However, they have Derrick Henry. Henry’s second in the league in rushing, a scant eight yards behind the New York Giants’ Saquon Barkley. Tennessee will feed Henry early and often Thursday night.
The Titans have done a great job on run defense, and if they’re able to get to Rodgers, there’s no reason the\y can’t win. However, while Tennessee has stopping the opposition rushing. They’re terribly against the pass. Tennessee surrendered the second-least amount of rush yards per game, but second-most passing yards.
Titans and the Points
Nearly every game with the Titans has been close. Both teams are hurting here, and the safest option to to take the Titans +3. It will once again be a nail-biter of a game. By the way, Tennessee is priced at +1600 win the AFC, Green Bay at +3300 to take the NFC, as per NFL conference odds.
Go under with the final total, as Thursday night typically has some of the worst football.
