The Tennessee Titans are looking for a victory here to get back to a .500 record. Marcus Mariota is completing 62.9 percent of his passes for 833 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. Mariota has thrown at least two touchdowns in every game this season. Kendall Wright and Anthony Fasano have combined for 341 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Delanie Walker has 10 receptions.

The Bills are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Titans are 7-18-2 ATS in their last 27 home games and 6-19-2 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The Bills are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
Although the Titans have had an extra week to prepare for this game, I hate seeing a rookie quarterback against a Rex Ryan defense that even drives veteran quarterbacks crazy. This one could get ugly on that side of the ball. I'm just not sure Tennessee has what it takes to get the job done here.
Give me the Bills and the small chalk.
