The Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans meet Sunday in NFL action at Nissan Stadium.
The Philadelphia Eagles look for their first road victory of the season to build on their decent 2-1 record. The Philadelphia Eagles have won five of their last seven road games. Carson Wentz is completing 67.6 percent of his passes for 255 yards, one touchdown and one interception. Wentz enters this game with 37 pass attempts under his belt this season. Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor have combined for 360 receiving yards and one touchdown while Dallas Goedert has eight receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 118.7 yards per contest, and Corey Clement leads the way with 112 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 18.3 points and 314.7 yards per game. Jordan Hicks leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 24 tackles, Fletcher Cox has three sacks and Rasul Douglas has one interception.
The Tennessee Titans look for their second home win of the season to create a three-game winning streak. The Tennessee Titans have won seven of their last eight home games. Marcus Mariota is completing 61.8 percent of his passes for 203 yards, zero touchdowns and two interceptions. Mariota and Blaine Gabbert have combined for one touchdown and three interceptions this season. Corey Davis and Dane Cruikshank have combined for 217 receiving yards and one touchdown while Luke Stocker has five receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 122 yards per contest, and Dion Lewis leads the way with 143 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 16.7 points and 337 yards per game. Wesley Woodyard leads the Tennessee Titans with 32 tackles, Jurrell Casey has three sacks and Kenny Vaccaro has one interception.
The Eagles are 11-4 ATS in their last 15 games on grass, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in September and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Titans are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in September and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The home team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the over is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.
The Tennessee Titans are a tough team to back until they get a healthy, productive quarterback. While the Tennessee defense has shown promise three weeks in, it's not easy to win games like last week in this league. The Titans need to score points to win, and I don't trust much of what they have going on right now. The Philadelphia Eagles have Wentz back on the field and that gives a whole new level of confidence to this squad. The Eagles defense has also been consistent when it comes to getting after the quarterback, so this feels like a tough game all around for the Titans. I'll lay the chalk with the road team.
