The Tennessee Titans will also be looking to improve on their 2-1 record after a 9-6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars last time out. Marcus Mariota stepped in for an injured Blaine Gabbert and led the Titans on three scoring drives which was enough to seal the victory. Dion Lewis leads the Titans with 143 rushing yards while Derrick Henry has 139 rushing yards on a team-high 46 carries. Corey Davis leads the Titans receiving corps with 13 catches for 151 yards this season.

Philadelphia is 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record and 13-6 in their last 19 games overall while the over is 20-8 in their last 28 road games. Tennessee is 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 17-39-2 ATS in their last 58 games following a win while the over is 17-2-1 in their last 20 week 4 matchups. The home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams.
I’m the first to rag on the Eagles as I thought they should’ve started 0-2, but there’s no denying that this feels like a different team with Wentz under center. Who knows who will start for Tennessee at quarterback, and it’s either going to be a banged up less than 100% Marcus Mariota, or Blaine Gabbert who I still don’t trust as a starting QB. Either way, Went is the better option against both, and should be able to lead Philly to another win, covering the spread on the road in the process.
