The Tennessee Titans and Dallas Cowboys meet Sunday in NFL action at AT&T Stadium.
The Tennessee Titans look to snap a three-game losing streak to get back to a .500 record. The Tennessee Titans have lost five of their last seven road games. Marcus Mariota is completing 66 percent of his passes for 1,030 yards, three touchdowns and five interceptions. Mariota has one touchdown pass in two of his last three games. Corey Davis and Taywan Taylor have combined for 617 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Dion Lewis has 29 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 107.9 yards per contest, and Lewis leads the way with 277 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 18.1 points and 338.7 yards per game. Jayon Brown leads the Tennessee Titans with 47 tackles, Jurrell Casey has 3.5 sacks and Adoree' Jackson has two interceptions.
The Dallas Cowboys look to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time this season to get back to a .500 record. The Dallas Cowboys have split their last 10 home games. Dak Prescott is completing 62.1 percent of his passes for 1,417 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions. Prescott has one or less touchdown passes in eight of his last 10 games. Cole Beasley and Geoff Swaim have combined for 555 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Michael Gallup has 10 receptions. The Dallas Cowboys ground game is averaging 136.9 yards per contest, and Ezekiel Elliott leads the way with 619 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Dallas is allowing 17.6 points and 313.7 yards per game. Jaylon Smith leads the Dallas Cowboys with 57 tackles, DeMarcus Lawrence has 5.5 sacks and Xavier Woods has one interception.
The Titans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 Monday games, 11-23 ATS in their last 34 road games and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a bye week. The Cowboys are 9-4-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games following a bye week and 4-9 ATS in their last 13 Monday games. The under is 13-3 in Cowboys last 16 games overall and the under is 5-1 in Titans last 6 games overall.
The Tennessee Titans are being outscored by 7.6 points during their three-game losing streak and have been held to 20 or less points in six of their first seven games. The Dallas Cowboys should win this game based on their trend of lose one, win one, and their three victories this season are coming by an average of 14 points. The Tennessee Titans have covered six of their last eight games when an underdog of at least five points. The Dallas Cowboys have split their last eight games ATS when a favorite of at least five points. All three of the Cowboys wins this season have come at home and the addition of Amari Cooper should help open up this offense quite a bit. The Titans are one of those teams that have to put together consistent football for me to trust, and the poor offense has become too much of an issue. I don't trust the Cowboys coaching staff, so laying a thick line is iffy, but it certainly beats backing the Titans and an offense that can't move the football. Give me the Cowboys by a touchdown.
