The Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings meet Sunday in week 3 NFL action at U.S. Bank Stadium.
The Tennessee Titans look for another win to start a season 3-0 for the first time since 2008. The Tennessee Titans have won four straight road games. Ryan Tannehill is completing 70.1 percent of his passes for 488 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions. Tannehill has two or more touchdown passes in nine straight games. Corey Davis and Jonnu Smith have combined for 257 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Adam Humphries has 11 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 126.5 yards per contest, and Derrick Henry leads the way with 200 yards on 56 carries. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 22 points and 401.5 yards per game. Kenny Vaccaro leads the Tennessee Titans with 17 tackles, Jack Crawford has one sack and Harold Landry III has one interception.
The Minnesota Vikings need a win here to avoid their first 0-3 start since the 2013 season. The Minnesota Vikings have lost three straight home games. Kirk Cousins is completing 58.8 percent of his passes for 372 yards, two touchdowns and four interceptions. Cousins has two or more touchdown passes in five of his last nine games. Adam Thielen and Bisi Johnson have combined for 221 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Justin Jefferson has five receptions. The Minnesota Vikings ground game is averaging 107 yards per contest, and Dalvin Cook leads the way with 113 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Minnesota is allowing 35.5 points and 438 yards per game. Eric Kendricks leads the Minnesota Vikings with 23 tackles, Holton Hill has one sack and Eric Wilson has one interception.
The Titans are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Vikings are 37-17-1 ATS in their last 55 home games, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games as an underdog and 5-15 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The over is 11-4 in Titans last 15 games overall. The under is 18-7 in Vikings last 25 games as an underdog. The Titans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The Tennessee Titans are off to a very strong start and Tannehill has picked up right where he left off last season when he had the Titans a game away from the Super Bowl. The Minnesota Vikings are off to a rough start to say the least, as the defense can't get off the field and Cousins has been a turnover machine through two games. With that said, it's important we don't overreact to just two games, especially this season when teams didn't have proper training camp or preseason to iron out the wrinkles. The Vikings are better than what they've shown through two games and you should get a better performance from them here with pretty much their season on the line at home.
Give me the points and the Vikings, as they were the favorites in this spot before the season began.
