Denver started out the year at 2-1 with a loss to the Seahawks and wins over the Texans and 49ers. The Broncos would then hit a losing streak to the Raiders, Colts, Chargers and Jets across the next quartet of outings.
Denver was able to stop the losing streak versus the Jaguars back on October 30 in their last appearance. The Broncos trailed by three at halftime but ultimately came out on top 21-17. Quarterback Russell Wilson was 18-of-30 for 252 yards, one TD and one pick in the victory.
Over on the Tennessee side, they lost their first two games to the Giants and Bills. The Titans would then hit a winning streak, taking out the Raiders, Colts, Commanders, Colts again and Texans.
Tennessee matched up against the Chiefs in their last game. The Titans were up 17-9 going into the final quarter but ended up losing 20-17 in overtime. Quarterback Malik Willis put up 80 yards, and Derrick Henry led the rush with 115 yards and two touchdowns off 17 carries.
The Broncos are 2-5 ATS in their last seven road games and 4-12 ATS in their last 16 versus the AFC. Denver is 1-4 ATS in their last five in Week 10.
Meanwhile, the Titans are 6-0 ATS in their last six overall and 5-0 ATS in the last five after an ATS win. Tennessee is 4-0 ATS versus a team with a losing record.
PICK: I’m going to take a stab on Denver. The Broncos have had a while to think about their ugly win over the Jaguars back on October 30. Denver put up 331 total yards with 18 first downs in the victory, but also had a whopping 12 penalties and went just 2-of-11 on third-down tries. Ideally, the team will be ready to go here after the extra week of preparation.
As for Tennessee, they had a rough offensive outing against Kansas City with just 57 passing yards, nine first downs and 1-of-11 on third downs. The Titans will surely improve those numbers here but I think Denver can keep it close enough to cover.
