The Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans meet Sunday in NFL action at the Nissan Stadium.
The Baltimore Ravens look for their third road win of the season to get a game above a .500 record. The Baltimore Ravens have lost eight of their last 10 road games. Joe Flacco is completing 64 percent of his passes for 1,290 yards, six touchdowns and eight interceptions. Flacco has one or less touchdown passes in six straight games. Mike Wallace and Benjamin Watson have combined for 468 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Jeremy Maclin has 19 receptions. The Baltimore Ravens ground game is averaging 126.9 yards per contest, and Alex Collins leads the way with 478 yards on 80 carries. Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 18.5 points and 317.3 yards per game. C.J. Mosley leads the Baltimore Ravens with 68 tackles, Terrell Suggs has 4.5 sacks and Brandon Carr has three interceptions.
The Tennessee Titans hope to stay hot after winning four of their last six games and keep pace in the AFC South. The Tennessee Titans have won six of their last seven home games. Marcus Mariota is completing 62.5 percent of his passes for 1,301 yards, four touchdowns and four interceptions. Mariota has one touchdown pass and three interceptions in his last three games. Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker have combined for 717 receiving yards and one touchdown Eric Decker has 23 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 124.6 yards per contest, and DeMarco Murray leads the way with 372 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 24.7 points and 329.4 yards per game. Wesley Woodyard leads the Tennessee Titans with 57 tackles, Derrick Morgan has 4.5 sacks and Kevin Byard has four interceptions.
The Ravens are 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs. AFC. The Titans are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week and 17-40-3 ATS in their last 60 games overall. The Ravens are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings in Tennessee, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings and the under is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings.
The Baltimore Ravens are coming off their best game of the season in a beatdown over the Miami Dolphins, and there's a chance they get even more players back with extended rest from playing last Thursday. However, Flacco remains questionable with a concussion, and I'm not about to back a team that's starting Ryan Mallett. The Titans have put together back-to-back wins, have a healthy Mariota and have had an extra week to prepare for this contest. The Titans defense has allowed 22 or less points in four of their last six games, and before last Thursday, the Ravens couldn't move the ball the length of a coffee table. The Titans are also extremely tough at home, which includes covers in six of their last seven. I'll take Tennessee by a touchdown.
