The Line: Tennessee Titans +1 -- Over/Under: 48
Down at LP Field on Sunday, November 13 in Week 10 NFL action, the Green Bay Packers will be traveling to meet the Tennessee Titans.
Green Bay comes into this game with a meandering 4-4 record, and dropped a close one to the Colts 31-26 this past Sunday. During that game, Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers went 26-of-43 for 297 yards ant three touchdowns, while Ty Montgomery was the top rusher on seven carries for 53 yards. Jordy Nelson, not surprisingly, led the Packers receiving game on seven catches for 94 yards and a TD.
On the year so far, Rodgers has bagged a 202-of-318 line for 2039 yards and 20 touchdowns for the Packers. Eddie Lacy still leads Green Bay in rushing on 71 attempts for 360 yards (and is currently injured), and Nelson is tops in receiving with 38 catches for 509 yards and seven TDs.
As for the Titans, they enter play here with a 4-5 record following a 43-35 shootout loss to the Chargers in Week 9. Tennessee QB Marcus Mariota logged a 17-of-43 mark in that one for 313 yards, three scores and two interceptions. DeMarco Murray had an okay day on the ground for Tennessee with 14 carries for 51 yards and a TD, while Kendall Wright led the receivers on two catches for 64 yards.
So far this season, Mariota is 184-of-291 for 2187 yards and 17 touchdowns with eight interceptions, and Murray leads the Titans rush with 174 attempts for 807 yards and seven scores. Delanie Walker is Tennessee’s leading receiver this year with 33 catches for 447 yards and four touchdowns.
The Packers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games following an ATS loss, and 5-0 ATS in their last five road games versus a team with a losing home record. Green Bay is also 4-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record, and 4-1 ATS in their last five road games.
Meanwhile, the Titans are 15-34-3 ATS in their last 52 home games, and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss. Tennessee is also 14-33-4 ATS in their last 51 games on grass, and 12-36-3 ATS in their last 51 games overall.
Despite the records, both of these offenses have been playing pretty well. The Packers have lost three of their last four, but have put up at least 26 points in each of their last two games. As for Tennessee, they have lost two of their last three but have put up at least 26 points in their last five games straight. This game reeks of a shootout, and though they’ve been sketchy at times this year I like the Green Bay offense to come out on top here. I’ll take the Packers to cover in a high-scoring and fun-to-watch matchup.
