The Line: Tennessee Titans +7 -- Over/Under: 46.5
The New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans meet Sunday in NFL action at Nissan Stadium.
The New England Patriots look to build on their six-game winning streak to stay in the hunt for the top seed in the AFC. The New England Patriots have split their four road games this season. Tom Brady is completing 67 percent of his passes for 2,494 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Brady has two or more touchdown passes in seven of his last 11 games. James White and Rob Gronkowski have combined for 979 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Josh Gordon has 22 receptions. The New England Patriots ground game is averaging 116.1 yards per contest, and Sony Michel leads the way with 422 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, New England is allowing 22.4 points and 381.1 yards per game. Kyle Van Noy leads the New England Patriots with 53 tackles, Deatrich Wise Jr. has 3.5 sacks and Jonathan Jones has two interceptions.
The Tennessee Titans look for another big victory to get a game above a .500 record. The Tennessee Titans have won two of their three true home games this season. Marcus Mariota is completing 67 percent of his passes for 1,270 yards, five touchdowns and five interceptions. Mariota has one touchdown pass in two of his last four games. Corey Davis and Dion Lewis have combined for 710 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Tajae Sharpe has 17 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 110 yards per contest, and Lewis leads the way with 339 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 17.6 points and 333.5 yards per game. Jayon Brown leads the Tennessee Titans with 51 tackles, Jurrell Casey has 3.5 sacks and Adoree' Jackson has two interceptions.
The Patriots are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in November, 16-5 ATS in their last 21 road games and 37-16 ATS in their last 53 games overall. The Titans are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games, 18-42-4 ATS in their last 64 vs. AFC and 10-3 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Patriots are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the favorite is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.
The New England Patriots haven't lost since that beatdown against the Detriot Lions week 3, and four of their six victories since have been decided by at least seven points. The Tennessee Titans are coming off their best win of the season as touchdown underdogs to the Dallas Cowboys, and their 28 points scored were their most for a regular season game since their week 6 win last year over the Colts. The New England Patriots have covered nine of their last 12 games when a favorite of at least seven points. The Tennessee Titans have failed to cover nine of their last 12 games when an underdog of at least seven points. The question now is which Titans are we going to get? Did the Tennessee Titans play that well simply because they were coming off a bye, or is this something we can count on moving forward? I'm not sure. So, because of a lack of confidence the Titans can repeat that effort, I have to eat the touchdown chalk with the Pats..
