Titans vs Lions Preview

About the Tennessee Titans

Last week the Titans entered the third quarter with a 10-0 lead, but they quickly showed why they are not expected to compete for the playoffs this year. Marcus Mariota who passed for 271 yards with two touchdowns ended up being the goat of the game as he looked more a like rookie when the pressure was on. He had two interceptions and a fumble that lead to a pair of defensive touchdowns. This week however, he will be facing a Lions defense that allowed nearly 400 passing yards versus the Colts. The Titans should be able to move the ball on the ground against Detroit with running backs DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry.

About the Detroit Lions

The Lions are an entertaining team. They beat the Colts 39-35 in a wild shootout. The offense looks good again with Matthew Stafford going 31 of 39 for 340 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. Best of all was that he was able to engineer a game-winning drive with less than a minute left in regulation to set up Prater for the field goal. As good as the Lions offense looked, the defense was just as bad. They gave up 35 points to the Colts and are 31st in passing yards allowed with 368.

Titans vs Lions Prediction:

The Lions offense looks like the old Lions now that they have speed at wide receiver. Stafford’s arm looks strong and the offensive line should be able to give him enough protection to go deep against the Titans. Tennessee has the makings of a good offense with the ability to run and pass the ball. Last week Mariota just cost them the game with stupid mistakes. This week he will not be playing against a top defense and should have the time to throw downfield or hit open receivers off of play action. I am looking for an old fashioned shootout in this game with the total currently at 47.5, I think that is 10 points to low. I am also making a bet on the Lions as long as it is no more than -6. I am splitting my bet with 75% on the over and 25% on the Lions-6. If it goes to -6.5 or more then all of my bet will be on the over.
