The Tennessee Titans need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive.
Tennessee Titans (5-6) dropped their second game in a row last Monday night against the Houston Texans 34-17.
Marcus Mariota was at the top of his game completing 22 of 23 passes for 303 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions, but could barely stand upright as he was sacked by Houston six times.
Despite Mariota's strong outing, Tennessee failed to get much going offensively.
Corey Davis lead the Titans in both rushing and receiving. Davis carried the ball just once for 39 yards and caught four passes for 96 yards and one touchdown.
Although Tennessee has allowed over 30 points in back-to-back games, their defense still ranks 10th in total defense (346.5 ypg) and sixth in points allowed (20.3 ppg).
The New York Jets (3-8) dropped their fifth game in a row against the AFC East-leading New England Patriots 27-13.
Sam Darnold missed his second straight game giving veteran Josh McCown the start under center yet again.
McCown led a mediocre Jets offense, completing 26 for 45 passes for 276 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
New York's running attack was non-existent totaling less than 100 yards as a team for the fifth consecutive game finishing just 74 yards on the ground.
Jermaine Kearse was the lone Jet to find the endzone catching six passes for 66 yards and a touchdown.
Jets vs Titans Spread
The Jets are getting 8 points in this matchup.
New York's offense rank seventh worst in the NFL averaging (20.1 ppg), and to make matters worse, it is unclear who will be starting under center on Sunday.
Whether it's Darnold or McCown, I don't expect the Jets to pull out the victory
However, Tennessee's offense struggles to score points just as much ranking fourth worst in the league with (17.7 ppg) which should keep this game close.
Take Jets with the points.
Jets vs Titans Over/Under
The over/under in this matchup is set at 40.5 points.
My final score prediction: New York Jets 14, Tennessee Titans 20
Take the under in this game.
Jets vs Titans Moneyline
Think the Titans bounce back at home? You'd have to pay $425 to win a $100 profit.
Like New York pulling the uspet? Spending $35 wins $100 profit.
Where the game will be won or lost
Regardless who is the quarterback for New York, they'll have to establish the running game.
Isaiah Crowell has scored just one touchdown over the past six games, and that'll need to change against Tennessee who allowed 281 rushing yards against Houston.
For the Titans, they'll have to find a way to generate points on offense which mens Marcus Mariota will need to connect with Corey Davis often.
