Tennessee Titans NFL Betting

The Tennessee Titans have picked up right where they left off from last season. Tennessee is 2-0, and the Titans have now won 9 of their last 12 regular season games. It’s starting to seem silly that they were underdogs to the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South at the start of the year, and they are favored to make it 3-0 this week. Minnesota made it to the NFC Divisional Round last year, but the Vikings are a team in disarray after an 0-2 start.

Tennessee Titans Week 3 Matchup

Kirk Cousins has been one of the worst quarterbacks in the league through the first two weeks of the season. He was just awful last week against the Indianapolis Colts, and he needed garbage time to put up nice stats against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1. Cousins has seemed to really miss Stefon Diggs, as this unit no longer has a burner that can take the top off the defense.

He is in the final year of his deal, and he has completed just 58.8 percent of his passes for 7.3 YPA with two touchdowns and four interceptions. Those inefficiencies in the passing game have led to struggles in the ground game too. Minnesota had just 100 total yards of offense last week against Indianapolis before their final drive, as defenses are no longer respecting Cousins’ ability to beat them with his arm.

Tennessee has given up a lot of yards, but that hasn’t resulted in a ton of points being scored on the Titans. They are 25th in the league in total defense and 12th in scoring defense, as many of those yards came with Tennessee trying to salt away the game in prevent defenses. However, the run defense has been an issue without Jurrell Casey clogging the front. Jeffery Simmons hasn’t been the run stuffer that was expected, and Jadeveon Clowney seems to be playing his way into shape.

This secondary is solid though. Kevin Byard and Kenny Vaccaro might be the best pair of safeties in the league, and the cornerbacks aren’t bad either. If Tennessee can stop Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison from getting going, Minnesota stands to be in real trouble on offense.

The Titans are one of the least innovative teams in the league on offense, but that’s not a bad thing. Tennessee wants to ride workhorse running back Derrick Henry, using him to wear down defenses while allowing Ryan Tannehill to succeed on play action. It’s been a great strategy since Tannehill replaced Mariota last season, leading the Titans to the AFC Championship Game.

Henry has more carries than any other running back in the league. He has carried the ball 56 times for 200 yards (3.6 YPC), and no other running back has more than two carries on Tennessee. That has allowed Tannehill to complete more than 70 percent of his passes with six touchdowns without an interception.

Minnesota’s defense is nowhere near what it was last season. The Vikings saw multiple talented players leave in the offseason, and they have not been able to replace them effectively. The defensive line and secondary have been particularly affected.

Tennessee Titans Week 2 Recap

The Titans nearly toyed with the Jacksonville Jaguars for too long last week. They were ahead by double digits for most of the game, but the Jaguars scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to tie the score at 30-30. Stephen Gostkowski had to come in and kick a game-winning field goal with under two minutes left on the clock, wiping away his awful Monday night performance.

Gardner Minshew II had a lot of success against this defense. He completed 30 of 45 passes for 339 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. James Robinson ran for 102 yards and a score as Tennessee allowed 6.1 YPC, but the turnovers did the Titans in.

Tannehill did have a splendid game in the victory, completing 18 of 24 passes for 239 yards and four touchdowns after a lackluster Week 1 outing.
