|Game||Under Win Total vs 2019 NFL Season Over|
Over / Under 8 Wins
In the age of passing and scoring in the NFL, the Tennessee Titans were one of seven teams that failed to average 20 points or more in 2018. The biggest issue for the Tennessee offense has been the health of former number two overall pick QB Marcus Mariota, who is a game below .500 overall as a starter in the NFL. The Titans signed former Miami starting QB Ryan Tannehill to provide a better option if and when Mariota misses time again.
Fourth-year RB Derrick Henry went over 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career and will be expected to carry the load for the Titans. Corey Davis, A.J. Brown, and Adam Humphries gives Tennessee a talented wide receiving corps.
The Titans ranked eighth in yards allowed and gave up just 18.9 points per game, but are expected to take a step back defensively. Tennessee lost dynamic pass rushers Brian Orakpo and Derrick Morgan in the offseason, while doing little to replace their productions. Second year OLB Harold Landry will be given every opportunity to improve upon his 4.5 sacks from a year ago.
Tennessee has plenty of talent in the back seven of their defense. All three linebackers are capable and the secondary could morph into the team’s strength. CB Adoree Jackson is coming off foot surgery and might not be up to speed to start the season.
The Titans are coming off a nine-win season, but appear on paper to be the worst team in the AFC South. The offense appears to be improved, but the health of Mariota is always cause for concern. With a difficult schedule and a defense that figures to regress, look for the Titans to find themselves in the cellar of the division standings. Final Season Prediction, Tennessee Titans Under 8 Wins.
