Our Titans vs Packers Picks & Predictions
These are two of the best teams in the league and both of them need this game for playoff positioning. The Titans are starting to look like more than just a running team. Tannehill seems to be completing more passes and finishing drives off. Running back Derrick Henry is still there for the offense too and he just loves putting up 100 plus rushing yards.
Green Bay has been putting up high numbers all season and Rodgers will enjoy that way below average Titans passing defense. The Packers defense will try to contain the Titans running game. Both of these teams have been putting up some of the highest numbers around and it will be interesting to see what the defenses can do. The Titans win 30-27. This might be a good game to bet the over/under on.
