What to Know
The Tennessee Titans will face off against the Minnesota Vikings on the road at 1 p.m. ET Sunday at U.S. Bank Stadium. Tennessee will be strutting in after a win while the Vikings will be stumbling in from a loss.
Tennessee came out on top in a nail-biter against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, sneaking past 33-30. The team ran away with 24 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the victory. Tennessee QB Ryan Tannehill was slinging it as he passed for four TDs and 239 yards on 24 attempts. Tannehill ended up with a passer rating of 145.70.
Meanwhile, Minnesota ended up a good deal behind the Indianapolis Colts when they played last week, losing 28-11. QB Kirk Cousins had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw three interceptions with only 113 yards passing.
This next game is expected to be close, with Tennessee going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. But bettors beware: they are 0-2 against the spread when favored.
It was a hard-fought contest, but Tennessee had to settle for a 25-16 defeat against the Vikings when the teams previously met four seasons ago. Can the Titans avenge their defeat, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
