The Tennessee Titans welcome in the reigning Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles today and the Titan Sized staff has predictions.
On the back of a two-game winning streak, the Tennessee Titans face their toughest test yet in the Philadelphia Eagles. While the Eagles haven’t been as lights out as they were for much of last season, they recently got QB Carson Wentz back from injury and still sport one of the stingiest defenses in the entire league. Can the Titans pull off another upset?
Matias Wodner: I would not be surprised at all to see the Titans come out with another close victory. Carson Wentz displayed some rust last week and the Eagles nearly fell to a relatively weak Indianapolis Colts team. But with Marcus Mariota likely still somewhat limited and the Titans not being able to get their run game going yet, I think the Eagles get one or two more stops than the Titans on defense and get a road victory at Nissan Stadium.
Score: Titans 17 – Eagles 20
Lleyton Steinmann: The Titans will upset the Philadelphia Eagles at home in a close game to give the Titans a 3-1 record to the start of the season. Tennessee will be at near full health, and Jack Conklin’s return will be huge for the Titans’ offense. Marcus Mariota will have a good game throwing the football with the help of Corey Davis. The Titans defense will get pressure on Carson Wentz and hold the Eagles’ offense to mainly field goals. Tennessee’s offense is still trying to find their rhythm, but they will put up enough points to get the win.
Score: Titans 20 – Eagles 16
Will Lomas: Healthy and at home, I think the Titans look like a new team. I think Tennessee takes a lead early and keeps it, but a late rally from Wentz scares everyone.
Score: Titans 24 – Eagles 21
Zach Williams: Titans face a team that is about to get their stride going again in the Philadelphia Eagles. The secondary really has to step up in the middle lanes and stop the tight ends.
Score: Titans 10 – Eagles 24
