Tennessee’s matchup against the Atlanta Falcons is as close to a “must-win” as you could possibly get for a Week 4 game. Following an impressive season opening win in Cleveland, the Titans have dropped two straight losses as they hope to get back to their winning ways on Sunday.
The Titans defense is equipped to hold their own against a Falcons offense that is capable of exploding at any moment. They currently rank in the top 10 in scoring and passing defense after the first three games.
Should Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, and company start connecting on their explosive haymakers, it will be up to Marcus Mariota to snap out of his recent funk in order to help the team punch back.
I think the Titans feel the sense of urgency and make just enough plays to squeeze out a last second victory in order to head to 2-2 with the heart and soul of the team returning on Monday.
Prediction: Titans: 23 Falcons: 21
