Bills and Raiders
While the Titans are fortunate for their division rivals to be playing tough, important games this week, the other playoff hopefuls are getting cakewalk contests.
The Buffalo Bills, who currently sit fifth in the AFC, are playing the tanking Miami Dolphins. While the Dolphins looked tragic early in the season, they are riding a two-game win streak with the latest win being over the Colts.
If the Bills are truly a playoff team, they should coast to victory over the Dolphins.
The Dolphins’ front office sure won’t be happy if they fall out of the top-five picks in the 2019 NFL Draft after shipping out all their key players for draft capital. I expect the Bills to come and win easy with Josh Allen leading the charge.
The Raiders, sitting sixth in the AFC, are coming in to play the NFL-worst Bengals. The Bengals are winless and look like they have no intention of changing their ways.
With A.J. Green still injured and Andy Dalton riding the bench, the offense has no ability to move the ball. What’s worse is a Bengals defense that is seemingly giving up easy touchdowns to whoever plays them.
Derek Carr and Josh Jacobs should control the game clock and comfortably win. However, if either of these teams slip up, then they take a major hit in their playoff push and open the door for the Titans.
Not to mention the fact that a loss is humiliating and can rip through the team’s confidence. Titans fans need to be rootind hard for the Dolphins and Bengals this week.
