The Tennessee Titans and New York Giants' playoff hopes have long been cast aside. These teams will take to the field for pride, with each getting the sense that they can come away with a rare win vs. what has been an inferior opponent this season. Tennessee has been a decent team from the line of scrimmage. Their biggest problems are turnovers, penalties, and the inability to get in favorable down and distance range on third down. That has led to the huge hidden reason why this team loses just about every week - they simply don't get to run enough plays. Tennessee has run 168 fewer plays than their opponent over the last nine weeks, or an average of 18.7 plays per game deficit. They have even had a week running off just 39 plays, ouch. The good news is they average 5.9 yards per play on the season and 6.5 per play at home. Their defense is weak allowing 5.7 per play which is a reason the Titans have allowed 28.2 points per game. The Giants are allowing 26.6 per game while posting a respectable 21.4 per game. The bottom line is that the offenses should prevail in this one as both defenses are really bad. Dating back to last season, the Titans are a perfect 7-0 OVER at home as an underdog. Their head man Ken Wisenhunt is 22-10 OVER following a double-digit loss. Take the OVER in this one.
