John Fox's early years showed a coach with a penchant to win in the NFLX, but as his time on the sidelines increased, the desire to win in preseason has diminished to zero. That zero is the amount of wins the Panthers have in the NFLX over the last two years, going just 3-11 in their last 14. That certainly doesn't represent numbers where you want to be laying a field goal. Jeff Fisher has always had the attitude if they’re keeping score, then he wants to win. That is what he has done, going 30-24 including 10-5 most recently in the NFLX. Under Jeff Fisher, the Titans are 15-5 ATS as a road underdog. Under John Fox, the Panthers are 2-10 ATS following a preseason straight-up loss. I like Tennessee in this one. I also like this game to go OVER the total. With Vince Young and Chris Johnson on the field, this Titans offense can score and I expect them to do just that here. They have averaged 21 points per game with starters seeing limited action. Carolina hasn't gotten much offense thus far this preseason but I think that leads to them making a concerted effort to turn that around here. When instilled as a road underdog, the Titans are 15-5 OVER in the preseason under Jeff Fisher. That includes a 9-2 OVER mark as a road dog of 3 points or less and 14-2 OVER to a total of 35.5 to 38 points.
