Jeff Fisher has been around for a long, long time. That usually means a care free attitude toward the NFLX, but that has not been his mantra in these games for him. Fisher has 29 NFLX wins - more than any other current head coach. He has not taken the foot off the gas pedal in these games over time, with his record showing a 9-4 straight-up mark in the last three years. He is also 8-5 straight-up in 13 years of game-one matchups. Pete Carroll returns to the NFL and has a lot of personnel to evaluate. Couple that with the new schemes and systems, and I wouldn't expect Seattle to be at their best here, especially vs. a veteran coach with a pedigree of winning in the preseason. I like Tennessee. You can get them at +3 at even odds or +3.5 with -120 odds. If you have a choice, I recommend the latter.
