Mike Vrabel brings the AFC South leading Titans to the city of Brotherly Love to take on the NFC East leading Eagles. This will be a heavyweight fight, with Bovada.LV making Philly 5.5-point favorites. The Titans have been rewarding backers all year, so the play here is to grab the points with Tennessee. Here are three reasons.

Tennessee’s Offense Matches Up With Philly

We all know the scouting report on the Titans, and of course, the other 31 NFL teams know it – but as a general rule, they still can’t stop it. This week it will be the Eagles’ turn to deal with Derek Henry left, Derek Henry right, and then the occasional play-action splash play. This formula has generated seven wins in the first three months of the season despite a roster that is nothing special. Henry is 2nd in the league in rushing yards, 3rd in touchdowns, and the toughest guy to tackle in the 4th quarter after a day of bruising runs. The running attack has not been efficient over the last few weeks, but QB Ryan Tannehill has gotten healthy and picked up the slack. He has averaged 282 passing yards over the last three games and is developing a good chemistry with first-round pick Treylon Burks. Burks looked overmatched and unprepared early in the year but has ten catches in the last two weeks for 181 yards. He gives Tannehill the big target he needs to make defenses think twice before selling out to stop Henry. Philly will have to defend the whole field on Sunday, and I look for Tennessee to be able to sustain drives and put points on the board.

The Eagle defense has been stout this year but had some issues in November. The Commanders put up 32 points on Philly 3 weeks ago, and just last week, Green Bay scored 33. The Steelers, Texans, and Commanders all ran the ball for over 140 yards in recent games against the Eagles. This prompted the Eagles to sign veterans Ndamukong Suh and Linval Joseph off the street. So far, the run D has been a little improved, but it’s not at a level that can stop the Titan rush attack. Turnovers will be key in this battle. The Eagle Defense leads the league in takeaways, but the Titans have the 4th fewest giveaways. The Eagles have to get turnovers to cover this spread, so look for Tannehill and Henry to prioritize ball security. If they take care of the rock, things look good for Tennessee.

The Philly Offense Can Be Slowed Down

Nick Sirianni’s offense has been brilliant at times this year – especially in first halves – but has not been as efficient prior to putting up 40 points and 500 yards against the Packers. QB Jalen Hurts is a leading contender for league MVP and proved two weeks ago he can will the Eagles to win as time runs out. But the loss of Dallas Goedert has had an impact on the Eagle attack. Philly only managed 21 points in their loss to Washington, then only 17 against the Colts without Goedert. The Titan defense they will face this week is as good as either of those squads, so this will not be a walk in the park they had against the Packers last week. Hurts rushed for 157 yards in that game, but that was more than his total rushing yards in the previous four games. The Titans will not let Hurts run wild this week, so Hurts will have to pass the ball to put points on the board.

The Titans’ Defense can go toe to toe with anyone. They rank 8th in points allowed, allow less than 4 yards per rushing attempt and have the best 3rd down defense in the league. They rarely blitz, so they should be able to keep Hurts from breaking off big runs, meaning the Eagles will have to put together long drives to put points on the board. Jeffrey Simmons and David Long anchor the unit and will make Philly earn every yard and point. The Titans’ defense looks a lot like the Commander’s defense that limited the Eagles to only 260 total yards, and I look for the same struggles this week for Philly.More Picks: Get Jay’s Cleveland at Houston projected point spread winner’

Why Is The Line So High?

Last week the Eagles were laying 6.5 points to the Packers at home, and now they are laying 5½ points to the Titans. Tennessee is a much better team than Green Bay, the Eagles have short rest, so this line should be three or maybe 3.5. Tennessee has lost four games this year, but only Buffalo beat them by more than 4 points, while Philly failed to cover their three previous games to the Packers. Tennessee can control the ball and the clock, which will put extra pressure on Hurts and the Philly offense. This game will have a playoff feel to it, and it stacks up to be won by a field goal as the clock winds down.
