The Tennessee Titans and Baltimore Ravens are gearing up for their 10th games of the season on Sunday afternoon. The game is set to start at 1 pm ET inside M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. The game will also be televised on CBS for those in the viewing area.
The Titans and Ravens have only met 24 times throughout the history of the two franchises. Their game on Sunday holds a lot of weight because the two teams are currently tied 12-12 all-time. This season, they’re two of the AFC’s best teams, which will make for an exciting matchup.
With both teams entering this week with 6-3 records and both in second place in their respective divisions, this game couldn’t be more important. Especially with the NFL season now well past the halfway point, these two teams need every win they can get moving forward.
Can the Titans Bounce Back?
The Titans started the year as one of the league’s hottest teams. At one point, they were 5-0 and had one of the best offenses in all of football. Since then, they’ve only won one of their past four games, including losses to the Steelers, Bengals, and Colts.
The Titans are still averaging 27.7 points per game and 385 yards per game, thanks to Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry. Their defense has regressed over the past four games and is now allowing over 26 points per game and nearly 410 yards per game.
Tannehill has been incredibly productive this season. He has 2,128 yards thus far, including 20 touchdowns and three interceptions. Coupled with Henry’s 946 yards on the ground and eight rushing touchdowns, this offense is tough to stop.
Can The Ravens Find Their Groove?
The Ravens aren’t as dominant as they were last season, but that doesn’t mean they’re not still dangerous. They were 5-1 at the time of the Titans being 5-0, but they’ve since regressed as well. The Ravens have won only one of their past three games.
Baltimore manages to score 27.1 points per game and puts up over 360 yards per game. Lamar Jackson and company need to do a better job of moving the ball, but they certainly don’t struggle to score. Their defense holds its own, allowing only 18.3 points per game and 344 yards per game.
Jackson currently has 1,762 yards through the air this season, including 14 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also has 524 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. He’ll need another strong performance from his defense to help catapult them to a victory.

I have a feeling this is going to be an extremely fun game to watch. It should be noted, however, that the Titans have several players questionable to play this week, including Jadeveon Clowney, Ben Jones, Adoree Jackson, MyCole Pruitt, Adam Humphries, Rodger Saffold III, Chris Jackson, and Larrell Murchison.
Not only that, but the Ravens also have Jimmy Smith, Calais Campbell, and Brandon Williams listed as questionable. It’ll be interesting to see how these injuries affect their play on Sunday.
Final score 31-27, Tennessee Titans.
