We could be in for a low-scoring affair in San Diego on Sunday night (Sky Sports 2).
Tennessee Titans at San Diego Chargers – Sunday 21:25, Sky Sports 2
There is an intriguing contest in the second live game on Sunday night as the Tennessee Titans travel across the country to face the San Diego Chargers. These two teams still harbour hopes of making the playoffs with the Chargers record reading 3-5 and the Titans 4-4.
The Chargers played a very tough divisional game last week in Denver against the Broncos and were always in the game right to the very end but came up short in an eventual 27-19 loss. The Titans were also involved in a divisional match, defeating Jacksonville 36-22 at home to keep up the pace with the division leaders.
This will be the first Titans away game in four weeks and after playing last Thursday the extra few days rest last week will be a big help. San Diego will wonder how they have a record of 3-5; they’ve thrown numerous leads away to date and must make their home games count if they are to catch the teams in their division. The Titans will run the ball as much as they can on Sunday and that could slow down the Chargers offence. Therefore, we could be in for a lower score, so back under 47 points.
