Tennessee Titans (8-3) at New England Patriots (7-4)

Sunday, November 28, 1PM ET

It’s clear at this point that the Titans offense is struggling to keep them in games. They’re coming off against an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Texans, and now go on the road to face one of the hottest teams in the NFL.

I find it hard to imagine the Titans coming out on top against the New England Patriots. Their defense is easily one of the best in the league, and their offense hasn’t been too shabby either. Watching Ryan Tannehill throw four interceptions in Week 11, the Patriots secondary has to drooling at the potential opportunities they could see in Week 12.

And if Taylor and Co. can score 22 points against the Tennessee defense, Mac Jones should have no problem hanging at least 30 on that defense. Between his passing abilities and New England’s diverse, efficient ground game, the Patriots seem destined for a big game on both sides of the ball.

The Titans looked like a clear frontrunner in the AFC, but the injury to Derrick Henry has tanked their stock. We’ll see it fall even further in Week 12 when the Patriots deal them a whooping.

Prediction: Patriots win 34-16 | Spread: Patriots (-6)
