Tennessee Titans at Philadelphia Eagles

Game Line: Philadelphia -11 (from WagerWeb)
Sunday NFL Analysis: The Philadelphia Eagles host the 2-8 Tennessee Titans from Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.
The Titans are coming off a heartbreaking 27-24 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday night football. The Titans lost their fourth straight when Pittsburgh scored two touchdowns in the 4th quarter to get the win. It was the Titans’ fourth straight loss, and even after an admirable performance, their season look to be going down the tubes fast.
The Eagles are coming off an embarrassing 53-20 loss at Green Bay. The Eagles had no answer for Aaron Rodgers and company, and Mark Sanchez struggled in his 2nd start as an Eagle, completing just 59% of his passes for 346 yards with 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions, including a pick six by linebacker Julius Peppers. The Eagles just couldn’t get it going offensively, and things just snowballed into one of the ugliest losses in Chip Kelly’s tenure.
So here we have a team in Tennessee that is 2-8, who is playing a road game on a short week and is coming off a tough loss. I’m sure the Eagles will be looking to make a statement after an embarrassing loss on national TV. It was a pretty embarrassing effort, considering FOX changed to the Lions-Cardinals game in the 4th quarter. One problem that Tennessee has had this season is keeping their quarterback upright, and quarterback Zach Mettenberger has had issues holding on to the ball too long and not making quick decisions. He’ll be facing the second best pass rush in the league as the Eagles have 33 sacks this season. I know that there could be a bit of a look ahead spot for Philadelphia, but I like them to bounce back in a big way against a Tennessee team that has lost their last 4 road games by an average of 16.5 points. I’m not a fan of laying double digits in the NFL, but in this case I think it’s warranted. Eagles roll on Sunday.
