The Titans will be without quarterback Jake Locker who will be sitting out because of a separated shoulder. The Titans offense should not skip a beat as veteran signal caller Matt Hassleback is more than capable of running this offense.
Hassleback is familiar with the offense and has chemistry with tight end Jared Cook, making him a deadly weapon in this game. The Titans have a losing record, but they played some of the top talent in the NFL to include the Chargers, Patriots and most recently the undefeated Texans.
The Vikings are playing god football but they have had the benefit of special teams touchdowns which will not be easy to come by every week in the NFL. The Titans run defense is a solid unit that held Arian Foster, one of the league’s most explosive backs to less than 100 yards.
The Vikings are 9-19-1 ATS in their last 29 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game and 6-13-2 ATS in their last 21 games on turf. The Titans are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game and they win this game on the field.
The Titans plus the points are the NFL Lock of the Week.
