Atlanta Falcons Key Stats
The Atlanta Falcons average 16.4 points per game, ranking 29th in the league in scoring. Atlanta ranks 17th in passing offense and eighth in rushing offense. They allow 19.0 points per game, which ranks ninth in the league. The Falcons rank seventh in passing defense and eighth in rushing defense. They are 13th in total offense and third in total defense.
The Falcons have a lengthy injury report as they have already placed Troy Anderson, Matt Hennessy, Parker Hesse, and Adetokunbo Ogundeji, among others, on injured reserve. Meanwhile, running back Bijan Robinson is questionable to suit up after leaving Atlanta’s 16-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after just 11 snaps and one touch. Robinson reportedly left the game after suffering from headaches and returned to practice on Wednesday.
Tennessee Titans Key Stats
The Tennessee Titans average 17.3 points per game, ranking 25th in the league in scoring. Tennessee ranks 30th in passing offense and 19th in rushing offense. They allow 19.5 points per game, ranking 11th in the league. The Titans rank 22nd in passing defense and 14th in rushing defense. They are 28th in total offense and 17th in total defense.
The Titans also have a lengthy injury report, as Caleb Farley and Hassan Haskins, among others, have already been placed on injured reserve. Starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill appears unlikely to suit up after suffering a high ankle sprain in Tennessee’s 24-16 Week 6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Despite the bye week, it does not appear as if Tannehill is ready to return. Treylon Burks and Luke Gifford are both questionable to return after missing the past three games. Elijah Molden, who has missed two of the past three games, is also questionable to return. Teair Tart, who has missed the past two games, is questionable to return.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Tennessee Titans Betting Prediction
The Tennessee Titans will likely be without starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. His absence will give them a chance to evaluate both Will Levis and Malik Willis, according to Ian Rapoport, who reported that Levis will start, and both will get the opportunity to play. While the Titans could get a glimpse at their quarterback of the future, both players are unlikely to shine against the stingy Atlanta Falcons defense.
The Falcons have done a great job of preventing teams from moving the ball this season. Look for that to continue against a struggling Titans offense as Atlanta wins by at least three points.
