The Titans have announced that Will Levis will be the man going forward. He has looked decent in his first two starts with 500 passing yards, four touchdown passes, and just one interception. Now, he is facing a Buccaneers pass defense that allowed the Houston Texans to score a game-winning touchdown all the way down the field with 46 seconds to go.
Tampa Bay tends to be a team that relies on winning the turnover battle. Right now, they are +8 in that category. If Levis can keep protecting the football the way he has, that can be a good sign for the Titans.

The Buccaneers’ ship is sinking considering they have lost their last four games. Strangely, QB Baker Mayfield seems to be the main guy trying to keep them afloat. He has 12 touchdown passes this year and just four interceptions.
However, their offense is not 100% right. Tampa Bay has struggled to run the ball all season. Their 78.3 rushing yards per game is near the bottom of the NFL. Considering RB Derrick Henry is their opposition this week, they could get beat badly in this category.
Both teams do a good job of protecting the football with their current quarterbacks. However, the Buccaneers’ pass defense has proven to have flaws and the Titans have a more balanced offensive attack. I expect them to come up with the road win here.
The Under may be worth keeping an eye on as well. It has hit in 12 out of 16 games combined with these two teams this season. I would not be surprised to see it hit again here.
