At the moment, Tennessee controls the sixth and final AFC playoff spot. The Titans can also back into the playoffs if they lose on Sunday. If both Buffalo and the Chargers lose in Week 17, Tennessee gets the wild card berth.
Now, they have to face the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year in Rams RB Todd Gurley. The Rams running back had 77 yards rushing a three touchdowns in last week’s win over Seattle. That gives Gurley 415 yards for the season good enough for second in the NFL.
The Rams are third in the league in scoring averaging 33.0 points per game. They have scored at total stranger least 30 points in six of their eight games this season. Like Tennessee, the Dallas passing game struggles and is 29th in the NFL (183.1 yards per game).
The Eagles defense will be tasked with stopping the NFL’s leading rusher in rookie Ezekiel Elliott. The Ohio State product has three straight 100-yard games and leads the league with informative post 703 yards in six games. The Bengals are normally very stout on defense but have had their share of issues this season. The unit has recorded 25 sacks, but the desire to rush the passer has created serious running lanes to the tune of 116.1 rushing yards per game, 23rd in the NFL. Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson has improved and is healthy.
That’s good enough for first place in the AFC East, as well as the second seed currently in the AFC behind the Oakland Raiders. Tom Brady and company have been dominant even after losing Gronkowski for a few weeks to injury. Brady was banged up a bit, himself, but did manage to play in their relatively close win at the Meadowlands against the Jets in week 12. After a four game losing streak, the Packers bounced back in week 12 with a big win on the road at Philadelphia on Monday Night Football. They currently sit at 5-6 on the year which is good for third place in the NFC North behind the Lions and Vikings.

I checked my wallet, and sure enough there it was — a loss after all. As Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson headed to the sideline shaking his head, I thought I had luckily dodged similar dejection. As Watson and I both figured, the Titans went 82 yards with relative ease to win without the Texans ever getting a chance in overtime. I scoured all my mobile-app accounts and didn’t see anything on Houston there except for a small money line play either. Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson leaves the field after losing to the Tennessee Titans in overtime of an NFL football game Sunday, Oct. 18, 2020, in Nashville, Tenn.
And even though the Chiefs are missing Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who’s on the injured reserve list, they can turn to Darrell Williams to lead the rushing attack. Williams picked up 62 rushing yards and a couple of touchdowns on 21 carries against Washington. Tennessee’s defense shouldn’t be too intimidating for the Chiefs to see their offense regress in Week 7.
Doing so with a maligned offensive line and a subpar defense makes it even tougher. Coming off a loss to Pittsburgh, the Giants need a win to ensure they will enter the postseason as a wild card. New York is the only team to beat the Cowboys, claiming a win back in Week 1. The Cowboys have won 11 straight since and are clearly the NFL’s best team at the moment. The Giants have actually won the last two against Dallas and would like nothing more than to make it three straight.

It starts with a defense that is fifth in the league in yards allowed per game (321.4). Chicago’s defense is so good, the Bears offense managed just 190 yards in Sunday’s win over Buffalo yet the final score was 41-9. Chicago’s defense scored twice, once on Eddie Jackson’s 65-yard fumble return and again on a 19-yard interception return by Leonard Floyd. The Bears took advantage of four Bills’ turnovers in gaining their fifth win of the season.
