The New Orleans Saints (5-3) head to Music City for a matchup against the Tennessee Titans (7-2) in Week 10 of NFL action. The Saints are coming off a disappointing loss to the Falcons at home 27-25.
Meanwhile, the Titans still have a stronghold of the AFC South after dominating the Rams on the road 28-16. Early NFL odds opened with the Titans as field-goal home favorites and a total of 44½.
The New Orleans Saints were without their top quarterback Jameis Winston after he tore his ACL, and the offense couldn’t get going fast enough despite recording 18 points in a fourth-quarter rally. Trevor Semien did a solid job in his first start tossing two touchdowns but fumbled on a sack that led to Atlanta points.
Defensively, the Saints have been ferocious against the run allowing 34 yards on the ground last week but were picked apart in the air by Matt Ryan for 343 yards and two touchdowns. The Saints lead the league in rush defense (73.8) and are conceding just 19.4 points per game.
After a dominant upset victory over the Rams, the Titans maintain first-place in the AFC South standings. It wasn’t a great night for the offense without the support of the best running back in the league, Derrick Henry; however, the offense put together two scoring drives, with Adrian Peterson recording his 125th career touchdown.
The defense more than picked up the offense, with the pass-rush wreaking havoc all night forcing a pair of turnovers. Jeffry Simmons collected three sacks, while Kevin Byard picked off Matthew Stafford and returned it for a touchdown.
