Tennessee will look for its second consecutive Week 1 victory after defeating Cleveland a year ago. The Titans will once again turn to their defense after limiting the Broncos to 270 total yards, including 167 passing, in a Week 6 loss at Denver last October. The Titans added defensive end Jadeveon Clowney to the mix this offseason. In 13 games with the Seahawks a year ago, Clowney recorded 31 tackles, three sacks, three pass breakups, one interception, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
Inside linebacker Rashaan Evans, the team’s top tackler from 2019, also returns. He led the Titans with 139 stops, including 2.5 sacks. He also had 11 tackles for loss, 11 quarterback pressures, one pass breakup and one fumble recovery.
The 22nd overall pick in the 2018 draft played 15 games, including seven starts as a rookie. For his career, he has 23 starts and played in 31 games, recording 202 career tackles.
Denver will feature a one-two punch at running back with Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsay. Gordon rushed for 612 yards for the Los Angeles Chargers last season, while Lindsay led the Broncos with 1,011 yards on 224 carries (4.5 average) and seven touchdowns while playing in all 16 games. He became the first player since 1967 to rush for 1,000-plus yards in his first two seasons. Lindsay rushed for a touchdown in last season’s meeting against the Titans.
Another offensive weapon for Denver is wide receiver Courtland Sutton, who set career-highs in catches (72), receiving yards (1,112) and receiving touchdowns (6) in 2019. Sutton also had 18 big plays and converted 50 first downs. Sutton had 13 catches for 185 yards (92.5 per game) and a touchdown in his last two Monday Night Football games.
SportsLine’s model is leaning under on the total. In fact, it says Tannehill will pass for 200 yards and a score, while the Broncos’ rushing attack will be held to under 100 yards and one TD. It also says one side of the spread has all the value. You can only get the pick at SportsLine.
