This week the NFL will see a team that has been up and down take on a team that is not living up to their expectations. The Green Bay Packers were supposed to be one of the best teams in the NFL, but instead sit at 4-4 following a loss to the Indianapolis Colts, at home. The Tennessee Titans meanwhile cannot establish an identity, and suffered a loss last week in San Diego to the Chargers.
The Packers have been plagued by poor coaching, a sub-par defense, unreliable receivers and at times an Aaron Rodgers who does not look like Aaron Rodgers. The team has still been putting up their fair share of points, with Rodgers striking for multiple touchdowns most weeks, but the defense cannot keep the team on top. Then there are the games where Mike McCarthy’s play calling holds the team back, while the wide receivers cannot catch a cold. Even Rodgers does not look right this season, even if his fantasy stats have been pretty solid his season. Overall, they have been a team I cannot put much faith in, especially as favorites on the road.
The Titans may hold a sub .500 record, but they have shown some really nice flashes on the year. Marcus Mariota and DeMarco Murray can look really dangerous at times, with Murray proving to be a major addition to the club’s roster. Their defense is not very good, and will likely give up a decent amount of points to the Packers offense. But the Titans offense will do the same, and when I look at these teams, I simply have some more faith in Murray and the Titans right now, even if they have been inconsistent.
