Thursday Night Football: Green Bay Packers vs Tennessee Titans

The 4-6 Green Bay Packers are coming off a 31-28 overtime win over the Dallas Cowboys that may have saved their season, and they'll try to build momentum for a playoff push when they host the 6-3 Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football in Week 11. The Packers are 3.0-point favorites to nab their second consecutive victory against a winning team.
The Packers scored their most points of the season against the Cowboys in Week 10 on the back of a stellar run game, but rushing yards could be hard to come by against the Titans. The Packers rushed for an amazing 207 yards on 39 attempts Sunday, and that efficiency opened up passing opportunities for quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who threw for a season-high 146.7 passer rating. But the Titans' have one of the league's elite run defenses; they rank second in rushing yards allowed, and third in rushing yards per attempt allowed. If the Packers are going to score meaningful points Thursday, they'll need Rodgers to come through on his own.

As for the Titans, they'll hope they can keep Thursday's game a low-scoring affair. The Titans offense has gained the fewest yards in the league this season despite the continued excellence of running back Derrick Henry, who has averaged 102.6 rushing yards per game at a 4.6 yards per attempt clip. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill has been adequate on his limited chances, averaging 6.25 net yards per attempt and a 93.0 passer rating on 28 dropbacks per game. If the Titans want to compete in the playoffs this year, they'll need to move the ball more and score more points, and that means leaning more heavily on the passing game.

The Tennessee Titans visit the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football at 8:15 PM ET.
