Packers-Titans: Week Nine Prediction and Analysis

NFL Week Nine: Green Bay Packers vs. Tennessee Titans

We have reached the turning point of the NFL season, and now, more than ever, teams are trying to turn the corner and get themselves in line to take the next step. 

One team who has been a big surprise to many is the Tennessee Titans. With their stingy defense and their running back duo, they are currently undefeated. Their next task: a home game against the Green Bay Packers,.

In this matchup, watch for the Tennessee Titans' defense to, once again, put up great numbers. The defensive line of the Titans should control the running game and get their hands on Aaron Rodgers on a few occasions. 

On the opposite side of the ball, watch for the running game of Tennessee to “run away” with this one. With both LenDale White and Chris Johnson, this rushing attack should have a very productive game against the 25th-ranked defense against the run. 

Tennessee’s offensive line will control the line of scrimmage. Kerry Collins may not be asked to make the big plays, but if he has to, he doesn’t make many mistakes. Kerry Collins has not been sacked in the last five games, and he should go untouched Sunday. 

 

Fantasy Prediction

Aaron Rodgers - 180 yds; 1 touchdown; 1 int

Ryan Grant - 55 yds; 1 fumble

Greg Jennings - 65 yds; 1 touchdown

Donald Driver – 30 yds;

Kerry Collins – 190 yds; 1 touchdown; 1 int

LenDale White – 90 yds; 2 touchdowns

Chris Johnson – 135 yds; 1 touchdown

Justin McCareins – 60 yds

Prediction:  Green Bay 13, Tennessee 31
