The Tennessee Titans have had their fair share of ups and downs this season hovering around the .500 mark. The Titans dipped below that margin after falling short 14-7 against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5.

Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos were finally able to scratch for their first win of the season by moving past the Los Angeles Chargers 20-13 on the road this past Sunday. It has been a frustrating start to the year where they have largely been on the wrong side of close contests this season.

Nonetheless, this Week 6 matchup is a chance for both teams to trend further in the right direction.

Titans eyeing bounce-back outing on the road

Through the first five games, it has been extremely difficult to predict how the Titans will perform on a week-to-week basis, with them either playing up or down to their opponents that week. This was once again the case as they struggled to find any traction against the Buffalo Bills, falling 14-7 in a game that they could have easily pulled out. It certainly didn't help that kicker Cairo Santos missed four of his kicks that could have potentially given them a huge win at home against one of the better teams in the league. Instead, Tennessee fell back down to more of the same, with them struggling to find consistent play seemingly every week regardless of their opponent.

The Titans have proven to have a talented roster, but they have found it difficult to string together for an entire game. At the same time, they have struggled on offense, ranking 23rd with 19.6 points per contest, 28th in passing, and 16th in rushing. They have been a lackluster offense through the first five games that has kept them truly breaking through in the AFC South, which looks to be a division up for grabs with the Houston Texans leading the way with a 3-2 record heading into Week 6. The Titans do have a favorable matchup ahead of them against the Broncos, who have struggled against the run giving up 126.4 yards per carry this season. It may open the way for Derrick Henry to break through with his best performance of the season to put up his second 100 rushing yards in 2019. All of this shaping up for Tennessee to bounce back on the road against a struggling team in Denver.

Broncos hoping to secure second straight win

After going through four frustrating weeks of winless football, the Broncos finally scratched with their first win of the season by topping the Los Angeles Chargers on the road. It has encapsulated what has been a difficult start to the year, with them struggling to break through in any significant manner. The bulk of their issues have come in the way of their offense that has been one of the least productive units in the league. They are currently tied for 26th with 18.0 points per contest, along with being 19th in passing and 14th in rushing. Their lack of strong dependency on either end hasn't allowed them get in the win column on a more consistent basis. Offseason addition Joe Flacco has had his ups and downs this season as he has passed for 1,258 yards with six touchdowns to four interceptions with a 90.8 passer rating. Flacco has thrown an interception in the last four straight games while being sacked multiple times all but once.

The addition of Flacco was expected to bring in stability to the position in the short term, but he has struggled to provide that as he has shown that his best days may be behind him considering the offense has struggled to put points on the board. The Broncos do have strong production from second-year running back Phillip Lindsay proving to be a major factor in the running game. Lindsay has rushed for 327 yards on 69 carries for 4.7 yards per attempt and three touchdowns along with 17 receptions for 142 receiving yards. He's on pace to notch 1,362 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns while he's coming off his best performance of the year, where he had 114 rushing yards on 15 carries, a touchdown and four receptions for 33 receiving yards. However, he will be going up against one of the league's top defenses that is sixth in the league. giving up 15.2 points per contest. If the Broncos hope to pull out the second straight win at home, they will need their offense led by Lindsay to put up a strong performance.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Broncos may have the momentum of coming off their first win of the season, but they are set to go up against one of the top defenses in the league. The Titans' defense should be the difference in the contest, while their running game, led by Henry, should set the tone offensively to get them back on track. It will be a lower-scoring affair, but one that Tennessee will have control of on Sunday afternoon.

Prediction: Tennessee +2

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Going off that same trend, the Titans defense should be what sets the table for the contest, making points difficult to come by. The Broncos are already struggling to sustain scoring drives, which will be much harder going up against the sixth-best scoring defense at home.  All that in mind, this is a game that will fall below the over/under line.

Prediction: Under 39
