I want to pick the Titans because they're my favorite team but given the Titans final injury report the Titans can't beat the Panthers at the Panthers home stadium. The Titans will be without Delanie Walker (their best TE and a key player) and Ben Jones (their solid center who's having a great season, and their pro-bowl defensive lineman Jurrell Casey. I'm taking the Panthers. I think Christian McCaffery will make the Titans's defense look silly.

Let's hope. I'm taking the Panthers by 7.

@Yettee Giants play Monday Night, how do you see them going against the Cowboys?
The line I'm seeing is 7.5 to the Giants.

It's a tough one. I'd like to say Giants, but they really look shaky. I feel like nameless with the Titans.

Cowboys -7.5

And now the Titans are saying they may be without their starting RT Jack Conklin. This is ridiculous.

Added in 22 hours 52 minutes 5 seconds:
The Titans are getting their asses kicked. It's 10 to zero in favor of the Panthers. The Panthers are in control of the game and they're getting close to the goal again. The Titans still at zero and seem unable to move the ball.

Added in 19 minutes 55 seconds:
The Panthers score again. It's 17 to 0. Titans cornerback, Malcolm Butler, has been being beaten badly so far in the first half and he just came off the field with an injury.

Added in 7 minutes 54 seconds:
The Panthers score again. It's 17 to 0.

One thing that's apparent is that the Titans offense keeps backing up from penalties. This is really killing them. Penalties is the biggest reason why the Titans offense can't move the ball forward enough to have a chance at the endzone.

Halftime.

Added in 35 minutes 14 seconds:
5 minutes left in the 3rd quarter and the score is 24 to 7. The Titans scored a TD right after halftime but then the Panthers answered with a TD of their own. It looks like the Tennessee defense is maybe worn down and can't stop the Panthers offense.

Added in 32 minutes 42 seconds:
It's now 30 to 14 in favor of the Panthers with 10 minutes to go The Titans screwed this game up with all of those penalties in the first half, which got them so far behind that it will be hard to catch up. They've been playing better offensively in the 2nd half but they're running out of time. McCaffrey's having a great game.

Added in 40 minutes 39 seconds:
Panthers beat Titans 30 to 20. The Titans OL is banged up bad.

This week it's even worse for the Titans than it was last week.

Last week they were missing 3 key players - Jurrell Casey, Jayon Brown, and Delanie Walker.

This week they're missing 5 key players - Jurrell Casey, Jayon Brown, Delanie Walker, Malcolm Butler, and Corey Davis.

And the Titans will be playing against one of the top 3 teams in the NFL.

Ouch. This is awful.

But I'm taking the Titans anyway because their backs are to the wall.

I'll take the Titans by 10.

I'll also take the Giants in the battle of New York, they are actually favorites for once.

Ha, definitely the Giants. Giants -2.5. The Jets are a disaster.

As my second pick, I'll take the Bills +2.5 vs. the Browns. The Browns are at home but they're another disaster, while the Bills are pretty good.

It appears titans lose.

Added in 8 minutes 22 seconds:
WTF?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Titans got the ball and scored again. The Titans are ahead by 3 point and there's only 23 seconds let in the game. If the Titans D stands tall for just a few plays the Titans probably win this game.

The Titans defense held. They won by 3 points.

Shit, Titans win! Mahomes throws for 446 yards, 3 TD's and the Titans still beat them.

Great job!

Yep... Giants are really, really bad to lose to the Jets. And the Bills are what they always are... average.

Good to see. I remember you being concerned about this game around a month ago.
