This meeting between the 8-6 Titans and the 7-7 Redskins might not appear very exciting, but keep in mind both of these sides are still gunning for a potential Wild Card spot in the playoffs.
Tennessee are riding a three-game winning streak after defeating the Giants 17-0 last week. It was another huge 100-plus yard day for running back Derrick Henry, who has seen his yards-per-attempt increase from 2.3 to 5.0 over the course of two straight games.
The Redskins also pulled off a win last week over the hapless Jaguars. It was a big day for the Washington defence racking up two turnovers in the 16-13 victory, but with the Redskins quite literally limping their way toward the finish line, there’s not a lot to get excited about.
Since this is in an inter-conference battle, it’s not surprising to learn these two teams last met way back in 2014. The Redskins squeaked out a 19-17 win that day, but they’ll have their work cut out for them this time around in Tennessee – the Titans are 5-1 at home on the season.
