Expert Analysis & Prediction for Saints vs TitansI know Tennessee has been playing very well ever since elevating veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill to their starting spot over Marcus Mariota, but the Titans have struggled at home by going 4-3 at Nissan Stadium while New Orleans has only lost once on the road while winning five straight away from home.
More importantly, the Saints have an offense that the Titans just won’t be able to keep up with in this affair. Drew Brees is still playing like a spry 25-year-old for the most part and the Saints have a ton riding on the line, plus a big edge in experience. New Orleans has gone 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games as a road favorite and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall and that will be good enough for Brees and company to get it done in this intriguing Week 16 inter-conference clash.
Score: New Orleans Saints 27 – Tennessee Titans 23
