Week 16 will begin with a showdown on Thursday night from Nashville. The San Francisco 49ers will clash with the Tennessee Titans as major playoff implications are on the line for both teams.
San Francisco is rolling and have won five of their last six games to sit comfortably in a wild card position.
Tennessee has struggled with injuries and have lost three of their last four games and no longer control their destiny over a playoff spot.
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco has gotten red hot during the second half of the season and have positioned themselves securely in a playoff position. The 49ers most recent win came in the fashion of a dominating home 31-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Jimmy Garoppolo had another serviceable performance, finishing 18/23 passing for 235 yards and a touchdown. George Kittle continued his dominance and finished with team highs of 6 receptions and 93 yards. Over his last three games, Kittle has averaged more than 140 yards. He, too, is playing arguably the best football of his career at the exact right time.
Jeff Wilson Jr. carried the load on the ground in Elijah Mitchell’s absence and had his best game of the season. Wilson finished with a team high 21 carries for 110 yards and a touchdown.
The 49ers remaining games are on the road in Tennessee, home to Houston, and on the road in LA against the Rams for potentially the top wild card spot.
Tennessee dropped another inexcusable game this past week, falling to Pittsburgh 19-13 on the road. The Titans dominated the first half and held a commanding 13-3 halftime lead and received the second half kickoff. Their hopes of a #1 seed came crumbling down as the Titans offense was shutout in the second half in another mediocre performance.
The Titans offense has been this teams achilles heel as key injuries to Derrick Henry, AJ Brown, and Julio Jones have nullified any playmaking. Add to the fact that Tennessee has been beat in the turnover battle an astounding 13-0 in their last three losses it is no surprise why they continue to lose winnable games.
The team is lacking playmakers as every yard seems to be a struggle right now. Ryan Tannehill hasn’t picked up the slack with his targets missing and has looked very mediocre with the ball in his hands.
The Titans will have a serious gut check on a short week after an embarrassing loss. A #1 seed is still a possibly but so is missing the playoffs all together. The outcome of this game could make or break this team entirely.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Titans +3.5 & Under 44.5
These teams are trending in opposite directions which is exactly why I like Tennessee in this spot. The Titans answer the ball when they’re overlooked and counted out which will certainly be the case this week among media.
These teams matching up very similarly from a roster and game plan perspective which leans in the Titans favor as well as the underdog. Also, the Tennessee run defense is one of the best in the league which will do it’s best to stifle this strong 49ers run game and place the pressure on Jimmy G.
The Titans are struggling right now but they know they have the ability to strengthen the ship. There is no better time then at home against a West Coast team on a short week.
Take the Titans and the UNDER as this game will be a battle of field position.
