Look, the Titans just don’t score that many points. They rank 27th in total scoring, averaging a yawn-inducing 19.5 points per game. Furthermore, the Titans have failed to score double digits three times this season—in Week 7 against the Atlanta Falcons, Week 8 against divisional rival Houston and last week against Gang Green.
Just like last week, the Patriots will allow a pair of first half field goals before pitching a second half shutout.
