LINE: Green Bay -3

TO CHEW: Is the pack back? The team of Aaron (Rodgers, three TDs) and Aaron (Jones, 138 rushing yards, one TD) led Green Bay to an upset 31-28 win over the Cowboys last week. So now the Packers have won one of their last six games and they’re considered an NFC threat again? They are preferred to a Titans team that has won six of its last seven games? How does it work exactly? … Derrick Henry failed to reach triple-digit rushing distance for the first time in six games, but the Titans beat the Broncos 17-10 to close out Denver’s admittedly weak running game … Two questions loom over this one: what kind of havoc will Henry do against a Packers defense that has allowed more yardage than all teams but six and 2) What will Rodgers do against a Titans team that ranks 31st in defense against passes? … One receiver Rodgers can’t rip is Christian Walker, a 23-year-old second-round pick who had four catches for 107 yards while passing all three touchdowns last week. Before that outburst, Walker’s best game was his NFL debut a few months ago. He had two catches for 34 yards…As good as Jones is, Tennessee’s run defense is second-best in the league, giving up an average of 85.1 yards per game, which is a lot like the Niners…Historically speaking , these two teams usually fight each other. pretty good. Strip away a Titans overtime victory 15 years ago, the average winning margin in four games split 2-2 is 29.2 points…Tennessee fans don’t want the line to change at all. Titans coach Mike Vrabel is 20-7 ATS as a three-or-more underdog…Is the peloton back? More like coming back to lose this week.


SCORE (O/U 42.5): Titans 24, Packers 20
