Tennessee vs. San Diego,
09/16/2012 16:15 EDT,
Score: 10 - 38
Point Spread: -6/-110 San Diego
San Diego Chargers -6
The Titans were crushed 34-13 at home by New England in Week 1, and it gets no easier in Week 2 when they visit San Diego.
The Tennessee Titans organization is 0-7 all-time versus the Chargers, and those defeats have come by an average of 15.7 points. Tennessee's 4 road losses in this span have come by an average of 18.3 points. It is also worth noting that all 4 came at least 8 points. The Titans have failed to cover the spread in all seven meetings.
Tennessee has not been a bounce-back play following a lopsided defeat as it is 0-4-1 ATS in its last 5 games following a loss of more than 14 points.
The Titans were held to just 20 rushing yards in Week 1, and I expect their struggles on the ground to continue against a San Diego stop unit that limited Oakland to only 45 rushing yards. This one will likely come down to which quarterback performs better, and you have to like Rivers over Jake Locker or Matt Hasselbeck. Rivers, who was sharp in the opener, should be able to pick apart a defense that allowed Tom Brady to complete 23 of 31 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns. Lay the points.
