The Redskins have produced 114 rush yards per game and have 12 touchdowns via handoffs this year. The Titans are totaling 131 rush yards per contest and have 14 total rushing TDs.
It seems like the Titans might hold an advantage in all aspects of the ground game. Their backfield has generated 4.5 yards per carry while the defense is allowing 4.3 yards per rush attempt to opponents. The Redskins have tallied 4.3 yards per carry while allowing a YPC of 4.6 to opponents.

Johnson has put up 151 pass yards this year. He’s connected on 16-of-25 attempts with one passing touchdowns and has yet to throw an interception. Johnson’s got a 5.57 adjusted net yards per pass attempt overall, although that number sits at 7.41 over the last two games.
We expect the Washington offense to mix it up in this one. Jamison Crowder, Josh Johnson and Adrian Peterson have combined to account for 317 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns as a trio over the last two outings.
Marcus Mariota has tallied 2,256 yards, 11 TDs and seven INTs for Tennessee. His ANY/A stands at 5.80 for the year and 4.28 over his last two outings.
We’re looking for the Titans to dictate tempo by pounding the defense with their running backs. Taywan Taylor (335 receiving yards, one TD this season) has stepped up lately, but Derrick Henry (644 rush yards, seven rush TDs) and Dion Lewis (499 rush yards, one rush TD, 318 receiving yards, one receiving TD) have been key factors in the Titans’ recent offensive gameplans.
