The Carolina Panthers (1-9) take to the road to face the Tennessee Titans (3-7) on Sunday at the Nissan Stadium for a Week 12 matchup. The Tennessee Titans enter Week 12 in fourth place in the AFC South after going 3-7 in the regular season so far, while the Carolina Panthers are 1-9 and fourth in the AFC South. The Tennessee Titans need a win and they need it fast for them to be able to keep dreaming of reaching the playoffs. Three defeats in a row is costly, and Carolina Panthers should be wary of an opponent super motivated to end their current poor run.
Form Tennessee Titans
A 34-14 defeat to the Jacksonville Jaguars last time out extended the Tennessee Titans’ losing streak to three games, leaving the hosts 3-7 across their past 10 outings.
Things haven’t improved on the offense front for the Tennessee Titans at all, having put just 16.0 points on board across the last five matches. In all, the offense has averaged 16.8 points for the season. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been nothing special. In its last five outings, opponents have scored 24.2 points against them per contest—a number that is squarely in line with the unit’s 21.4 points season average.
Last season, the Tennessee Titans came home in second place in the AFC South standings after going 7-10 across all games. The hosts naturally hope to go even better this season. However, like every other team in the NFL, sealing a spot in the playoff during this regular season is the first and foremost priority for now.
Form Carolina Panthers
Form is not looking good for Carolina Panthers, who came up short in a 10-33 defeat against Dallas Cowboys last week. Moreover, they have lost their last six road matches in a row. Their overall record for the last 10 games is 1-9.
The Carolina Panthers offense has struggled to bring its A-game this season, putting up a mere 16.3 points on average. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The visitors have given up 26.2 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 27.5 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
The previous campaign was one to forget for the Carolina Panthers. The visitors failed to reach the playoffs, having finished second in the NFC South at 7-10. They are expected to miss the NFL postseason again, having gone 1-9 so far in the current campaign.
The Carolina Panthers were able to avenge their 34-27 defeat against the Tennessee Titans in August 2017 by winning the latest meeting between the two teams 30-20 at the Bank of America Stadium. Judging by the way the past seven head-to-head matches played out, the visitors are probably savoring this latest matchup. They have claimed four wins straight up and only lost three times.
The Tennessee Titans tallied 19.57 points on average per game from their seven most recent head-to-head games against the Carolina Panthers. The latter managed an average of 19.29 points in comparison.
