San Francisco has played better in recent games, but they shouldn’t be the favorite. SF has beaten teams like Atlanta while Tennessee has had to play against teams like Pittsburgh and New England.
The last time SF was on the road, they lost to the Seattle Seahawks. Tennessee had the game against Pittsburgh won until imploding in the fourth quarter. The Titans shouldn’t implode at home. Tennessee is good enough to win this straight up. They’re definitely worth a look to cover.
