Jets @ Titans

Who will WIN this matchup?

New York Jets (3-8)

@ Tennessee Titans (5-6)


Current odds:

New York Jets: (+375)

Tennessee Titans: (-500)


The line for the game is Tennessee by 9.5 points.

Josh McCown has completed just 54.4 percent of his passes with one touchdown and three interceptions in two games filling in for Darnold, and the veteran is also hampered by back and hand injuries. “I mean, yeah,” Darnold told the media when asked if he’s pushing to start this week. “I want to play really bad. But at the same time, I understand it’s a process.” The Jets lead the AFC with 17 interceptions — including four by Darnold in his last game Nov. 4 at Miami — and the passers get little support from a running game that has averaged 77.5 yards per game since its out-of-nowhere 323-yard effort in a win over Denver on Oct. 7.

With two home games in a span of five days (Jacksonville pays a visit Thursday night), Tennessee is eager to set a tone in front of the home fans. “The goal is you don’t get down against the Jets,” said coach Mike Vrabel, who saw his team start strong and never look back in the rout of the Patriots. “If we start fast, which I hope we do and continue on that path with a lead and try to keep it so we can control the game. We will try to start fast and execute early and play complementary. We have to play hard and give our fans something to cheer about.” Of course, that didn’t pay dividends when the Titans lost an early 10-0 lead in last week’s 34-17 loss to Houston, a result that came in spite of Marcus Mariota completing 22-of-23 passes for 303 yards and two scores.

New York is 29th in the league with 199 passing yards per game. Tennessee is 30th (191).
