Los Angeles Chargers vs. Tennessee Titans 9/17/23 NFL Week 2 Prediction, Odds, and Analysis

Los Angeles Chargers (0-1) vs. Tennessee Titans (0-1)

After an unexpected 0-1 start for both teams, the Los Angeles Chargers and the Tennessee Titans are gearing up for a crucial Week 2 showdown. As NFL daily picks start to filter in, both teams look to rebound and prove that their Week 1 performances were mere flukes.

The Chargers demonstrated their potential even after suffering their season’s opening loss in Week 1. Austin Ekeler, their multifaceted running back, put on an exceptional show by amassing 117 rushing yards on 16 attempts for an astounding average of 7.3 yards per rush – far exceeding the league average. Furthermore, Ekeler is known to use both his running ability and receiving skills out of the backfield, making him a difficult matchup for any defense to handle – which will prove crucial in their battle against the Titans. Keenan Allen stood out during Week 1 as a reliable wide receiver who made six receptions for 76 yards yet did not score. Although Allen did not score, his presence made other players easier to get open – his smooth route-running and strong hands make crucial plays possible when needed, adding another layer of stability and veteran leadership for this young Chargers team. Furthermore, Allen has strong chemistry with quarterback Justin Herbert that may pay dividends over time.

The Titans had an underwhelming Week 1 performance, failing to find the trademark spark that propelled them through previous campaigns. Yet there are key players on their side who could quickly turn things around. Derrick Henry is an unflappable force once he gets going and only managed 63 yards in this game; normally his average per carry of 4.2 is much higher due to his proven ability to dominate games; therefore, the Titans should look at giving more ball carriers like him the ball to establish their run game against Chargers. DeAndre Hopkins stands out as an exceptional receiver for the Titans. Even though he recorded just 65 yards in Week 1, his career stats show his incredible potential for explosion. Hopkins boasts excellent hands and route-running skills; as his relationship with quarterback Ryan Tannehill develops, we should anticipate even greater offense from this dynamic duo. Lastly, Hopkins’ performance will be vital if Tennessee wants to diversify its offensive arsenal beyond sole reliance on run play.

Justin Herbert QB vs. Ryan Tannehill QB

Justin Herbert and Ryan Tannehill will likely put on an intriguing quarterback duel this Sunday. Herbert leads into this match-up with an impressive 69.7% completion rate from Week 1, accounting for 228 passing yards and one touchdown while being sacked three times; nevertheless, he managed a 99.1 passer rating despite that feat. His quick release, field vision, and accuracy make him one of the young quarterbacks to watch this season; Austin Ekeler provides reliable running game support, while Keenan Allen provides reliable receiving help as targets and receiving support.

Ryan Tannehill had an awful performance in Week 1. With only a 47.1% completion rate, no touchdown passes, and three interceptions combined for an awful passer rating of 28.8, Tannehill was even sacked three times and managed only 198 passing yards total. Although Tannehill has shown his ability in previous seasons, his latest performance has raised serious doubts about his consistency as Titans quarterback; therefore, this week marks an opportunity to redeem himself against a Chargers defense that can be stubborn and tough against quarterbacks like him.

No one should underestimate Tannehill’s pressure as he attempts to lead an inconsistent running game led by Derrick Henry, who has yet to find his groove. On the other hand, Herbert enjoys more leeway due to a more balanced offensive unit; therefore, this quarterback battle may largely determine the tempo and outcome of the Week 2 matchup.
