Bill Speros writes: "Both coaches (Mike Vrabel of the Titans and Washington’s Ron Rivera) are former NFL defensive stars who continue to flirt with the proverbial hot seat, mostly due to the lack offensive production. Such irony. There's no such thing as a home-field advantage at FedEx Field. The Titans have won two straight and scored a critical AFC South win at Indianapolis. The Commanders are the lone drag in the NFC East, which has 11 wins, the most of any division in the NFL. We grabbed Tennessee as a pick 'em when this line was initially set for our NFL Week 5 picks. The line has since moved to Tennessee -2.5."

Draft Kings: Go with the Commanders with the points vs. Titans

It writes: "The Commanders have scored just 18 combined points in the last two weeks, albeit they did face back-to-back formidable defenses in the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys. Conversely, the Titans rank 29th against the run and 24th against the pass. Washington’s offense should be able to get back on track as they return back from this Week 5 contest."

Fan Duel: Titans 24, Commanders 13

Devon Platana writes: "If the Commanders continue to play as they have, the Titans shouldn't break much of a sweat. Washington currently owns the fourth-worst scoring defense in the league and although Tennessee is sixth-worst, most of the damage against the latter came from a 41-point effort by the Buffalo Bills in Week 2. The Commanders aren't even close to the Bills' level, scoring a mere 18 points over the last two weeks. Throw in the fact that Washington is also tied for sixth-most turnovers (seven) while its defense can't stop a nosebleed and it's easy to like the Titans' odds of winning here. Unless they forgot how to play football over the next week, back the Titans here."
