Undoubtedly one of the biggest match-ups from NFL Week 11 will occur during the early window between a pair of AFC powerhouses as the Tennessee Titans take on the Baltimore Ravens.
Both teams enter this game with identical 6-3 records, and with playoff positioning salrrady at a premium, you can bet both head coaches are prioritiing this Sunday encounter.
For the Titans, they have some reported injury concerns, and many of which we won’t likely know until hours before kickoff on Sunday. Perhaps that explains why this game was off the board so often throughout this week. The Titans are coming off an extended break, but having lost their last matchup against the Colts, Tennessee needs a rebound outing this week.
It won’t be easy against one of the sport’s most talented sides in Baltimore. But perhaps they’re catching the Ravens at the right time, as Baltimore has been struggling in recent weeks. Last time out, their offense looked dreadful against the lowly New England Patriots, and with the division already slipping away from Baltimore – this veteran group knows they cannot continue to underperform in winnable games.
With urgency the main theme here it should produce quite the match-up on Sunday. Continue reading on beneath the posted odds for further game analysis, team news, and our official betting selection for the Ravens vs. Titans on Sunday. Enjoy the game!

Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens Pick:
Expect a better outing for the Titans offense this week, compared to when we last saw them vs. the Colts in Week 10. Though Baltimore typically has a solid defense, they will again be without Calais Campbell and Brandon Williams. They were gashed by the Patriots without that feared duo, and the Titans offense should be able to at least replicate that.
Devoid of that duo, it certainly opens things up quite a bit for the Titans elite running back, Derrick Henry. The human bulldozer should be able to get whatever he wants on the ground, and this should in turn open up the offense through the air for Ryan Tannehill. Baltimore usually has a steady secondary, but A.J. Brown is quickly establishing himself as one of the game’s elite receivers – and he can be counted upon to find some space for big gains.
On the other side of the ball, the Titans too boast a steady defense, but enter Week 11 with some questionable injury concerns. It’s certainly worth monitoring the inactives list on Sunday morning prior to kickoff.
Whoever is in the lineup, they’ll need to deal with the dual-threat ability of Lamar Jackson. Though this is surely a down year by the former MVP’s standards, really he’s just not as dynamic due to an offensive line that has been downgraded. That could be an issue again this week as Tennessee can offer up a solid pass rush and force Jackson into some rushed situations.
As of now, let’s take a heavy lean toward the Titans. Though it’s rumored that they’ll be weakened within their secondary and along their offensive line – this number is still too high given the Ravens’ injury concerns as well. Baltimore also has another huge clash on Thursday against Pittsburgh, and that could be seen as a pretty large lookahead spot. Lean to the depleted Titans to keep this one tight on Sunday.
