Onto Week 16 of the 2021 NFL season, the Tennessee Titans head back home to host a San Francisco 49ers team that has won five out of their last six games.
The Titans have lost their last three out of four contests, but they can officially clinch the AFC South with a win and an Indianapolis loss.
The 49ers are led by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who has averaged just over 236 yards per game during San Francisco’s recent hot stretch, to go along with a robust 72-percent completion rate.
“He’s taking care of the football, he’s been accurate,” Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said of Garoppolo on Tuesday. “He seems to be in command of everything that they’re doing. I mean, he’s playing well, he’s got a very good completion percentage, and they’re number one in the red zone.”
The Titans’ offense will look to get back on track against a defense that is 12th against the run (108.6 YPG) and seventh in passing yards allowed (213.2 YPG).
Here’s everything the Titans are saying in advance of their matchup with the 49ers on “Thursday Night Football.”
