Seahawks vs Titans odds and prediction for NFL Week 2 game
By Jake Luppino
The Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans finished on opposite ends of the spectrum in their Week 1 bouts. Seattle was the hunter while Tennessee got hunted. But, Week 1 typically leads to an overreaction that isn’t justified as it is only one game. Although, there is no denying that Tennessee needs to play better this Sunday.
The Titans and Cardinals were one of the premier matchups in Week 1. Both teams had made significant moves in the offseason with the hopes of making a legitimate push at the Vince Lombardi trophy.
In fact, after acquiring Julio Jones, many thought the Titans would have one of the best offenses in the entire NFL. Well, that certainly wasn’t the case last weekend as they got pummeled. The Cardinals defense was led by Chandler Jones, who finished the game with 5 sacks.
Seahawks and Titans week two: Odds and a prediction
Speaking of defense, Bobby Wagner and the Seattle Seahawks made a statement in their Week 1 game on the road. They were able to apply pressure on Wentz all game long, making big play after big play helping this Seahawks team jump out to yet another 1-0 start. Offensively, Russell Wilson sliced and diced the Indy defense playing a near-perfect first half. After seeing what Kyler Murray just did to Tennessee, I know 12s are salivating at the opportunity that lies ahead this Sunday.

Seahawks vs Titans Prediction Week 2
This Week 2 matchup will feature many marquee players — most of them coming on the offensive side of the ball. Russell Wilson, Chris Carson, Tyler Lockett, DK Metcalf, Derrick Henry, Julio Jones, AJ Brown. Despite the impressive defensive play from Seattle last week, many are expecting a high-scoring affair at Lumen Field.
There are a couple of reasons I am in the minority on this game. First off, the Seahawks defensive pass rush is very similar to last year’s – in which they closed out the season as one of the best. Secondly, this Titans defense will not slow down Russell Wilson. Thirdly and most importantly — my key to this game — the return of the 12s.
KEY TO THE GAME: The 12s
The Seattle Seahawks have desperately missed their fans. There are numerous players on this team that have yet to play in front of the best fans in the NFL. Majority of them coming on the defensive side of the ball. Where – it is worth noting – the 12s rub off on the most.
On a third and long when the fans are going absolutely crazy, this defensive line (including Jamal Adams) will be able to feed off that energy and make a play. We have seen it happen for years.
I expect another double-digit margin as the Seahawks beat the Titans 31-20 in Week 2.
