Last time out, Tennessee hosted the Indianapolis Colts and suffered a disappointing 34-17 defeat. This was a game that went back and forth in the first half, but Indy scored the final 24 points of the game, and the only 21 points of the second half, to come away with the huge division win. QB Ryan Tannehill did not have his best night as he went 1527 for 147 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Derrick Henry had his normal good night with 103 yards on 19 carries. The Tennessee defense gave up 430 total yards on the night.
The Baltimore Ravens visited the New England Patriots and suffered a shocking 23-17 loss in the pouring rain. Baltimore led this game midway through the second quarter, but New England took the lead right before the half and never gave it up. Baltimore still hasn’t seemed to figure it out yet this season.

The Baltimore defense held the Patriots to 308 total yards on the night.
