Through 3 Quarters
Their last head-to-head December of 2017 was close, and so far it looks like that’s how the Tennessee Titans and the San Francisco 49ers will finish this one. Tennessee and San Francisco are deadlocked at 10-10 after three quarters, promising an exciting conclusion.
The Titans have been riding high on the performance of WR A.J. Brown, who has caught eight passes for 97 yards. RB Jeff Wilson has led the way so far for San Francisco, as he has punched in one rushing touchdown.

What to Know
The San Francisco 49ers will square off against the Tennessee Titans on the road at 8:20 p.m. ET Thursday at Nissan Stadium. San Francisco should still be riding high after a win, while the Titans will be looking to right the ship.
While not quite a landslide, the contest between San Francisco and the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday was still a pretty decisive one as the 49ers wrapped it up with a 31-13 victory at home. Among those leading the charge for San Francisco was RB Jeff Wilson, who rushed for one TD and 110 yards on 21 carries. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Wilson has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season.
Meanwhile, Tennessee might have drawn first blood against the Pittsburgh Steelers this past Sunday, but it was Pittsburgh who got the last laugh. The Titans didn’t finish too far behind, but the team still lost 19-13 to the Steelers. One thing holding Tennessee back was the mediocre play of QB Ryan Tannehill, who did not have his best game: despite one touchdown, he threw one interception and fumbled the ball once with only 4.78 yards per passing attempt.
Tennessee is now 9-5 while San Francisco sits at 8-6. Both teams are in the playoff hunt, so this is a critical matchup.
