San Francisco didn’t have too much trouble with the Atlanta Falcons at home on Sunday as they won 31-13. San Francisco’s RB Jeff Wilson looked sharp as he 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.
There was early excitement for Tennessee after they claimed the game’s first points on Sunday, but it was the Pittsburgh Steelers who ended up claiming the real prize. Tennessee didn’t finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 19-13 to Pittsburgh. QB Ryan Tannehill wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Titans; Tannehill threw one interception and fumbled the ball once with only 153 yards passing.
Tennessee is now 9-5 while San Francisco sits at 8-6. Both teams are in the playoff hunt, so this is a critical game.
A pair of offensive stats to keep an eye on: San Francisco comes into the matchup boasting the third most rushing touchdowns in the league at 20. Tennessee is completely their equal: they also come into the contest with 20 rushing touchdowns.
