The Titans will host the 49ers in a Thursday night battle with playoff implications for both teams.
Coming off a 19-13 loss to the Steelers, the Titans (9-5) will be looking to stay atop the AFC South standings. A win against San Francisco would keep Tennessee above Indianapolis (8-6), which has won eight of its past 11 games after starting the season 0-3.
In the loss to the Steelers, Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw for just 153 yards and turned the ball over twice. The Tennessee offense fared much better on the ground with the team rushing for more than 200 yards, including 108 yards from running back D’Onta Foreman. However, with leading wide receiver A.J. Brown back on the field, Tannehill should be able to find more success through the air.

The 49ers (8-6), meanwhile, are hoping to extend their winning streak to three games and hold onto an NFC wild-card spot. Kyle Juszczyk, Deebo Samuel and Jeff Wilson Jr. each scored rushing touchdowns in a win over Atlanta on Sunday, but it could be difficult to find running lanes against Tennessee. The Titans rank second in the league in rushing yards allowed per game (86.9) behind only the Ravens (86.2).
