Who will win Sunday when the Titans face the Saints. Our prediction is here.

The Tennessee Titans will have a tough challenge on Sunday to try to slow down the high powered New Orleans Saints offense. Can they do it? We make our prediction here in our Friday Prediction. . Emphisis

Drew Brees racked up over 500 yards passing and seven touchdowns in last week's New Orleans Saints win over the New York Giants, and this week they face a Tennessee Titans defense that ranks in the top of the NFL in most statistical categories. However, the Titans offense has struggled to score points of last and if thus game becomes a shootout it could be tough for the Titans to keep up.

Marcus Mariota is expected to return for the Titans but they offense will be without wide reciever Kendall Wright who is out with a knee injury. That means that the Titans running game, which new interim head coach Mike Mularkey has places an emphasis on will need to step up and produce to help the offense sustain drives and remain on the field.

The Titans run game has shown flashes but was never consistant under former head coach Ken Whisenhunt, who never allowed the run game to produce because of his penchant for the passing game.

When the Titans need to pass, wide receivers Justin Hunter and Dorial Green-Beckham must step up in the absence of Wright.

Who will win on Sunday? Our final prediction is in the video above.
