A few weeks ago, no one would have pegged the San Diego Chargers vs. the Tennessee Titans as a particularly interesting affair. After an impressive opening couple of games for the Titans and a resurgent Week 2 from the Chargers, however, Sunday's game all of a sudden carries a fair amount of intrigue, and has experts torn over who will emerge victorious.
The Titans kicked off 2013 with an win over an admittedly hapless Steelers team, but followed it up with an impressive performance against the Texans, coming up just short in overtime of knocking off the AFC South favorites. After blowing a 21-point second-half lead to those same Texans in Week 1, Philip Rivers and the Chargers redeemed themselves with a 31-28 victory over Chip Kelly's run-and-gun Eagles last weekend.
It will be interesting to see in which direction these two teams head from here on. For their part, experts around the country are torn over who will come out on top. Over at ESPN, Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter are taking the Titans, while Mike Golic has the Chargers. CBS Sports is also giving the slight edge to Tennessee, with five of it's eight experts leaning that way.
Gambling odds also favor the Titans, with the opening line putting the spread at three points, according to Oddsshark.com.
