Titans @ Giants

Recommended Posts



The Giants never defeated the Titans while they were based in Houston (and known as the Oilers), going 0-5. However, New York won its first five games against them after the team moved to Tennessee in 1997. That streak ended in the last meeting, though, with the Titans defeating the Giants, 36-7, in 2014.

The Titans rushed for 264 yards last week, their most in any game since 2009 and the 11th most in franchise history. Their four rushing touchdowns were their most in any game since 2013 and tied for the second most in franchise history.

The Giants have gained at least 125 yards rushing in four straight games, the first time that's happened since 2007. The last time the Giants had a five-game streak with 125 yards rushing was in 1993.

Both the Titans and Giants got off to slow starts, but both turned their seasons around after their bye week. Tennessee was 3-4 before its bye and is 4-2 since. New York was 1-7 before its bye and is 4-1 since.

Derrick Henry rushed for a franchise-record 238 yards and four touchdowns in Week 14 against Jacksonville. Henry's 238 yards were a Titans franchise record, and his four rushing touchdowns tied a franchise record held by Earl Campbell (1978) and Lorenzo White (1990).

Saquon Barkley has rushed for 100 yards in four straight games, one shy of Tiki Barber's franchise record. Barkley is also looking to become the third rookie in NFL history to have a streak of 100 yards rushing in at least five straight games (Franco Harris -- six games, 1972; Curtis Martin -- five games, 1995).
