Thursday Night Football picks against the spread, picks, open thread

Who are our picks and use this as your game thread.

It is a bit of a snoozer of a matchup on Thursday Night Football this week if you are a casual fan. However, if you are a big football fan, you have at least a little intrigue here. The Tennessee Titans face the Jacksonville Jaguars. Both are not that good. But both have young, promising quarterbacks to watch. Tennessee has Marcus Mariota. The Jags have Blake Bortles, who was the one quarterback the Arizona Cardinals was completely sold on as a franchise player at the position.

Jacksonville will be donning new gold uniforms.

But what about the Vegas spread?

Jacksonville is favored by three entering tonight's game. The trends say go with the Jags. They are 7-1-1 in their last nine games against the Titans ATS. Plus, I like their offensive weapons and the fact they are at home on a short week. Who is my pick? Jags -3.

What about our writing staff and their straight up pick for the night?

Me: Jaguars
Jesse Reynolds: Jaguars
Shaun Church: Jaguars
Randy Fields: Jaguars
Tyler Derby: Jaguars
Robert Norman: Jaguars
Michael Ferguson: Bills

Michael is the only one going with Mariota and company. He was the only to get the Bills/Jets game correctly. Good work.

Now use this for your open thread. Do you have any of these players on your fantasy team? Who are you rooting for? In terms of the Cardinals, this game doesn't matter.
