The Tennessee Titans travel to the Northeast to face the Baltimore Ravens in the first pre-season game for both teams.

According to the DraftKings Sportsbook, Raven is the 3.5-point favorite, with Baltimore starting at -190, while Tennessee is at +160. The total score of the game is 31

Many of the star players of each team will not have time to play in this game to protect them and protect them from possible injuries. 

John Harbaugh previously announced that Ravens QB star Lamar Jackson would not be taking any pictures during the pre-season opening.

Quarterback

Hopefully Tyler Huntley gets the majority of reps, & Brett Hundley gets some as well. Head coach Mike Vrabel has not made a public decision on who will & will not play on Thursday.

So expect Ryan Tannehill to start at least one or two trips. Behind him, rookie Malik Willis will also see a lot of representation.

Last year, the Ravens RB suffered an ACL tear during pre-season that kept them out for the entire 2021 campaign.

Running Back

It's safe to say he won't be playing on Thursday as he is still on the PUP roster. RB Gus Edwards is still struggling with injury so he will not play.

Expect to see lots of Corey Clement, Mike Davis and Nate McCrary carrying rocks. The Titans have one of the best running defenders in the league in Derrick Henry,

But he was not expected to play last season. So that means Dontrell Hillard and rookie Hassan Haskins will get the lion's share.

Harbaugh didn't say one way or another about the playing status of a particular wide receiver on Thursday,

Which would suggest that some starters will get at least a drive or two in the game. Look forward to seeing Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche in first quarter or so.

The most exciting new WR coming to the Titans is Robert Woods. He played in camp but is still recovering from a season-end injury a year ago so it is unlikely he will play.

Ravens TE star Mark Andrews won't be taking any action, according to Harbaugh. Nick Boyle, Josh Oliver and TE rookie Isaiah are expected to get the majority of representation.
