Dueling expert picks for Cardinals vs. Titans in Week 1

By Jess Root

Week 1 is here and the Arizona Cardinals will take on the Tennessee Titans for their season opener.

The Titans are slight favorites in the game, playing in their home stadium and coming off an 11-5 season in which they went to the playoffs and won the AFC South.

They averaged more than 30 points a game last season.

The Cardinals just missed the postseason with an 8-8 2020 record. They bolstered their offense with Rodney Hudson, A.J. Green and James Conner, as well as adding J.J. Watt on defense.

It should be a fun, close game.

How will it play out?
