After starting the season 0-2, the Tennessee Titans have flipped the script and won six of their last seven games and now in Week 11, head into a Thursday Night Football Matchup with the Green Bay Packers.

Jeffery Simmons Injury Update

The Packers are coming off a win in Week 10, after five consecutive losses. The Titans got some great news ahead of this matchup, defensive tackle Jeffery Simmons is expected to play. Simmons missed the Titans' Week 10 win over the Broncos.

Simmons is a huge piece added back to the defense as one of the best lineman in the league, who is also in the midst of another great season. Simmons already has 30 tackles, 5.5 sacks, 6 tackles for loss and 9 QB hits in eight games of action this year.

His presence brings this defense to a whole other level and should give both Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones fits all night.

The Titans are currently 3.5 road underdogs at Lambeau Field against the Packers in Week 11, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
