If the Tennessee Titans end their three game losing streak, they will do it in front of a national audience on Monday Night Football.

The Titans are in Dallas to meet the Cowboys in a battle of 3-4 teams that both desperately need a win.

The Titans offense has cratered as they have lost three in a row to the Bills, Ravens and Chargers. There were signs of life in London as they rushed for 164 yards and Tajae Sharpe topped 100 yards receiving against the Chargers.

In Dallas, though they face one of the elite defenses in the league. The Cowboys are second in points allowed and second in red zone defense where they trail only the Titans.

The Titans may be looking to build on the rush attack they unleashed before the Bye week by adding fullback Jalston Fowler. Marcus Mariota was the top-ranked “play action” quarterback in the NFL in 2017. Returning the Titans run game to prominence could be just the trick to get the pass game going.

Dallas has also struggled offensively. While the Titans are 30th in yards the Boys are 29th. Dallas made a drastic move last week though sending a first-round pick to Oakland for receiver Amari Cooper in hopes of getting Dak Prescott the steady target he desperately needs.

The Cowboy offense still starts with Ezekiel Elliott though, who enters the weekend second in the NFL with over 600 yards rushing. The Titans stifled the Chargers two weeks ago and need to continue that trend against a Dallas team that also fired its offensive line coach in the Bye week.

One injury to watch for the Titans is receiver Corey Davis who tweaked his hamstring in practice Wednesday.
