The Tennessee Titans (4-0) take on the Houston Texans (1-4) on Sunday, the team’s second divisional matchup of the season. The Titans come in red hot, and they’re healthier than they’ve been in a long time, minus the absences of wide receiver Corey Davis and cornerback Adoree’ Jackson.
The Texans are looking to string together wins for the first time this year after a brutal stretch to begin the season. In weeks 1 to 3, the Texans faced the Kansas City Chiefs, Baltimore Ravens, and Pittsburgh Steelers, who own a combined record of 12-2. Are the Texans bad, or just not as good as those teams?
I’d wager that they are better after the departure of trainwreck head coach/general manager Bill O’Brien, but still not on the Titans’ level. The Texans have been a thorn in the side of the two-tone blue for years, especially with quarterback Deshaun Watson under center.
But, with wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins now in Arizona, the days of the miraculous scramble until Nuk is open are over. The Titans get it done at home.
Final score: Titans 31, Texans 21
