Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans: Week 2 Staff Predictions, 2013

Tennessee Titans 24, Houston Texans 34

The Titans will have their hands full this week going up against a Houston team that rallied to come back from a 21-point deficit against the Chargers in Week 1.  The Titans and Texans should feel good about themselves after coming off strong wins against their respective opponents.

The Titans imposed their will on the Pittsburgh Steelers. I have a hard time seeing them doing the same things against the Texans. The Texans are surrounded with playmakers who are capable of putting up outrageous numbers.  If the Titans are going to win this game, they must slow down the Texans offense and control the football.

We did see great things from the Titans in Week 1. It was only one week. They need to prove they can be consistent with their identity before they can be expected to compete with elite talent.

(Titans 0, Texans 2)

    It’s tempting for me to be a homer early in the season and always pick the Titans, but I’m going to be realistic. Last week I picked the Titans because I see them as being on the upswing and Pittsburgh being on the downswing. I felt the Titans would be able to play ball control and that the D-Line would rule the day.
    I believe it will be a similar game plan with Houston. The Titans will be patient and pound the ball; but that won’t be enough. Jake Locker will be required to make more plays this week than he is capable of. He’ll get picked off, I’m afraid, at least once for a score. The short passing game is just not sound enough to compliment the running game. I’m hopeful this will improve as well as the play action game. With the Titans speed and potential on O-Line they should develop into a good screen team which will help Locker shore up his passing stats and confidence; but that will come more mid season. This week: Titans 17 Texans 24
