There are reasons for optimism and concern for the Tennessee Titans against the Houston Texans in Week 15.
The Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans will meet in Week 15 at Nissan Stadium to determine who sits in first place going into the final two weeks of the regular season.
Both teams are 8-5, and the Texans own the tiebreaker at the moment with a better divisional record. Whoever wins this week will sit atop the division alone with a two-game lead, as head-to-head is the first tiebreaker in deciding a division winner.
The Texans come into this contest having had a roller coaster ride the last four weeks. Wins against the New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts are sandwiched in between two blowout losses to the Baltimore Ravens and Denver Broncos. Houston is a tough team to figure out right now.
Meanwhile, the Titans are storming into this Week 15 showdown as one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now, having scored 30 points or more in each of their last four games, and 31.4 points per game since since Week 7, the second-most in the league.
The arrow is certainly pointing up for the Titans right and there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic moving forward, but there are still some things they have to be concerned with going into this game with the Texans.
