Titans and Texans preview
The undefeated Tennessee Titans sit atop not only the AFC South but also the AFC with an impressive 4-0 record. After coming off a Tuesday night victory against the Buffalo Bills, the Titans will look to take a sizable lead in the division against rival Houston Texans.
The game kicks off at 12:00 P.M. CT on CBS at Nissan Stadium, although I say that tentatively considering what has happened in the NFL over the last two weeks.
The Texans are coming off their first victory after a rough 0-4 start to the season. After firing head coach Bill O’Brien, the Texans were able to get their first victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars and will look to set their season on track against the Titans.
Tennessee, missing many of their starters due to the COVID-19 outbreak within the team, showed a lot of fight and promise against elite competition in a 42-16 drumming of the Bills. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill looked electric with three passing touchdowns and one rushing touchdown. The Titans fielded only three healthy receivers and still had a strong aerial attack to keep the Bills on their toes the entire game.
The Titans will look to take a three-game lead over the rest of the division and nearly squash the Texans playoff hopes. The Texans, behind quarterback Deshaun Watson, are always in the mix and have a manageable schedule down the stretch.
