Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans Preview & Predictions

Michael SchotteyNFL National Lead WriterJanuary 1, 2017

AFC South rivals face off in NFL Week 4 as the Tennessee Titans head to Houston to take on the Texans.

Tennessee (1-2) is coming off of a big overtime win against the Detroit Lions and are searching for an identity in the Jake Locker era. Chris Johnson was improved in Week 3, but he doesn't necessarily look like he's going to be able to shoulder any sort of load going forward. The Titans lived and died by the big play against Detroit and needed a huge contribution from their special teams to keep pace. They'll need to be at their best against a very good Texans team.

The Texans (3-0) look like the class of the AFC in 2012 and have matched a fantastic offense with an even better defense. J.J. Watt is putting together an All Pro season in Wade Phillips' second year and the unit as a whole has made scoring a chore for opponents. On offense, Arian Foster has gotten plenty of help as Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson have been healthy. They can't look past the Titans in this divisional game, but if the Texans fire on all cylinders, they should win easily.
