Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans Preview and Predictions

Michael SchotteyNFL National Lead WriterJanuary 1, 2017

The Houston Texans and the team that used to inhabit Houston face off in Week 13 as the Tennessee Titans look to deal with J.J. Watt and company and play the role of speed bump en route to a Houston playoff run.

The Texans (10-1) are first in the AFC South and the class of the AFC in 2012 as the traditional powers have all taken a step back and the NFC has moved ahead in the battle of the two conferences. Arian Foster continues to be a force out of the backfield and the Matt Schaub-Andre Johnson connection is still as money as ever. Wade Phillips' pressure defense is the difference-maker this year, however, as Watt and company have become a thorn in nearly every quarterbacks' side whom they've faced.

The Titans (4-7) were thought to be darkhorse candidates to compete in the division this year as many figured the Colts' rebuild would take a little longer and no one expected the Texans to be quite this dominant. Still, even if someone wasn't quite that bullish on the Titans' chances, it's still hard to call them anything but a disappointment this year and calls for Mike Munchak's head have been ramping up.

So, who wins in Week 13?
