Why Houston Texans Will Win
It might seem a bit too rah-rah, but will JJ Watt’s comments do anything to motivate a team playing out the string?
The Texans couldn’t get by Cincinnati last week, but outside of not showing p against Chicago, the team has been close over the last month but with no breaks whatsoever.
The pressure is all on the Tennessee side. The Titan pass defense is lousy – everyone’s bombing away on this group – and for all the problems, Houston is hitting a whole lot of deep passes. The Texans lead the NFL in yards per attempt and Deshaun Watson continues to be brilliant ant taking care of the ball, but …
Why Tennessee Titans Will Win
The Houston defense just doesn’t take the ball away.
The Texan offense really is working just fine – there was even a ground attack against Cincinnati – but the defensive side is getting destroyed. There hasn’t been a takeaway in a month.
The team has gone seven of the last nine games without forcing a turnover, and the Titans have the offensive balance to take over right away and keep on going without worry of making a big mistake.
If Cincinnati can put up 540 yards of total offense, look out.
What’s Going To Happen
Tennessee can’t blow this.
It’s in the playoffs with a win, and it’s almost certainly going to be in with a loss – a Baltimore loss to Cincinnati or Miami loss to Buffalo would do it no matter what.
There won’t be any worries. Houston will make it a fun and will shootout, but the defense won’t have a prayer as the Titan offensive balance takes over in the second quarter. Derrick Henry will be Derrick Henry, but it’ll be Ryan Tannehill who dominates with a terrific day with both his legs as well as his arm.
