The Houston Texans will be going for their third consecutive win when they take on the Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon.
Titans Trying To Secure Playoff SpotThe Titans missed out on an opportunity to clinch a playoff spot last week when they lost to the New Orleans Saints, which gave them their second consecutive loss. Despite the loss, they still have a chance to make the playoffs thanks to Pittsburgh’s loss to New York in Week 16. They will be trying to snap their two-game losing streak and book a spot in the playoffs with a win over the Texans, which will give them their fifth win in their last seven games.
Tennessee has played well offensively, averaging 24.5 points per game. The team is averaging 224 passing yards per game and 131.9 rushing yards per game, which are 22nd and sixth respectively.
In their last game, they were held to 28 points at home by the Saints and will have to keep playing well offensively if they want to get past the Texans.
Ryan Tannehill led the Titans in passing with 272 yards and three touchdowns. Dion Lewis finished with 68 rushing yards, while Tajae Sharpe had five receptions for 69 yards and two touchdowns.
Tennessee has also played well defensively, holding opponents to 21.1 points per game. They have struggled in their last three games, giving up 27.6 points per game and will need to play better if they want to get the win.
Texans Going For Fifth Win In Six GamesThe Texans played well down the stretch, winning five of their last six games. Even though they have clinched a playoff spot, they will try to end their season on a positive note with a win over the Titans, which will give them their third win in a row and fifth win in their last six games.
Houston is a good offensive team, averaging 24.3 points per game. The team is averaging 239.4 passing yards per game and 126.7 rushing yards per game, which are both 10th in the league.
In their last game, they were held to 23 points by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and finished with 229 total yards. They will have to do a better job on the offensive end if they want to beat the Titans on Sunday.
Deshaun Watson led the Texans in passing with 184 yards and one interception. He also led the team with 37 rushing yards, while Kenny Stills had five receptions for 57 yards. Will Fuller V, who finished with two catches for 11 yards, suffered a groin injury and is unlikely to play in this game.
Houston has been inconsistent defensively, holding opponents to 23.3 points per game. They played well in their last game and forced five turnovers against the Bucs. They will need another big day from their defense to pull off the win on Sunday.
