Tennessee Titans Vs Houston Texans Game Day Preview
The Tennessee Titans control their own destiny but with five teams vying for four AFC playoff spots, there are no guarantees for the Titans. They control their own destiny as a WIN against the Texans secures a playoff spot for the Titans.
As for Houston, the goal is to simply get All-Pro quarterback Deshaun Watson through the season finale.
The Titans rank third in the NFL in points (450) and fifth in yards (5,851) behind the awesome foursome of quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Derrick Henry and receivers A.J. Brown and Corey Davis.
However, the team’s defense is extremely suspect and ranks 29th in yards allowed. If they are not careful they can be walking into a nightmare in Houston.
“We’ve got to focus on the Texans and the challenges that they present and our ability to prepare. I think you try to take from the games that you’ve played and past experiences and try not to think that it’s going to guarantee success because it doesn’t. Each week and each play doesn’t mean anything about the next one. It’s just about finding a way to get there.” Coach Mike Vrabel.
Deshaun Watson has taken a beating in recent weeks. Last Sunday Watson took a bad shot to his throwing arm against the Bengals. It was bad enough that speculation arouse on how Watson should sit out week 17.
Watson has made it clear that he wants to play!
“As far as I know, he’s doing pretty good,” Texans interim coach Romeo Crennel said. “I haven’t heard that he’s not doing well, and so since I feel like he’s doing good, I hope he does good on Sunday, too.”
