The Texans have had all sorts of luck of late against the Titans, including winning and covered three of the last four meetings. The one exception was a Week 17 game that meant zip whatsoever to Houston, and we aren’t going to count that against it. The question though, is whether either of these teams reasonably put their best foot forward last week and whether the results from Week 1 were legit. Is Tennessee really good enough to go on the road and beat playoff caliber teams in the AFC? Or were the Steelers just lackluster and old? Were the Texans as good as their second half performance in San Diego? Or are they going to struggle at times on both sides of the ball all year long?
The end result that we are going to come up with in this one is the blanket statement of “both.” We aren’t believers that the Titans are regularly going to go on the road this year and win, but we do think that they are a much improved team. They are going to have a tougher time running the ball in this one though, and that could make things sticky to say the least. Remember that the Texans’ defense was a lot better than four TD passes to QB Philip Rivers really indicates last week thanks to some turnovers in the first half. Houston isn’t as good as that second half showed, but it isn’t as bad as the first half showed either. The Texans winning this game by a touchdown seems to be a deserved result, and if that’s the case, we want the points on our side.
