The Houston Texans will play the Tennessee Titans on Saturday afternoon at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Houston Texans are 1-12-1 this season after they lost to Kansas City in overtime by a score of 30-24 in their last game. Houston only gained 219 total yards and allowed Kansas City to gain 502 yards of offense. The Houston offense is averaging 16.8 points per game with 188.2 passing yards per game and 90.2 rushing yards per game. Houston will split reps at quarterback between Davis Mills and Jeff Driskel this week, just like they did last week. Dameon Pierce has rushed for 939 yards and four touchdowns, while Brandin Cooks has caught 44 passes for 520 yards and one score for Houston. The Houston defense is giving up 24.6 points per game and 388.9 yards per game.

The Tennessee Titans are 7-7 this season after they lost to the Los Angeles Chargers by a score of 17-14 in their last game. Tennessee was out gained by a total of 365-284 and only went 3-11 on third down attempts in the loss. The Tennessee offense is averaging 18.2 points per game with 174.4 passing yards per game and 121.6 rushing yards per game. Malik Willis will get the start for Tennessee with the injury to Tannehill. Willis has thrown for 177 yards and one interception in seven games for the Titans this season. Derrick Henry has rushed for 1,303 yards and 12 scores, while Robert Woods has caught 40 passes for 418 yards and one touchdown for Tennessee. The Tennessee defense is allowing 20.9 points per game and 365 yards per game.

Houston is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against the AFC South and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Week 16 games. The under is 10-4 in Houston’s last 14 road games. Tennessee is 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against the AFC South. The under is 9-2 in Tennessee’s last 11 home games. The under is 5-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Tennessee.

Tennessee comes into this game with some serious questions at quarterback, as Malik Willis tries to find his first touchdown of the season. Houston has played well in their last two games, nearly beating Dallas and Kansas City. The Houston defense has been a weakness this season, but I don’t think the Titans will be able to exploit it without Tannehill. I like Houston here.
