In a game from Week 4 of the NFL, we will see the teams of Tennessee Titans at Houston Texans on Sunday at NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas.
Houston Texans were embarrassed last Thursday night on National TV when they lost to the third-string quarterback of the Patriots 27-0. I still believe they can win this game but it won’t come easy. Houston announced that J.J. Watt probably won’t play for the remainder of the season and this is a big hit for their playoff hopes. They lost the best defensive end in the game and there won’t be as many sacks as we used to see in the previous years. Houston allowed 73 yards rushing in the win over the Bears but gave up more against the Chiefs and it was an appalling performance against the Patriots where they gave up 185 yards. These are not the numbers you want to see when you are going to face Titans’ running back DeMarco Murray who might go over 100 on Sunday.
Even without Watt, I think this Houston defense has what it takes to keep the Titans relatively quiet and Texans’ offense is not very promising, so I predict that this game will have under 40.5 points.
