The Tennessee Titans will be looking to continue its winning ways this Sunday when the Texans come to down, while Houston is still figuring things out.
It’s safe to say that the Tennessee Titans proved that they are contenders in their routing of the Buffalo Bills. That doesn’t mean that they won’t lose to the Texans, but the Titans have a chance to continue proving their worth with a win against their division rival.
Sunday’s game can go two ways for the Titans. They could lose to the Texans and immediately be discredited as a contender and what they’ve done this season so far, or they could beat a bad team as they should and continue to prove that they’re a threat to the Chiefs and Ravens.
If the Titans do win, don’t expect the national media to come running to the Titans because they still aren’t ready for a dominant Titans team. It’s not like a win against a 1-4 team would get them to cover the Titans anyways. Unless the Titans blowout their opponent for the second game in a row.
The Titans are only 3.5-point favorites at home. That means that Las Vegas is expecting this game to be close and likely finish within a three-point margin. Taking care of business and blowing out Houston could get a few people’s attention after the Titans blew out the Bills.
This game is circled by many as a potential trap game after the Texans had a terrible start to the season. The Texans are now 1-0 after firing head coach Bill O’Brien after starting the season 0-4, so Houston could have some new energy to them with a new leader in the locker room.
The Titans and Texans kick off at noon CT at Nissan Stadium as the Titans will play its second game of the season in front of Titans fans.
