Bet on the NFL In a battle for the AFC South, the 3rd place Houston Texans hit the road to Tennessee to take on the fourth place Titans in Week 15.
The Houston Texans travel to Nashville to take on their AFC South rivals the Tennessee Titans December 19th in a game that now has little impact on the NFL Playoff betting. The Tennessee Titans were on top off the world six games ago. Randy Moss was on his way to the team and they were optimistic they could take down the number one seed in the AFC. In the interim the Tennessee Titans have fallen on hard times.
Their record plummeted from 5-2 to 5-8 and now they enter week 15 with nothing to play for with the exception of respect.
The Houston Texans defense has been improving but they still have struggled against the pass in key situations. At one time the Houston Texans defense was allowing over 300 yards per game through the air but they have put the clamps on their corners and have improved to 285 yards per game. Run defense is not an issue for this team. For sports betting fans, they should know that they are yielding 100 yards per game and have been solid up front under the leadership of Mario Williams.
Quarterback issues have changed the style of the Tennessee Titans over the last few weeks and now it is time to for Chris Johnson and this big time run offense to flex it's collective muscle. Johnson ran wild in the game against the Indianapolis Colts and they fell just short of beating Peyton Manning and his resurgent Colts offense.
Randy Moss has disappeared on this team and the Tennessee Titans offense has refused to use him in deep ball situations and critical third down spots. The Tennessee Titans offense has the edge over the Houston Texans defense.
The Tennessee Titans defense has dropped a few notches as the season has worn on. It may be because the offense has fallen off the map and the defense has been left on the field with little rest over the last six games. Jason Babin has been the one shining light of consistency on this front line defense. The secondary for the Tennessee Titans ranks below average and if Courtland Finnegan backed up his words with solid secondary play Tennessee might be in better shape.
