Bet on the NFL Houston hosts the Tennessee Titans this weekend in Week 12 of the 2010 NFL season. The Tennessee Titans return to their birthplace November 28th to take on the team that replaced them in Houston, the Houston Texans.
Vince Young has been inconsistent as the quarterback for the Tennessee Titans and there has been a definite indecisiveness on Jeff Fisher's part in regards to the quarterback position.
The Houston Texans have struggled all season on both sides of the ball. The optimism that grew from their opening game trouncing of the Indianapolis Colts has quickly been erased. Their defense has given up big plays at key moments and the offense is lacking the explosiveness of last season. The Houston Texans defense folded like cheap tents on the New York Jets final 50 second drive at the end of their last game and that loss may be a tough one to put behind them.
When Randy Moss arrived in Tennessee there was unbridled optimism from all involved. The Titans then promptly went out and lost to the Miami Dolphins and Moss only had one catch for seven yards. The focus of this offense should still be a ground and pound offense featuring star running back Chris Johnson.
Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young has now been benched by coach Jeff Fisher for his tirades and rantings at the end of the Tennessee Titans loss to the Washington Redskins.
The new Tennessee Titans quarterback will be rookie Rusty Smith and suddenly the Tennessee Titans have gone from contenders to pretenders in the span of just two games, confusing sportsbook odds makers. This may give gamblers a winning advantage this weekend. Randy Moss has played with this team for two games. Take from that what you will.
The Houston Texans defense has struggled to put it mildly. They are second in the NFL in most total yards given up and they are the only team in the NFL that is giving up more than 300 yards passing per game. This is actually an improvement over their previous average of over 325 yards given up per game.
