THE TEAM NEWS

TENNESSEE TITANS

  • Tennessee lost to New Orleans but the loss did not harm their play-off chances and a win here would see them make the post-season although divisional rivals Houston will not make it easy for them.
  • Titans running back Derrick Henry was inactive against the Saints last week as his team held him out for this must-win game in Week 17 and the powerful runner will be vital to Tennessee’s chances.
  • The Titans do have several injury doubts with wide receivers Adam Humphries and Kalif Raymond both struggling while cornerback Adoree’ Jackson is also questionable with a foot injury.

HOUSTON TEXANS

  • Houston took advantage of five turnovers by Tampa Bay to come out on top of that game and claim the AFC South title in the process with the Texans coming into this game with no pressure on them.
  • The Texans suffered a blow last week with wide receiver Will Fuller likely to miss up to three weeks with the groin injury he picked up in that game but Houston will be hopeful he can return sooner than anticipated.
  • With nothing on the line this week, the Texans could opt to hold some of their starters out of the game ahead of the play-offs next week but head coach Bill O’Brien has kept his cards close to his chest regarding the strength of the team he will select.

THE PREDICTION

Houston claimed the AFC South with their win last week and divisional rivals Tennessee will hope they can join them in the play-offs. The Titans will throw everything into this contest and, with the Texans potentially missing some of their starters as they rest up ahead of the play-offs, the road team should be able to take advantage and come out on top of this divisional contest to secure their own spot in the post-season.
