The Houston Texans (7-7) will travel to Tennessee for their final regular season road game of the year against the Titans (3-11) on Sunday. Kickoff is scheduled for noon CT at Nissan Stadium.
Houston has an opportunity to clinch the AFC South Division this weekend with three different scenarios. With a win over the Titans and a Colts loss to the Dolphins, the Texans would earn their third division title in franchise history. They could also clinch with a win, while earning the strength of victory tiebreaker over Indianapolis. Finally, Houston could seal the division with a tie and a Colts loss in Week 16.
Last week, the Texans won their first road game against the Colts in franchise history by a score of 16-10. The defense held Indianapolis to 190 total net yards (140 passing, 50 rushing), 14 first downs and 26:04 time of possession in the contest. Offensively, QB Brandon Weeden entered the game in the second quarter after QB T.J. Yates left due to injury. Weeden led the Texans to four scoring drives in the final seven possessions and threw the game-winning fourth quarter touchdown pass to WR Jaelen Strong.
The Titans lost their second straight game last week to the New England Patriots, 33-16. QB Marcus Mariota completed 3-of-6 passes for 32 yards before exiting the game due to injury. QB Zach Mettenberger came in and finished 20-of-28 for 242 yards, two touchdowns, two interceptions and a 91.7 passer rating. WR Dorial Green-Beckham led the team with six receptions for 113 yards, as he topped 100 receiving yards for the second time in the last three games.
The Texans hold a 12-15 all-time regular season record against the Titans, including a 5-8 mark on the road. Houston has won the last three matchups in the series, which is tied for the longest winning streak against Tennessee in team history.
