Texans to cap 2020 w/ home game vs. Titans | Daily Brew

The 2020 season comes to an end for Houston on Sunday at NRG Stadium versus Tennessee.

The Titans (10-5) come to town to face the Texans (4-11), and kickoff is set for 3:25 p.m. CT. Tennessee won in overtime when the two squads squared off in Nashville on October 18. All-time, Houston is 10-8 at home against the Titans. Last season, when the Texans rested quarterback Deshaun Watson and multiple starters after clinching the AFC South title the week before, Tennessee won for the first time in NRG Stadium since the 2011 season. That 2011 victory for the Titans also came in Week 17, when the Texans were resting multiple starters for the playoffs.

Despite the differences in records, interim head coach Romeo Crennel explained why the rumble between AFC South rivals will be exciting.

"It has meaning because it's a division game for us," Crennel said. "That's why it has the most meaning. We have the pride of trying to win a game versus a division opponent. That's what we're going to try to do."

The two times Watson has played against the Titans at home, the Texans put a combined 91 points on the scoreboard in a pair of double-digit victories. In those 2017 and 2018 contests, combined, he completed 75.8 percent of his passes for 493 yards, with six touchdowns through the air, and another two on the ground.

It's also Fan Appreciation Day this Sunday. Five lucky season ticket members will have a chance to win a $1,000 gift card to H-E-B, a Reliant Smart Home package, a Texas Mattress Queen Set courtesy of Mattress Firm, two roundtrip tickets courtesy of United Airlines, or an iPad and Apple Watch courtesy of Xfinity.

Former Texans safety Andre Hal will be the Homefield Advantage Team Captain, and Houston will wear it's Deep Steel Blue jerseys with Deep Steel Blue pants.
