Titans vs Texans Week 8 Game Info
AFC South rivals meet head-to-head in Week 8 as the Tennessee Titans travel to take on the Houston Texans. Tennessee is coming off a commanding 19-10 win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7. A 76-yard pick-six by safety Andrew Adams put the Titans ahead for good early in the second quarter.
Meanwhile, the Texans couldn't buy a stop on defense during a 38-20 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday. Quarterback Davis Mills played well, though, logging 302 yards, 2 touchdowns and 1 interception on 28-of-41 passing. It was the second-year pro's first 300-yard game of the season.

Titans vs Texans Prediction & Pick
It doesn't seem like head coach Mike Vrabel is getting enough credit for what he is doing down in Tennessee. The Titans are in the driver's seat in the AFC South once again after a season sweep of the Colts. A third straight division title in well within reach if they can keep gaining weekly momentum.
That momentum shouldn't be too hard to gain on Sunday. Tennessee is 10-1 straight up in its last 11 games against an AFC South opponent and 4-1 straight up in its last five games against Houston. The Texans don't have enough talent on defense to stop running back Derrick Henry from balling out.
Final Score Prediction: Titans: 27 | Texans: 17

Bettors can feel comfortable backing the Titans here, especially with a spread set at under a field goal. Each of Tennessee's last eight wins against the Texans have come by three points or more. Vrabel's squad is also 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last five games. Talk about heating up.
Houston has posted the worst rush defense DVOA rating in the NFL and is allowing a whopping 164.7 yards on the ground per game (No. 32 in NFL). Henry has torched the Texans' defense for 673 rushing yards and 7 touchdowns in his last three games against them. That's a recipe for a Titans blowout W.
