The Houston Texans need a win after losing four of their last six games. Brian Hoyer is completing 58.9 percent of his passes for 1,346 yards, 11 touchdowns and three interceptions. Hoyer has six touchdown passes in his last two games. DeAndre Hopkins and Nate Washington have combined for 1,113 yards and seven touchdowns while Cecil Shorts III has 26 receptions. The Houston Texans ground game is averaging 92.4 yards per contest, and Alfred Blue leads the way with 234 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Houston is allowing 28.4 points and 370.9 yards per game. Brian Cushing leads the Texans with 56 tackles, J.J. Watt has six sacks and Johnathan Joseph has eight pass deflections. Derek Newton and Brandon Brooks are questionable while Akeem Dent is out.
The Titans are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games and 6-19-2 ATS in their last 27 games overall. The Texans are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 home games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Titans are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Houston and 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings overall.
A battle between two of the worst teams in the league should always be considered a toss-up. However, Hoyer has had some decent success recently and the home crowd has to count for something. I'll take Houston by a touchdown, but this game could truly go either way.
