To end a wild Week 12 of NFL action, we turn to Houston, Texas to see if the Texans will continue their winning streak against the Tennessee Titans. The Texans have won seven games in a row since losing their opening three games of the season, and are in first place in the AFC South. This will be the second time that the teams will meet this year, their first game was in Week 2, which went to the Titans 20-17, but, a lot has changed since then, and the Texans are on a roll.
The Titans are 5-5 and are coming off of a loss to the Colts last week which was a blowout. Let's not forget that the Titans did beat the Patriots the week prior, 34-10 so they can still do a lot of damage if and when they are on their game.
Who wins at prime time?
The Texans are poised to take a big lead over the rest of the competition in the AFC South, and at the mid-season point, it will put them in a good position for the playoff push towards the end. With both the Colts and the Titans right on their tails, tonight's Monday Night matchup is crucial for the Texans, but even more so for the Titans, if they wish to make their end playoff push.
