Titans vs Texans Preview
The Titans have lost two straight to fall to 8-7. Still, they can clinch a playoff spot with a victory over the Texans.
They can also advance to the postseason with a tie and a Pittsburgh Steelers loss or tie against the Baltimore Ravens. Should Tennessee fall to the Texans, they can still reach the postseason if the Steelers lose and the Indianapolis Colts fall to or tie the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“The focus and the mentality is that now we’re playing playoff games,” Titans head coach Mike Vrabel said this week, according to The Associated Press. “When you win in the playoffs, you go find another game. When you lose, your season’s over. So, that’s really the mindset that we have to take and the approach that we have to take.”
The Titans are 6-3 since Vrabel inserted quarterback Ryan Tannehill into the starting lineup in place of Marcus Mariota.
Last week, Tannehill hit on 17 of 27 passes for 272 yards and 3 touchdowns without turning the ball over in a 38-28 home loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Across nine starts, the 31-year-old has completed 70% of his passes for 2,400 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions.
“This team wants to win and we definitely want to get into the postseason, so obviously, we were just saying how crucial this game is,” Tennessee quarterback Ryan Tannehill said, per AP. “The onus is on us to go out and play well.”
The Texans bested the Titans 24-21 in Week 15 behind a 104-yard rushing day from running back Carlos Hyde.
“There’s a lot of things that are going to be similar,” Vrabel said, per AP. “I’m sure that there’ll be a few game plan things that both of us have that we’ll have to make adjustments on when we see them in the game.”
Last week, the Texans edged the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 23-20 on the road to clinch their fourth AFC South title in four seasons. They can go from the No. 4 seed to the No. 3 seed in the playoffs with a win and a Kansas City Chiefs loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.
“I think that we’ve got to be ready to go and we’ve got to play the game to win, because it’s a very important game, it’s a division rival,” Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said Monday, according to the team’s official website. “We know that we’re in the playoffs, we know that Tennessee has to win to get in the playoffs and we need to go out there and be ready to go and play this game to win. So, I think that’s the most important thing this week.”
