Offense: Matt Hasselbeck has played well for the Titans (95.9 passer rating 77.7 QBR) but he benefited greatly from injured star WR Kenny Britt (IR). Chris Johnson (3.0 yards per carry) is still an All-Pro RB and is on fresh wheels. The Texans have not been the same team without their best player healthy WR Andre Johnson (questionable, hamstring). Texans QB Matt Schaub has also struggled with All-Pro RB Arian Foster banged up. NFL Picks Week 7 Texans vs Titans Lines Total is at 44.0 points.
Defense: Houston will be missing their best player OLB Mario Williams (IR) who is worth 4-points on NFL lines. The Titans run D is playing physical under Mike Munchak but the pass D has been burned with suspect coverage. The Texans have a bend but don’t break defense that can be torched through the air or ground but tightens up in the red-zone.
Special Teams: One of the few bright spots for the Texans of late with a top-10 unit. Tennessee has major issues in the kicking game.
Coaching: The Titans 1st year head coach Mike Munchak is a notch better than the Texans Gary Kubiak’s group that is not sure of their team’s identity.
