Tennessee Titans (1-0) at Houston Texans (1-0)
This is the first time in the ’13 season that two AFC South teams will face one another in divisional play.

Both teams won their season openers with the Titans defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers by a 16-9 score and the Texans topping the San Diego Chargers 31-28 with a last-second field goal, capping off a comeback of 24 consecutive points for the victory on Monday Night Football.

I believe this game will come do to who has the best rushing game between Arian Foster and Chris Johnson. I previewed their matchup in a column here, and with two running backs of their caliber playing against very good defensive players, it will be interesting to see who out-rushes who in this game.

Both have big-time players of the defense side to watch for with the Texans having JJ Watt at defensive end and the Titans having Zach Brown at linebacker. Those are the two players to watch during the game on the defensive side of the ball.

Another thing to watch out for is how the Titans defend Andre Johnson following his 146-yard, 12 reception week one game against the Chargers. Can the Titans hold him to less yardage? My thought is he might not have as many yards, but he could score a touchdown in this game, something he didn’t have in week one.

I’ll wrote more about this matchup throughout the week. This game is set to kickoff at 1 p.m. EST.
