Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans: 3 match-ups to watch
The Houston Texans need their key players to come through in week four.
I’ve already pointed out who I believe is the x-factor for the Houston Texans as they get ready to face the Tennessee Titans.
Now i’ve come up with three match-ups to keep your eye on this Sunday.
Jadeveon Clown vs. Taylor Lewan
Texans’ pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney wreaked havoc on the New England Patriots last week with six tackles and two sacks. He also ended up with a touchdown off of a fumble recovery.
With J.J. Watt much quieter this season when it comes to putting up big stats, if Clowney can have another big game, it should lead to a win for the Texans.
Clowney have his work cut out for him against Titans’ left tackle Taylor Lewan. This should be a very good match-up.
Chris Clark vs. Derrick Morgan
Titans’ pass rusher Derrick Morgan could give Texans’ left tackle Chris Clark some problems on Sunday afternoon at NRG Stadium.
Morgan already has two sacks in three games this season and recorded nine total sacks during the 2016 season.
Tennessee’s pass defense is ranked 30th in the NFL, so they need Morgan to take advantage of Clark and get after rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson.

DeAndre Hopkins vs. Logan Ryan
Logan Ryan was a pretty good cornerback during his time with the New England Patriots. He will have quite a test this week against Houston receiver DeAndre Hopkins.
Hopkins is clearly Watson’s favorite target and the veteran receiver has been coming through big for the Texans so far this season.
