The Houston Texans face the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football and a win against the Titans is very important as the season progresses.
Here is the deal with the Houston Texans, the seven-game winning streak has been great to watch after such a terrible start by the franchise in 2018. The wins have been nerve-wracking and full of excitement, but in the past seven games the Texans have got the job done once the final whistle has blown and in the NFL that is what is important.
The Texans are in first place in the AFC South and have a one-game lead going into their Monday Night Football game against their division rival, the Tennessee Titans. That is great, but now comes the tough part, seven straight wins isn’t enough, but winning an eighth straight game will makes things much smoother for the remainder of the season.

Houston needs a win against the Titans this Monday night for them to really feel comfortable with their position in the AFC South.
The Texans can’t let the Titans gain the season sweep against them this season, so if you want to say the game against the Titans on Monday night is a “must-win,” it is, in a way to avoid a possible tiebreakers at the end of the season going in favor of the Titans.
Plus, if Deshaun Watson and the rest of the Texans can have a two-game lead over the second place team in the division with five weeks remaining, that would be very helpful too for Houston in their pursuit of the playoffs as they still have the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars left on their schedule too.
Being the Texans and Titans are on the national stage this upcoming Monday, look for the Texans to have a certain edge to them. If you remember in Week 2, the feeling after that loss wasn’t the best for the Texans. It is doubtful they have forgot how that game went for them and it must be known they want to avenge a loss from a game they let get away from them in the first quarter.
In the Monday Night Football game, the Texans need to win for comfort purposes in the standings. Look for them to play at possibly their highest level to date, as there is no way this team with the seven straight wins is going to go down without a fight against their division rival.
