Texans vs. Titans: 3 Key players to watch in Week 6
Which Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans players should we be watching in Week 6?
The Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans a just a couple days away from their first meeting against each other this season, and the matchup does have some interesting aspects to it.
Tennessee is undefeated at 4-0 overall this season and has missed a game (that will be made up) due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. The Titans also just played a game on Tuesday night, so the quick turnaround will be interesting to watch.
As for the Houston Texans, they are coming off their first win of the 2020 season by defeating the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday, which was their first game without Bill O’Brien as their head coach after his firing over a week ago. Things seemed to be in order though with Romeo Crennel calling the shots as the interim head coach, but this franchise also needs to keep moving forward and not rest on the fact their only win this season has been against the one-win Jaguars.
What has been interesting going into this game is the excitement the players and personnel seem to have since that win — and since they got a new boss.
The Texans going into this Week 6 game against the Titans do have some players that will be key to this win, especially on defense for the Houston Texans, as they are having to replace all the snaps by inside linebacker Benardrick McKinney, who is out for the season after shoulder surgery.
Replacements at inside linebacker are going to be very important for the Houston Texans and players all over the defense for the rest of the season because no matter how much the offense improves, the defense of the Texans, when facing tougher competition than the Jaguars, will have to be at their best.
Next are three players who will be key for both the Houston Texans and Titans in Week 6 for their respective teams to gain victory.
