The Houston Texans face the Tennessee Titans in Nashville on Sunday, and here is how to watch.
Can the Houston Texans win in consecutive weeks for the first time this season, or will the Tennessee Titans keep their undefeated record i-tact and move to 5-0 overall on Sunday in Nashville?
The Titans enter this game following a bout with COVID-19 and delays in their schedule as they just played this past Tuesday when they defeated the Buffalo Bills in a rescheduled game by a 42-16 score. Before that, the Titans have defeated the Denver Broncos (16-14), Jacksonville Jaguars (33-30) and the Minnesota Vikings (31-30).
Though the Texans and Titans have two common opponents thus far this season, and the Titans defeated the Jaguars and the Vikings by a combined four points, the Texans lost to Minnesota when under Bill O’Brien in Week 4, and the Houston Texans defeated the Jaguars by a 30-14 score last Sunday for their first win of the 2020 NFL season.
One part of this game that should draw interest is the play of the two quarterbacks with the Houston Texans having Deshaun Watson and the Titans having Ryan Tannehill, who since joining Tennessee has really restructured his career.
Watson with the Houston Texans this season has started the first five games and in that span of games has completed 66.9 percent of his passes for 1,451 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions. Watson hasn’t played perfect this season, but he’s the biggest part of the Texans offense and team in general.
With Tim Kelly completely calling the shots for the first time without Bill O’Brien overseeing things, Watson last Sunday vs. Jacksonville was 25-of-35 for 359 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. On the plus side, he was sacked just once in Week 5, but for the season Watson has been sacked 17 times.
In the past four times he’s faced the Tennessee Titans, Watson is averaging 262 yards per game passing with 2.5 touchdown passes and one interception according to stats on Pro-Football Reference. Also, his average passing numbers are 21-of-29 in the past four games facing Tennessee.
Looking the the 2020 season of Tannehill his completed 68.9 percent of his passes this season with 1,004 yards passing with nine touchdowns and one interception. This past Tuesday vs. Buffalo, Tannehill was 21-of-28 for 195 yards passing with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Tannehill has been sacked just three times this season, and he wasn’t sacked by Buffalo.
