Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans: 3 bold predictions
3) Phillip Lindsay breaks the 100-yard barrier
With the offense for the Houston Texans virtually nonexistent, it’s not surprising that they haven’t had one of their five (now officially four) running backs have a 100-yard game this year. The closest was Mark Ingram’s 85-yard day against Jacksonville in Week 1, but he’s obviously no longer here.
The Titans have only given two 100-yard games, and those were to the Arizona Cardinals and the aforementioned Jacksonville Jaguars. That’s still a small sample size, but if the Jaguars can do it, why not Houston and Lindsay himself?
It may be one of the rare instances that the offensive line of the Houston Texans is not broken by the time the game starts. Lindsay’s 100-plus yards are the reason this game will be tied late until the third quarter.
Let’s pray for a relatively-empty injury report for Houston as they look to get their second win of the year. A revamped and rested offensive line will make all the difference.
