The Texans will get to close out the season at home against Tennessee.
It was a disappointing outing for the Texans on Sunday, missing plenty of opportunities to pull away from the San Francisco 49ers, dropping their 12th game on the season. However, their next opponent is a legitimate Super Bowl contender in the Tennessee Titans. Currently holding the AFC’s first seed, they can secure a first-round bye if they win against Houston.
There are also two other scenarios that they can clinch through, which are covered here. First, the last time these two faced off, Lovie Smith cascaded pressure onto Ryan Tannehill, which baited him into bad a day on the field as he was intercepted four times by the Texans en-route to an upset victory.
That most likely was a bad day for the Titans, as they have now been performing so well without Derrick Henry that they’ve gotten to the top seed for a reason.
