The Tennessee Titans look to hold onto their division lead when they face off against rival Houston Texans in Week 8. The Titans are coming off a massive victory on Sunday over the Colts that expanded their lead in the AFC South. The win gave them a season sweep of the Colts should the division come down to a tiebreaker. On the other hand, the Texans got beaten down by the Raiders 38-20 in their previous outing.
Let’s check the latest NFL odds, stats, injury reports, and NFL lines for Titans vs Texans. We’ve plenty of Vegas NFL odds for you to consider.
The Titans look like contenders again after a rough 0-2 start with a 4-0 run in the previous four weeks. Props to Mike Vrabel for righting this ship after it nearly ran aground in the first couple of weeks.
It helps when you have the most talented runner in the game with Derrick Henry. He ripped off a 128-yard game last week and is rounding into form at the right moment. It’s only a matter of time before he goes over 200 in a game. This is a massive problem for a Texans defense that ranks 29th in opponent yards per rush and allows the most rushing yards per game (164.7).
The Texans are not without weapons to fight back with, thanks to a dynamic back of their own in Dameon Pierce. The rookie has been the center of attention for this offense and ranks in the top 8 in attempts (106) and yards (504). He only has three touchdowns, and no other Texan has one on the ground.
The Texans are a rather one-dimensional offense with Piece due in part to David Mills under center. Mills ranks outside the top 20 in yards (1,350), interceptions (5), and a QBR (36.2). Nico Collins is their leading receiver, with a mere 305 yards through seven weeks.

Titans vs Texans Prediction
The oddsmakers, and many handicappers, think this game is going to be challenging for Tennessee. The spread is just 2.5 points despite the Texans being pegged as one of the worst teams in the NFL. But their defense just does not match up well against the Titans’ rushing attack, and Houston’s offense isn’t good enough to make up for it. Some may see a letdown game after a big division win, but we see the Titans running all over this makeshift Texans defense.
