There’s no line as of this writing at our online sportsbook for Sunday’s matchup due to the iffy status of Titans QB Marcus Mariota.

Last Season

These teams split last year, each winning at home. The Texans rolled 57-14 in Week 4. Deshaun Watson threw four TD passes and rushed for one. He became the first rookie to throw four touchdowns and run for another one since Fran Tarkenton in 1961 and tied an NFL record for most TDs by a rookie quarterback. It was a franchise record in points scored. Titans QB Marcus Mariota didn’t play in the second half due to a hamstring injury. In Week 13, the Titans won 24-13. LeShaun Sims intercepted a pass intended for DeAndre Hopkins in the end zone with 1:02 left. Mariota ran for a touchdown and threw for another. Watson was out for the season then for Houston and Tom Savage threw for 365 yards.

Why Bet on Houston?

The Texans lost 27-20 in New England on Sunday – in his first regular-season game since tearing his ACL last midseason, Deshaun Watson lost a fumble on the game’s first play and it led to a New England 7-0 lead that the Pats would never relinquish. Watson completed 17-of-34 passes for 176 yards, one touchdown, and one interception, adding eight carries for 40 additional yards. Running for his life as he played with an undermanned receiver corps, Watson struggled mightily. Watson accepted the blame for the loss. Lamar Miller rushed 20 times for 98 yards in the Texans’ Week 1 loss, adding an 11-yard reception. he 98 yards rushing was his most since 2016. DeAndre Hopkins caught 8-of-11 targets for 78 yards and lost seven yards on a rush. Houston played without No. 2 WR Will Fuller. Coach Bill O’Brien is hopeful Fuller (hamstring) will be ready to face the Titans Week 2. Fuller was able to practice on a limited basis last week and was a game-time decision, suggesting he was close to being ready. The bad news: right tackle Seantrel Henderson is out for the season with a broken ankle. Henderson will undergo surgery on Tuesday and should be placed on injured reserve this week. His loss is a blow to an offensive line which was already among the worst in the league. Julien Davenport switched to right tackle with third-round rookie Martinas Rankin taking over at left tackle after Henderson exited on Sunday. O’Brien also expects CB Kevin Johnson (concussion) to miss significant time. “It’s concerning,” O’Brien said of the injury. “He will be out for a while.” Johnson was just cleared of a preseason concussion last Friday. He could go injured reserve.

Why Bet on Tennessee?

The Titans played the longest game in NFL history Sunday (sort of) and lost 27-20 in Miami. The game was the longest since the NFL/AFL merger at just short of seven hours due to a couple of weather delays. The game was originally suspended at roughly 2:15 p.m. ET and delayed for two hours when lightning was first spotted in the area and After the game resumed at 4:10 p.m. ET, the game was suspended again due to lightning just forty minutes later at 4:50 p.m. ET. The Dolphins held a 7-3 lead with 6:47 left in the third quarter when the game resumed a second time. The game finally concluded around 8 p.m. ET, after all, four of the late games had already ended. The previous record was 5 hours, 16 minutes for a game between the Bears and Ravens on Nov. 17, 2013, according to a Titans tweet. Marcus Mariota exited against the Dolphins with an elbow injury. Before leaving, Mariota completed 9-of-16 passes for 103 yards and two interceptions, rushing for 15 yards on three scrambles. Monday, Titans coach Mike Vrabel said Mariota (elbow) was “still being evaluated” for Week 2. Marcus Mariota is doubtful for Texans vs Titans in NFL Week 2. Delanie Walker, one of the NFL’s top tight ends, suffered ligament damage in addition to a dislocated ankle and will miss the remainder of the season. It’s a brutal blow for the Titans, who must adapt to the loss of their No. 1 passing game weapon as they try to sort out the depth chart in their receiver corps. Second-year pro Jonnu Smith will step into Walker’s void at tight end. LT Taylor Lewan exited Week 1 against the Dolphins with a concussion. The newly-minted highest-paid tackle in the game was injured on a questionable blindside hit from overpaid Dolphins DE Andre Branch. Lewan appeared to be knocked unconscious after not seeing Branch coming on the crack-back. Lewan is week-to-week.
