Houston last played on Thanksgiving, dispatching of the Detroit Lions in overtime, 34-31. Tennessee failed to build on a blowout win over the Miami Dolphins, falling 24-19 to the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Texans rolled to a 38-14 victory over the Titans on Sept. 30 in Houston, despite being outgained by Tennessee, 325 total yards to 297. Texans quarterback Matt Schaub threw for 202 yards and two touchdowns, while Arian Foster rushed for 86 yards and a score.
Experts from around the web believe there will be a repeat of that game this weekend, at least as far as the result. All nine of ESPN's analysts who have submitted picks are taking the Texans, as are all three Yahoo! Sports writers and all eight CBS Sports NFL experts.
