Their game against the 4-7 Titans this weekend, a rematch of a 38-14 Houston victory on Sep. 30, could be an opportunity for the ailing Texans pass defense to get back on track.
Houston is a -5.5 point road favorite, a big number for a divisional game on the road, even against a team struggling as much as Tennessee.
The Titans are now 1-1 with Jake Locker back on the field, as the talented young QB has been inconsistent in his first two starts since coming back from an early-season shoulder injury, which caused him to miss their first game with the Texans.
Locker completed only 9-of-21 passes in their win over Miami and then threw 2 INTs in their loss to Jacksonville last week. A match-up with the Houston pass defense, ranked 17th in the NFL, could be an opportunity for him to regain the momentum he started the year with.
