Titans Playoff Chances
The Titans are not only playing for a playoff spot, but also the AFC South crown. The Titans win the division with a win over the Texans or a Colts loss to the Jaguars.
If not as the division champs, Tennessee still gets a wild card spot with a loss from either Baltimore or Miami.
Titans Odds at Texans
The Titans opened as 7-point favorites before moving to 7.5. The Texans say they’ll start Deshaun Watson if he’s cleared, but starting tackle Laremy Tunsil will miss the game.
The Titans will try to wash out whatever happened in the snow last Sunday night in a 40-14 loss to the Packers.

Derrick Henry? Still really good. His 1,777 rushing yards leads the NFL.
The defense? Really bad.
The Titans started the season 5-0, topping 30 points four times. They lost three of the next four games, allowing at least 27 points in each of those losses. Then five consecutive games scoring at least 30 points and winning four of them.
The Titans easily cleared their 8.5 preseason win total.
Titans Super Bowl Odds
The 40-14 loss to the Packers raised more questions about whether the Titans defense can actually get enough stops (or just a stop) to win in the playoffs.
Our model gives the Titans a 2.3% chance of winning the Super Bowl. At +2800, this presents negative betting value according to our value calculator.
