The Tennessee Titans will travel to Houston in a season finale with playoff implications for the second consecutive season. Last season, Tennessee won a shootout to win the AFC South division and this year they have a chance to clinch a #1 spot in the AFC which gives a first round bye and home-field advantage for the playoffs.
These teams met in Nashville on November 21st and the 2-7 Texans upset the 8-2 Titans in a sloppy 22-13 victory. Tennessee was dealing with numerous injuries and turned the ball over five times which makes it hard to beat anyone.
Can Tennessee get revenge and clinch a critical top spot for the playoffs?
The Tennessee Titans are dancing as back-to-back AFC South champs in a season when they lost the NFL’s leading rusher at Halloween and have seen 88 players see game action which is the most ever in an NFL season, with a game remaining. The Titans have dealt with countless adversity in the health department this year but have finally gotten healthy at the right time.
Tennessee hosted the red hot Miami Dolphins, winners of seven straight games, at home on Sunday in a game of serious playoff implications. The Titans responded with a dominating 34-3 victory that featured a strong run game and stifling defense in the pouring rain.
Ryan Tannehill had a quiet performance and finished 13/18 passing for 120 yards and a pair of touchdown passes to tight ends. D’Onta Foreman has been fantastic all season as he’s been asked to fill in for the big shoes left by the best running back in football. Foreman rushed a team high 26 carries for 132 yards and a touchdown.
The Titans have a chance to clinch a #1 spot in the AFC courtesy of a Cincinnati Bengals upset over the Kansas City Chiefs. A win on Sunday will give Tennessee the lone bye and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The team had to travel to Kansas City for the AFC Championship in 2020 and faded late, a home crowd could change the tide in their favor this year.
The Texans two game win streak was snapped by the San Francisco 49ers on the road 7-23 in Santa Clara. Houston led 7-3 at halftime but faded late including a 13 point shutout in the fourth quarter.
Despite his stats, Davis Mills had another solid game despite his severe lack of talent around him. Mills completed 21/32 passes for 163 yards with a touchdown and interception.
Houston currently has the #3 overall selection in the upcoming draft. They own the tiebreaker over the Jets and Giants due to strength of schedule which they have the easiest of the group.

4* Free Week 18 NFL Betting Prediction: UNDER
This spread has had large fluctuations early this week as the number has been around 12 points and has dropped to 10 points. I see the final score ending around that number so there is likely going to be many riding on either side of the line late in this one.
For that reason I like the under in this game. Both teams have been profitable in that department and tend to play in close contests as they are final with each other.
This is a must win game for Tennessee despite having the division already clinched. They will rely on their run game and recently outstanding defense to carry the load in this contest once again.
Expect the Titans to control the trenches and win a tough low scoring game in Houston.
