For the third time in four weeks, the Houston Texans play at home as they clash with the Tennessee Titans. Check here where you can watch these teams square off.
It’s been more than a week since we’ve seen the Houston Texans fall on their facemasks on a Thursday evening at Foxborough.
Bill O’Brien’s squad looks to make amends this Sunday as the team plays its third home game in four weeks. It won’t necessarily be easy putting that 27-0 beatdown at the hands of the undermanned New England Patriots behind them, but hopefully it served as a learning experience.

The Texans host a Tennessee Titans team that has consistently struggled to score early in this campaign. Three games have added up to a combined 42 points — or three less than the Atlanta Falcons managed this past Monday night at New Orleans.
Houston’s attack is also a work in progress. Quarterback Brock Osweiler has been a bit erratic and has thrown at least one interception in each of the team’s three games this year.
On the other hand, running back Lamar Miller has proven he can carry the load when it comes to the ground attack. He’s totaled 20-plus carries in each of his first three outings with the Texans. In 61 career contests over four seasons with the Miami Dolphins, he managed that many attempts in a game just twice. And 2016 first-round pick Will Fuller has teamed with Pro Bowler DeAndre Hopkins to form a potent receiving tandem.
As for the Titans, it’s safe to say running back DeMarco Murray has been a bright spot for his newest employer. Second-year quarterback Marcus Mariota has been a bit up and down so far this fall.

This is the first divisional game for both of these clubs, and if you’re the Texans, it’s very important that the team holds serve at home. O’Brien will need a better performance from Osweiler (not easy against Dick LeBeau’s defensive unit), and J.J. Watt, Vince Wilfork and company must put the wraps on Murray.
