Houston Texans Will Win The Turnover Differential
The Texans and Titans are on two different ends of the spectrum when it comes to turnover differential. The Tennessee Titans have the best turnover differential in the league at +8, while the Texans have one of the worst turnover differentials, at -5. The Texans have been hurting themselves early in the year, digging their own grave with all the turnovers they are giving away.
Their offense was expected to decline as they traded away star WR DeAndre Hopkins. In the win over the Jaguars, although they didn’t win the turnover differential, they were able to make enough plays to win the game. After firing head coach Bill O’Brian, the team came ready to play.
The Tennessee Titans are known to run the ball, control the clock and play good defense. They can also strike at any time on offense with wideout AJ Brown. The Texans are going to need to get pressure in the backfield to slow down Henry, forcing Tannehill to beat them with his arm. I do not expect Henry to fumble the ball as he is a hard man to bring down, but I can see Tannehill making poor decisions with the ball.
The Texans are one of the better pass rushing teams, with 14 sacks on the year. I think they will be able to apply pressure on Tannehill, forcing him to make some poor reads with the ball.
