Houston’s current team meets its former team, but bad blood isn’t the only draw for this Houston Texans-Tennessee Titans matchup at NRG Stadium. These teams are regarded as the two most likely to vie for the AFC South championship; Tennessee is even considered a dark-horse Super Bowl contender by some. Led by quarterback Marcus Mariota and running back DeMarco Murray, the Titans rely on a healthy mix of passing and running in one of the more balanced offenses in the league. The Texans, meanwhile, have turned to rookie quarterback DeShaun Watson to get the team’s offense on track. “The thing about DeShaun is he doesn’t get nervous…and I see that, so I don’t really concern myself too much about (inexperience),” said Texans head coach Bill O’Brien at his weekly press conference. Both teams look to make an early-season statement in a big division matchup.
