Tennessee is in Desperate Need of a Win Against an AFC Team

The Tennessee Titans are a staggering 1-19 SU and 2-17-1 ATS in their last 20 games against opponents in the AFC. After losing to the Oakland Raiders last Sunday, the Titans will get another chance to turn things around against an AFC opponent this Sunday visiting the Houston Texans.

SHARK BITES
  • The Titans are 0-5 ATS in their last five games against the Texans.
  • The Texans are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games in Week 4.
  • The Titans are 0-10-1 ATS in their last 11 games against the AFC.

Tennessee is 1-8 SU in its last nine games against teams with winning records. This likely doesn't bode well for the Titans as Houston is 10-2 SU in its last 12 games against teams with losing records.

Brock Osweiler was largely ineffective in Houston's 27-0 loss to the New England Patriots last Thursday night. Osweiler, who was signed to a four-year $72 million deal this offseason, has a passer rating of just 72.2 through three games and has thrown four interceptions to go along with just three touchdown passes.

Like Osweiler's previous team in Denver, the Texans are hoping to win the Super Bowl this season with an elite defense. Even after Thursday's dud performance, Houston still ranks fifth in the NFL in total defense allowing 277 yards per game and seventh in scoring defense allowing 17.7 points per game.
