The Houston Texans are at a crossroads in their season. With a 1-4-1 record, a win means they are still alive. After all, even though Houston is horrendous so far, they do have a 1-0-1 record in the AFC South. A win over the Tennessee Titans and a 2-0-1 might be helpful towards making a playoff push.
A loss sends Houston to 1-5-1 and starts the conversation for the 2023 NFL draft.
The Texans may have a decent shot at keeping their slim postseason prospects alive as the Titans turn to rookie quarterback Malik Willis to fill in for Ryan Tannehill.
