The Steelers have to hope that Derrick Henry runs all over the Houston defense and that C.J. Stroud struggles in his first game back from a concussion.

That would be the recipe for the Tennessee Titans to pick up a victory over the Texans and to send Houston to 8-8.

Tennessee displayed fight over the last three weeks, starting with its road win over the Miami Dolphins.

The Titans took the Stroud-less Texans to overtime in Week 15 and were beaten in the final minute by the Seattle Seahawks in Week 16.

Mike Vrabel’s team is at least expected to play the Texans close, and the Titans should be the looser of the two sides if it is close into the fourth quarter because they are eliminated from playoff contention.

Henry, who has a single 100-yard game in November and December, could be the X-factor for the Titans. He is due for a big game and could enact revenge on the Texans after only earning nine yards on 16 carries in Week 15.
