The Houston Texans (5-8) will hit the road to meet the Tennessee Titans (5-8) in their second match-up of the 2010 season.
Both Houston and Tennessee are coming off losses that have effectively ended any chances at a playoff birth, but this game impacts division order, drafting order, the 2011 schedule, and, above all else, is a rivalry game.
Last time these teams met, Houston shut down Rusty Smith, Andre Johnson treated Cortland Finnegan like the red-headed step-child, and the Texans won the game 20-0.
With no playoff impact, this will be a good measure of each team's character which will impact the futures of Gary Kubiak and Jeff Fisher. All of the Yahoo, ESPN, and CBS picks are not in yet, but CBS is 4-1 in favor of the Texans while Yahoo has 2-0 Houston.
The game is on CBS at Noon CT with Kevin Harlan and Solomon Wilcots on the call. Your usual suspects will pick up the radio: Sports Radio 610 AM, 100.3 KILT FM and La Tremenda 1010 AM if you prefer Spanish.
The betting line is giving Tennessee, the home team, 1.5-points at the moment.
