Week 8: vs Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Jake Locker is 'expected' to start this game according to comments from head coach Ken Whisenhunt on Monday, but his status is pending Locker's ability to practice later in the week. If his sore thumb doesn't get aggravated, Locker could return to action for the Titans in this game. If he misses time, though, backup Charlie Whitehurst (59/98 for 764 yards passing, five TDs and two interceptions thrown over his four appearances this year) will be under center again. We're not sure a rusty Locker would be an upgrade in this game - anyways, stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News this week as the starting quarterback for this one is up in the air as of midweek. The Texans' pass D is ranked 26th in the NFL averaging 268.7 net yards allowed per game, with 13 passing scores allowed vs. six interceptions (tied for 14th in the NFL) and 13 sacks (tied-19th) generated to date. The sub-par secondary has allowed three TDs with zero interceptions to Ben Roethlisberger (24/34 for 252 net yards, with three sacks taken for -16 yards) and three TDs with one interception to Andrew Luck (25/44 for 363 net passing yards, with three sacks taken for -7 yards). J.J. Watt can't both rush the passer and cover receivers - the secondary isn't doing a very good job of covering receivers of late, either. Advantage, whichever quarterback starts for Tennessee.
