Teague's Take: Are The Titans Catching Up With The Texans?

Teague's Take: Former NFL Standout Turned Analyst George Teague Wonders - Are The Tennessee Titans Catching Up With The Houston Texans?

Are the Tennessee Titans catching up with the Houston Texans? This week on the Teague’s Take Podcast with Former Alabama and NFL safety George Teague, we kicked around the idea that the defending AFC South champs - perennial champs, really - are going to get a push from the Titans in 2020.

“The Titans, with Derrick Henry and all the play-action, I think pushes them ahead of everyone (in the division),'' said Teague, who is also concerned that Houston might struggle to make up for the trade-away of DeAndre Hopkins.

“I think the departure of Hopkins will affect Deshaun Watson and that offense,'' says Teague, the former Alabama standout who had a long NFL career including a successful stint with the Dallas Cowboys.

Teague talks about the talents of Will Fuller, Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks as featured guys in this passing attack, and also touches on the possibility that running back David Johnson, who came here from Arizona in the Hopkins trade, can be an overall difference-maker to the offense.

Buzbee's Burden: Are Texans at Fault For Deshaun Watson Deeds?

Seems plantiffs attorney Tony Buzbee has a high burden of proof to connect Houston's organization directly to Deshaun Watson's actions inside massage rooms.

And of course, it's important and fair to note that the Houston Texans walked away with the division title in 2019 with a record of 10-6 before losing in the division round to the eventual Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.

Can Houston do it again? The strength of schedule here is tied for eighth-highest in 2020. And six of the first seven games on the 2020 schedule come against playoff teams. Meaning ... we're going to find out maybe sooner, rather than later, about the Texans' ability to hold off challenges in the standings.
