Thursday Night Football Live: Jaguars vs. Titans

The Texans aren’t playing on Thursday Night Football this week, but the outcome of the game matters to them.

With your Houston Texans sporting a three game lead over the Titans and a five game lead over the Jaguars in the division with four games left in the regular season, you might think tonight’s AFC South clash in Nashville is of little practical import to the Texans.

You’d be wrong.

For as Kenneth noted earlier this week, a Titans loss to Jacksonville this evening, coupled with a Houston win over the Colts on Sunday, means the Texans secure the AFC South crown in Week 14. I don’t know about you, but I’d rather sew up the division sooner rather than later.

Consequently, you have another reason to watch Thursday Night Football this week, and when this sentence ends, you have somewhere to chat about it.
