NFL Week 13 Picks: Green Bay Ends New England’s Run

Aaron Rodgers

Tennessee Titans (+6.5) at Houston Texans

It was easy to bite and take the Titans getting a boatload of points last week against the Eagles – especially coming off an inspired performance against the Steelers the previous week – but further research and cooler heads prevailed before we remembered how much worse the Titans are than the Eagles. This is not the case for Sunday’s matchup in Houston.

For starters, the familiarity between the two division opponents holds the potential for a closer game. But, in reality, the game boils down to the 5-6 Texans representing the weakest team the Titans have faced since, well, the 3-4 Texans.

Tennessee is, in its own right, a terrible team. 2-9, going nowhere, and with a potentially dark future on the horizon, the team’s opportunities for tallying another win are clearly running out. That’s why they won’t let this one slip away.

The Titans win by six and beat the spread.
