Bing Predicts winner: Titans (63 percent)Opening line: TEN -3Kickoff time: 1 p.m. ESTThe Titans were dealt a crushing blow in Week 16 when Marcus Mariota suffered a broken right fibula, ending his fantastic sophomore season. He’s expected to make a full recovery and be ready for offseason OTAs. On top of Mariota’s injury, the Titans lost to the lowly Jaguars, 38-17, ending Tennessee’s postseason hopes.Houston, meanwhile, clinched the AFC South over the holiday weekend, so this is a game between two teams with little to play for. Considering the Texans will likely rest most of their starters for a good portion of the game, Bing Predicts gives a slight edge to Tennessee, which will start Matt Cassel at quarterback.
