That increases their chances by a bit...not much...but a bit. 

Honestly, the loss of Blake Cashman and Will Anderson Jr are the biggest losses - those two anchor the Texans run D and are the surest tacklers on the team. Derrick Henry averages close to 200 yards/game vs the Texans (not exaggerating, it's somewhere in that range) and Anderson/Cashman were the only two guys who could stop the run consistently. 

Unless Denzel Perryman and newly acquired Derek Barnett fill those two holes in run defense, Titans will control TOP and ride Henry to a W.

I didn't realize Anderson was out too. Jesus. Injuries really derailed what looked to be a surprise season for the Texans. 

Granted, they still likely finish better than anyone originally predicted - but they had the makings of a team that could have played upset had they gotten into the playoffs.

This is where DeMeco Ryans, Chris Burkes and Bobby Slowik need to prove they deserve to be in the positions they're in; coming in down several key guys on the road against a division opponent... but a division opponent you traditionally beat and with the playoffs on the line. 

No excuses, everyone on this team gets paid. Time to earn your money.
