After a rough start, the Houston Texans are looking to try and finish the 2008 regular season above .500.  That won't be an easy task as they'll be facing the one loss Tennessee Titans this weekend.  The Texans lost a few heartbreakers and - like the San Diego Chargers - this is a team that is probably playing above .500 football.  With that said, the Titans going 7-0 ATS against a team with a losing record might not necessarily apply here.  Maybe more importantly, the Texans are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

Alas, Tennessee has gone 7-0 against the Texans in their last 7 meetings, though a few of those games were close.

The Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans NFL betting odds opened at Titans -3.

The Titans are 10-2 ATS as favorites and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games against the AFC South.

For the Tennessee Titans, one goal remains in their historic regular season -- home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Tennessee, 12-1 for the first time in franchise history, has an opportunity to reach that objective Sunday.

If the Titans win and Pittsburgh loses to Baltimore, Tennessee will be at home throughout the AFC playoffs. The Titans, who have a two-game lead over the Steelers, host Pittsburgh next week.

Clinching home field could prove significant for Tennessee, which is 2-1 in its last three at home in the postseason but 1-3 in its previous four road playoff games. The Titans are 6-1 at LP Field this season.

With a 28-9 win over Cleveland last week, the Titans secured at least one home playoff game, a first-round bye and their first AFC South title since 2002.

"Our goal when we left the playoff game in San Diego, the day we came back, was to have a home playoff game this year," said coach Jeff Fisher, whose team fell 17-6 to the Chargers in the wild-card round last season. "That was our first goal, first and foremost. We've now guaranteed that. We'll move onto the next step hopefully."
