OUR PICK: J.J. Watt could be placed on injured reserve this week, which would be a significant blow to the Texans' defense. That unit still boasts Whitney Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney, but Watt is a difference-maker every week when healthy. Without Watt, look for the Titans to move the ball easier than people expect. The over is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams in Houston and 8-3 in the last 11 meetings overall.
