The Tennessee Titans travel to nrg Stadium Monday night to take on the red-hot Houston Texans in primetime.

The Houston Texans started the season to the tune of a disappointing 0-3 record following the return of quarterback DeShaun Watson from a torn ACL, but have since turned it around and won seven straight games and are in the thick of the AFC playoff race. With a win tonight against their division rivals, the Texans could all but eliminate them from the race for the division and maintain their two game lead over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Titans are facing the opposite situation. Sitting at 5-5, they need a win in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. Taking down the Texans would go a long way, as they’d be tied with the Colts for second place in the AFC South and would only be a game behind the Texans.

Who will win Monday night’s divisional matchup? Will we get good Marcus Mariota or bad Marcus Mariota on primetime? Let us know what you think in the comments.
