Texans visit Seattle

Houston's Deshaun Watson.

While the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars have the week off the Houston Texans travel to the Pacific Northwest to take on the Seattle Seahawks.

A half-game behind the Titans and the Jaguars in the AFC South Division standings, the Texans, 1213.00 to win Super Bowl LII, can pull even with their two Division rivals if they can get the better of the Seahawks at the CenturyLink Field.

It's been lose one, win one for Houston this season with defeats to the Jaguars, New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs followed by victories over the Cincinnati Bengals, Titans and the Cleveland Browns. The sequence suggests it may not be a happy visit to the emerald City for the Texans.

Passed over by the Browns in the 2017 NFL Draft, when Cleveland traded the pick to the Texans, Deshaun Watson completed 17-of-29 for 225 yards and three touchdowns last time out against the Browns at the NRG Stadium. The rookie from Clemson was picked off once, but it was not nearly enough as Houston rolled to the 33-17 triumph before having their bye week last week.

The Indianapolis Colts, currently sitting in the cellar of the AFC South Division, are also on the road this weekend when they play the Bengals at the Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati. The Colts have beaten the Browns and the San Francisco 49ers, the two winless teams in the league, but otherwise have performed poorly in five losses.

Next week Indianapolis make the trip to Houston to face the Texans, Jacksonville welcome in the Bengals to EverBank Field, while the Baltimore Ravens, 40-0 winners over the Miami Dolphins on Thursday, are hosted by the Titans at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville.
