Sunday's deluge of Week 7 NFL regular season action includes a matchup between AFC South rivals the Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans, two teams that have risen to the top of their division mainly due to the fact that the usually formidable Indianapolis Colts are having a nightmare of a season, having lost all of their six games so far.

As such, Sunday's Texans vs Titans game in Tennessee is expected to be well supported at most NFL-friendly online sportsbooks, including Bodog, which has listed the Tennessee Titans as the -3 point betting favorites (O/U 44.5).

Usually at this point in the season, the Indianapolis Colts would be leading the AFC South division, but absence of the team's top-rated quarterback Peyton Manning due to injury, has thrown the team into utter turmoil. On the upside, however, the Colt's woes have allowed the Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans to come to the fore.

Tennessee Titans Leading AFC South on 2-3

Currently the Tennessee Titans are leading the division on 2-3, with the Houston Texans not far behind on 3-3, the Jacksonville Jaguars behind them on 1-5 and finally the Indianapolis Colts scraping the bottom of the NFL barrel on 0-6.

Going into Sunday's game, the question is whether the home team can keep their pretty evenly-matched visitors at bay? According to Bodog, they should be able to, but then anything could happen as both teams come into the game with problems.

For the visiting Texans, it's the fact that they are missing two key players due to injury - linebacker Mario Williams, who suffered a season-ending pectoral muscle injury earlier this month, and wide receiver Andre Johnson, who may be out for the next few games with an injured hamstring. Do the Texans have enough talent to fill the holes left by these players?

Similarly, the Titans have some player issues, arguably the biggest of which is the fact that their resigned running back Chris Johnson has only scored one touchdown all season. Plus Tennessee's running game is currently ranked last in the league, averaging just under 67 yards on the ground per game. That is not good enough if Tennessee hopes to make it to the playoffs.
