Teague made his feature debut as the co-director of Dirty O'Neil (1974). He followed this with the Depression-era crime exploitation movie The Lady in Red (1979), which he also edited. The horror-creature feature Alligator (1980) and the urban vigilante film Fighting Back (1980) (TV) followed. Teague directed two Stephen King adaptations in the 1980s, Cujo (1983) and the anthology film Cat's Eye (1985). His other films include The Jewel of the Nile (1985), the action movie Navy Seals (1990), the science fiction offering Wedlock (1991) and the made-for-TV movie The Triangle (2001) (TV). In addition to his film work, Teague has directed episodes of such TV shows as "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" (1962), "Barnaby Jones" (1973), "Shannon's Deal" (1990), "Profiler" (1996) and "Nash Bridges" (1996).
