NFL Week 2: Tennessee Titans take on the Houston Texans


This picture says it all.

Last week both of these two teams that are surely on different levels when it comes to talent and how they play, surprised the league during their first game of the season.

The only problem is the performances were reversed. Although the Texans won, they still allowed Rivers and the Chargers to dominate them until late in the game. This weeks practices and meetings for the Texans were probably intense. I’m sure the players on that roster weren’t happy with the way they played even if they won.

That was a game the Texans should have controlled since the first whistle of the game. But it didn’t go down that way and they were lucky enough to pick up the win.

The Titans on the other hand, manhandled Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers. No idea how this happened but this was another game I figured would be a blow out. Tennessee’s defense sacked Big Ben five times during this game and picked him off once.

Their only touchdown came from their running back Jackie Battle.

What Houston needs to do is show that last weeks performance against the Chargers isn’t really who they are. This defensive core is one of the best in the league and there is no reason why they shouldn’t over power the Titans on Sunday.

Schaub is obviously the better quarterback in this match up as he finished the game against the Chargers with nearly 350 passing yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

Locker scraped the bottom of the barrel and only passed for 125.
