Default Official Texans @ Titans Game Thread, 11/21/2021

The 1-8 Texans hit the road to take on the 8-2 Tennessee Titans in an early game this Sunday. The Texans are coming off their bye week while the Titans squeezed by the Saints at home last week 23-21. The Titans have a 6 game win streak going.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill is having a so-so year: 2358 yards, 7.5 avg, 12 TDs, 8 INTs, 90.7 rating. With the loss of Derrick Henry, RB duties will probably be split among Jeremy McNichols, D'onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson. Top receiver is AJ Brown (567 yds) followed by Julio Jones (336 yds.).

Teams usually do well coming off a bye but we're talking about the Texans here. If Texan QB Tyrod Taylor can rebound from his poor performance against the Dolphins two weeks ago, they might be able to keep it close. However, the Titans have the better personnel and the stronger team.

Ok I'm just going to come out and say that I expect a Texans victory.
Who knows maybe it's the holiday spirit that's got me in such an optimistic mood ? And of course I'm talking about a week from today when the Jets are in town, because no way we win in Nashville today. Wow what a Turkey-week treat that would be !

Texans driving with about 7 minutes left in the 1st qtr.

Titans had the ball first and got past midfield but ended up having to punt.

Texans now at the Titan 38.

Holding on Howard backs it up.

1st qtr ends on a pick by Grugier-Hill. Runs it back 82 yards to the Titan 6 yard line. Texans in business.

----------------------------------------------

Grugier-Hill? Are you a Grugier or a Hill? Make up your mind.....

Played for the Eagles, 1 year with the Dolphins. 5 seasons in the league. Went to Eastern Illinois.

That concludes today's episode of "Meet the Texans".

I'm in a survivor pool with about 60 co-workers in my office, down to just me and one other for the win... and I picked the Titans this week.

Because, of course.

Yep, the football gods are cruel.

There's still time left - remember, it's the Texans....

Kinda hard to believe the defense is putting up a goose egg....

Titans go for it on 4th and 5 and the Texans stop them - a shift in momentum.

On 3rd and 8 pass to Conley is a yard short. Texans punting with 13 minutes left.

Titans outgained the Texans 420 to 190 yards.

Texans with just 107 yards passing, 83 yards rushing.

However, the Texans won the turnover battle 5-0. You're supposed to win when you have a 5-0 turnover differential....
