Inactives:

Keke Coutee
Sammie Coates, Jr.
Kayvon Webster
Roderick Johnson
Jadeveon Clowney
Carlos Watkins
Christian Covington

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

Texans now favored by 3 to 4. One website has 79% of the money going to the Texans making it the most lopsided pick of the week....

So the Titans are missing 3 OTs today, and I can't figure out what is going on with Clowney. Something just doesn't add up. Safe to say his days as a Texan are numbered.

Titans use a fake punt to get on the scoreboard first. Receiver was wide open.

Titans 7, Texans 0

9:51 left in the 1st qtr.

It is just mind boggling how incompetent this team is at basic things any high school team would know to do. The leave the guy on the outside completely uncovered. No gunner, no nothing. Insane.

I'm beginning to think that Belichick is a guy of average intelligence in normal but he just looks like a genius compared to fking knuckle draggers like BOB.

Not a good look when one of your former coaches knows he can pants you right out of the gate.

This is pretty disgusting.

Two foul starts not even halfway through the first quarter on Davenport.
No gunner on the fake punt.
Fumbled snap exchange.
Short field goal attempt.


What does the rest of the first quarter even have in store?

This might be O'briens last game.

I believe Hop has gotten into Watson's head...its that whole "Im the guy...look for me syndrom"

Not unless McNeck has finally kicked it.

But it is starting to feel like any number of previous seasons where I was actively rooting for horrible things to happen to the team so that the owner might finally wake up and see what was happening.

Looks like a Titan running free at Watson on every pass play. Don't think we have a staff capable of scheming against the blitz.... One screen play so far...

Hilarious, Vrabel showing zero respect for the Texans defense.

Watson's pre-snap reads seem to all be wrong...I place that blame on BOB

Hes seems to be falling into that old Texans trap...stare down Hopkins...

He just needs to get back to relying on his instincts...

Watson looks so much better when he is not locked on DHop the whole time...just drop back and throw...

On another note, we need to take some shots to Fuller instead of deep shots to a double covered DHop
