Well, we made that much more difficult than it probably should have been.
Things looked a lot better to at the beginning of the game. The offense was moving down the field with ease, we were getting Lamar Miller towards the outside, and generally making life hell for the Titans’ defense.
Then the Titans figured it out and started to have our number.
Brock Osweiler threw a couple interceptions, both when targeting DeAndre Hopkins, both of which were slightly off throws. Early on, Osweiler looked pretty solid, with the tight ends having a pretty good ball game. C.J. Fiedorowicz (before he got hurt) especially, with 48 yards and a TD.
DeAndre Hopkins had a down game. Whether that was a case of Brock not going his way, or just others being open, I'm not sure. With just one reception for four yards, it certainly wasn't what we're used to seeing from Nuk.
But hey, what about that punt return TD?!
I didn't even know those things were even possible, but it's all in a day’s work for the beast that is Will Fuller. He can do it all.
Houston’s defense didn't look quite as good, but still was fairly solid. DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry form one of the better running back committees we will face this year, and they didn't manage to run it on us a bit. The defense came up solid when it needed to, including a crucial pair of stops on third and fourth down late in the game, with both times the coverage being good on a certain Andre Johnson.
A win is a win. It’s another mark in that W column, putting us two wins ahead of the rest of the AFC South. That’s not a bad spot to be in.
