Well, I don’t think any of us quite expected that to happen.

The Texans collectively exceeded any expectations that were had for today’s game and broke the franchise record for scoring in a single game.

From the outset, the Texans came out firing with Andre Hal intercepting Marcus Mariota on the Titans’ very first drive. This created a short field for Deshaun Watson and the offense, who converted with a option toss to Lamar Miller in the end zone. This was the opening of the flood gates, with the Texans scoring on their next four offensive drives with Watson throwing touchdowns to DeAndre Hopkins and the returning Will Fuller along with running for a TD himself.

The Titans lost their starting QB Marcus Mariota shortly after the break to a hamstring injury, and the Texans promptly piled on the pressure by turning over backup QB Matt Cassell and scoring on a Deshaun Watson pass to Lamar Miller. The Texans added scores through the foot of rookie kicker Kai’imi Fairbairn and a pick-six by rookie LB Dylan Cole.

The Texans give the Titans a pasting and set a franchise scoring record in the process.

This is your thread to go nuts because that game was nothing but nuts.
