Default Official Texans @ Titans Game Thread, 12/3/2017

The 4-7 Texans travel to Nashville, Tennessee this Sunday to take on the 7-4 Titans in an early Sunday game. The Texans are coming off a 23-16 road loss to the Baltimore Ravens on MNF. The Titans are coming off a 20-16 road win over the Indianapolis Colts.

In the last four games, the Texans have lost the turnover battle 10-3. For the year, the Texans are -8 in giveaway/takeaway. The Titans are -4. Quite simply, if the Texans don't turn it over, they have a shot at winning...

Texans bringing up 3 guys from practice squad, 2 OLB and 1 OL. Might as well start seeing what we have in young guys to help draft and free agent plans.

Gotta decide on Cushing activation pretty soon.

I guess id like to see some other QB now, though looks like he may get one more audition at ball control.

Ok so I'm looking forward to tomorrows game. Yea I really said that, but then I look forward to all Texans games, even preseason games, and that's what tomorrow game is, a glorified preseason game. It's a long stretch after the season ends when there's no NLF football, not even preseason NFL football.

J.J. Watt showed off his grisly scar and attempted to walk for the first time since breaking his leg the other day. Let's hope in 2018 we can finally get a full year of Watt, Clowney and Watson (sounds like a law firm, don't they?) just so we can finally see what we could have had.

9:21 remaining in 1st quarter, Texans up 3-0 after TD catch by Hopkins is overturned (correctly) by replay.

Run game ineffective. Special teams fumble forced and recovery set up drive. Great pass and catch by Andre Ellington to get field position. Makeshift OL holding up so far.

Sounds like Fido is back in concussion protocol. Bummer for him. Maybe now Stephen Anderson takes over... he is a great receiving threat, helpful now that Bruce Ellington is questionable to return, too.

How the Titans are 7-4 is a complete mystery.

I'd like to see the Texans acquire another TE (off season?) if possible. Fido looked like he was coming around but lately he's been plagued by injury and inconsistencies.....
