    One thing we have going for us is the Texans are coming off Monday night away game. Further, it was an emotional win and a flat Texan team is vulnerable to the Titans. This will be a much stiffer OL than Pittsburgh as well as a better running game. Pittsburgh was not a good offense and we should be careful basing our predictions on that one game.

    The Texans defense will be as aggressive as Pittsburgh but with more talent. The offense will need more balance than last week and better execution in the passing game.

    A typical Titans slow start will be mortal.

    We will lose but not a blowout. I have a feeling Owen Daniels will have a field day.

    Hate to say it but its true. We are absolutely terrible against good TEs. Hopefully Williams's presence will change something, because good teams rely on the TE more then ever now.

    On defense, we make Schaub beat us, and hit him every chance we get.

    On offense, we line up, and run it down their throat until the stack the box. Then we go deep.

    In the second half, battle and Greene are used to break their will.

    The Titans MUST be able to run the football and have a couple of those drives like they did late in the first half last week to eat clock, keep the D fresh and keep the Texans offense on the sidelines.

    Defensively, pressure Schaub and win the turnover battle. If the Texans get up by 14+ early, it will be brutal.

    Winning first down will be the key 3+ yards on first down keeps us in a good running situation. And I know Watt is a good player (just threw up a bit) but run the ball right at him 30 times and see how he holds up. The secondary is it impressive at all but they do have a good defensive coordinator.

    On offense Foster looks different cant place it but he looks like he lost a step. Tate worries me more. AJ is AJ he will push off and be open all day. Stopping Daniels while being able to heat up Schaub will be the difference in the game 23-21 Titans

    Need to wear there d out with the run game early since they are coming off a short week plus the game ended a whole lot later then most MNF games do.

    Convert 3rd downs!!!! We cannot afford any 3 and outs or stalled drives to give the ball back to houston.
