Texans win 8 games, ending Titans’ 6 game streak.


Tyrod Taylor ran and threw two touchdowns. On Sunday, the Houston Texans beat the Tennessee Titans by 22-13. It ended the NFL’s longest streak of wins on a cloudy, rainy Sunday.

The Texans came into the game (2-8) having lost eight consecutive games since their season opener. They hadn’t had a touchdown on the road since Sept. 19, 2009.


Desmond King had two of the Texans’ four interceptions — three in the fourth quarter to snuff out the Titans’ attempted rally. Houston made those, along with a missed punt, into 13 points. Two sacks were also scored by the Texans.

After six consecutive wins, the Titans (9-3) lost their last game to fall 3-1. The Texans had not won since their season opener, so they lost to the winless New York Jets. Jonathan Greenard, a defensive lineman for the Texans with seven sacks and seven games in Houston was also injured.

Houston lost to Tennessee 420-191. However, the Titans were unable to overcome their injuries on a game day in which their list of injury was getting longer thanks to wide receiver A.J. Brown, who had an injury to his chest in the third quarter, was forced out of play.

Tennessee had already designated six starters and linebacker Bud Dupree as an injured reserve. Jackrabbit Jenkins, the starting cornerback was out with a chest injury and was an early scratch.

Fresh from their bye, the Texans took a 3-0 lead in their first drive. They never lost again. Texans linebacker Kamu Grugier Hill picked up Tannehill’s passIt was returned 82 yards to Titans 6, at the conclusion of the quarter.

Tennessee held the Texans to a second field goal by Ka’imi Fairbairn for a 6-0 lead.

Taylor completed his 76-yard drive, scrambling seven yards to get him to the zone. TD flipped Titans safety Amani Hooker over. It was Houston’s first TD on the road since Sept. 19 at Cleveland. But Fairbairn’s extra point was wide left in heavy rain.

Tennessee scored just before halftime. Tannehill was then flagged for intentional grounding, with only four seconds remaining.

Titans’ season was summed by one fumbled punt. Titans returning player Chester Rogers attempted to avoid the ball, but the ball hit his right foot. Trevon Smith made a comeback before a large celebration at the end by the Texans.

Taylor ran 5 yard for his second TDThe lead was 19-0 with just 7:00 to go in the third.

Tannehill tried unsuccessfully to restart the comeback, throwing a TD of 18 yards to Dez Fitzpatrick. This was with just 2:24 remaining in the third. Anthony Firsker recovered the ball from the endzone to help the Titans pull within 19-13, with 7:47 remaining.



Texans linebacker Jordan Jenkins hurt a knee. Ross Blacklock (defensive lineman), also suffered a knee injury.

Marcus Johnson, Titans wide receiver, suffered a right-hamstring injury late in the opening quarter. He had an impressive 100 yard receiving performance last week. Chris Jackson, the cornerback, was injured in his foot. Ola Adeneyi, an outside linebacker suffered a strained hamstring. Teair Tart was the defensive lineman who went down very late.
