Titan fan checking in (not that I ever checked out)...

Texans will win. Cannot see Titans winning in both Pittsburgh and Houston. I also can't see the Texans coming out that flat again.

Not sure on a score, but believe Texans win. Want to see injury updates first.

Titan fan here. I honestly thought we would lose to the Steelers. So my initial thought was to be 0-2 going into week 3. I really dont think the Titans have anything for Houston but Im fine with being 1-1 lol.... I just hope that its a decent game and we dont get shut out...

Welcome to the Titans fans.

I haven't gone back and watched that Steeler game, yet. I want to see what happened before I pull any scores out of the air but I expect us to win this game.

I didn't expect the Titans to beat the Steelers. CJ2K is streaky and Locker has some potential. I want to see that Titans D and what they did and whether it was the Titans playing good football or if it was the Steelers sucking worse than I thought they would.

Just my opinion, but I don't think the Steelers are nearly as good as everyone thinks them to be, nor are the Titans as bad as everyone thinks them to be. I've been saying all along the Titans are going to challenge the Dolts for 2nd place in the AFCS. I'm still not a believer in the whole Luck mystique with the Dolts.

9 sounds really really high, although without having watched the TEN/PIT game I cannot say for sure. One Steeler fan I know said that both teams were just trying to give the game away and the Titans just played less ****ty than Pittsburgh did.

Not that far from the truth. I think a well constructed offense puts up 35 easy on the Steelers right now.

Too soon for me to predict a score, but I predict Antonio Smith will play like a freaking mad man. You know it ate him up to not be with the team last night. I also don't anticipate JJ going sackless for another game.

Hopefully we'll work in Ed some, and have him ready to roll week 3. He looked like he wanted to be out on the field playing last night pretty bad.

Win by 7. I think the Titans pass game is going to look like crap, but their rushing attack will be good enough to keep them hanging around. I think the Texans pass game isn't as prolific but I believe the running game will work much better.

It's a good thing Jake Locker doesn't get nearly the attention of being terrible that Blaine Gabbert gets. Hopefully the Titans extend him.

Some funny stuff over there.

Some seem to believe they beat the 07-08 Patriots with how great their defense is now. I mean they did beat down a team with a aging QB who has no weapons and no Oline, so maybe they are right?

Realistically though I can't see it. They have a good running game, but the Texans are pretty stout against the run and they eat decent QBs alive. Not to mention it is our home opener AND after the slow start last week they will be making it a emphasis to start stronger.

It could be competitive for a while since it's a division game but I think the Texans should win comfortably.

Schaub with 423 yards and 4 TDs
AJ 237 yards and 2 TDs
Foster with 181 yards and 1 TD
JJ Watt with 5 sacks
JoJo with an int

BANK on it boys, we are going to destroy the titans, and Kubiak will show something rarely seen in his tenure as head coach of the texans. He will put his foot on the throat of the titans and squeeze the life out of them.....

I hope so, and you may very well be right. I do think they are improved along O-Line and maybe they have taken a step forward on D.

But we are deeper, and have more star power on our roster. And as much as the dilusional titans fans think they are entrenched with NFL lor and rich history (lol), the fact of the matter remains their squad is an inexperienced one and our team and its systems are in 5th gear.

We have a short week, but it's our home opener and this team will ultimately force its will on Locker and the titans. Score will look closer than the game feels.

Texans 27

I'll say 31-14, Texans.

It looked to me like the Steelers were moving the ball at will on the Titans until Pouncey went down. CJ0.5K had < 3 ypc and Locker completed 55% of his passes for 6.3 yards per attempt. And I don't think that was against a great defense.

Greetings Texans Nation from Nashville,

The one thing Titans fans have potentially in this game is that the Texans could get very overconfident coming into this game since you guys were expecting two easy W's in the schedule. You guys clearly game out last week and clearly laid an egg every which way in the first half...it was San Diego's fault that they didn't put you guys away when the had the chance. You'd think a three touchdown league would be enough but that's not enough against a good team in the NFL...never let off the gas.

Nobody expects us to have a chance...of course, they were saying the same thing last week. We shut down the Steeler running game, but usually that means that Big Ben just carves up our secondary and takes the game that way. But with five sacks and excellent coverage by the corners, he had a long night.

If we can make a game of this going into the 4th quarter, all bets are off. It's hard to make comebacks on the road against a good opponent, but then again, you guys did it last week. Anything is possible in the NFL. everybody thinks we're going to lose anyway which means we can play like we have nothing to lose.

Are the Texans the better team? Sure. Will you be tomorrow? We'll see.

Indeed, we shall see. I know it's an old clique, but it is the reason they play the game. It could be close in the 4th but I see the Texans trying to shut down the run game and make Jake beat them with his arm. If that's the way it comes down, do you have the faith in your QB that he can get it done?

I predict DeAndre Hopkins will pick up 75 yards and a TD.

If that's the way it comes down, do you have the faith in your QB that he can get it done?

The defense has to keep us in the game early on to give the offense enough time too get a rhythm going. The offense getting a slow start has been a weakness of this team.

If I were you guys, I'd keep a lookout for a few players under the radar. While everybody talks about CJ, it was Jackie Battle, the 3rd string RB who scored the winning only TD last week. During that drive we passed once and ran 11 times. When the Steelers weren't trying to run down the 190 lb speed back, they were getting run over by the 240 lb bruiser. With Shoen Greene, the #2 back still nursing a tweaked knee from last week, look for more Battle on the field backing up CJ.

And on the wide receiver core, Damien Williams who has been very reliable of late is out with a tweaked hammy. That puts rookie receiver Justin Hunter into the mix, and everyone likes his talent and upside. All he lacks is experience.

Finally, Locker has been more accurate of late but it's still a big question mark. Since the running game was clearly working last week, we just went with that. I think this week Jake is going to have to move the chains himself more.

I'm not looking forward to seeing that defense @Tennessee, but if we can find a way to improve our pass protection, you're going to hate Bernard Pollard. Our TEs worked him all day long (rewatch the game if you get a chance)... Schaub just didn't have a chance to get the ball out.

I have been following him all preseason. I like his attitude, I just wished his skills matched it. He isnt that good at coverage and his tackling leaves much to be desired. Im hoping to see a lot more George Wilson than Pollard. You guys definitely got the better Raven lol.
