Thumbs down Different Team Same Strategy

From the Texans Friday Update:

But Carr and the rest of the Texans know that the key to containing the Titans is keeping McNair and his supporting cast off of the field. Tennessee currently holds the top spot in the NFL for time of possession at a commanding 34:22 per game. Houston hopes to turn the tables on that statistic.

Translation

Ultra conservative play calling with check-downs to Davis in an effort to eat clock. *run-run-pass-punt-strategy* Andre Johnson will have almost no catches in the first half allowing the Titans to score first and score often.

It didn't work last week in the first half against the Vikings who have the second worse defense in the league. Why the Texans think it will work this week is beyond me.

Well at least the second half will be exciting as Carr passes for 300 yards in an effort to win.
