    The final game of the regular season. I'm so glad this 2013 Texans season is coming to an end. With a 2-13 record we have already clinched a top two pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. A loss to the Titans would clinch the first overall pick for the Texans, but I kind of hope we win this game just to end the season on a positive note. Otherwise we'll have to endure the entire off-season on an active 14-game losing streak. The Texans can still beat the Titans and clinch the first pick if the Redskins beat the Giants. Considering the Rams have the Redskins' pick I see no reason why the Redskins wouldn't at least play hard. They almost beat the Cowboys yesterday.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick has been stinking it up lately for the Titans at quarterback but just like Chad Henne, he seems to have big games against the Texans. I also expect Chris Johnson to have a 25-rush, 150-yard, 3 TD performance against our defense. The Titans also have several good wide receivers who the Texans secondary just can't stop. Nate Washington and Kendall Wright, in particular, have too much speed and playmaking ability.

    The Titans are 0-5 against the AFC South this season even though they out-played us back in Week 2 at Reliant Stadium (our last win). That was the game the Texans came from behind down 8 points late in the fourth quarter to pull it out 30-24 in overtime. Their head coach Mike Munchak is definitely on the hot seat and could be fired soon. But if the Titans beat the Texans and end their season 7-9, I think that may be enough to save his job just because they didn't have high expectations entering the season.

    As much as I want the Texans to win, I don't see us pulling off a road win in Nashville, Tennessee. But I really want to see us go in there and kick some Titans ass on a silver platter. We can definitely use one of those feel-good wins as an organization right about now. Am I right or am I right?

    What the heck, it's Christmas time people. Time to believe!
    Let's end our 13-game losing streak and finish the season 3-13

    Texans 27, Titans 24

    I'll cheer for the Redskins to beat the Giants so we can still end up with the first overall pick after we beat the Titans. That game starts at noontime also so we can definitely scoreboard watch that Redskins-Giants game. But even if we end up with the second pick it's not too big of a deal to me. We're going to draft a great player with that first or second pick regardless.

    My patience has reached it's limit and I don't care. I'm going to watch the game, and hopefully the Texans win. Honestly, I don't see a bit of difference between having the 1st or 2nd pick in the draft this year. And we're guarantied one of those picks no matter what happens at the Titans.

    So whatever. Ra Ra Texans and all that.

    oh yeah, my prediction is we lose again and Wade is fired that night.

    24-20 Titans.....



    If Keenum starts:

    Williams/Gray are gonna be coming after him every single damn play & there won't be a thing he'll be able to do to counter it...he'll get sacked a number of times...probably fumble it and set the tacks up deep in our territory.

    If Schaub starts:

    Williams/Gray will be more selective in how they come after him, Matt will counter by getting the ball out of his hands fast, but it'll lead to lots of throwing short of the sticks & the inevitable untimely int.

    A lot (them) to a little (us)
    That seems to be how the scores have played these last 13 weeks.

    The past couple few weeks the O and D both have been a joke. "Any given Sunday" and all that jazz, but currently, we'd give the 08 Lions a reason to be optimistic

    It's ironic too that 2 of our favorite goats to kick (Bullock, Schaub) are the only reasons why we even have 2 wins this year.....easily could be 0-16 right now.

    Since this season has been a bit against everything the fans have wanted the Texans will win. I rather they win but I know a lot of folks want them to lose to secure the number one pick. So they'll pull it out and the boards will light up. I rather not go into next year on a 14 game losing streak though. I don't see anyone that is a bonafide #1 pick so that means little difference to me in comparison to the #2 pick or whatever.

    They might've been the goats early on, but to me, the entire team/organization has been an epic fail. As a defense kinda guy, I've been truly disappointed in the way our defense has gone from top 5-7 to the bottom 1/4

    Titans - 63
    Texans - 6

    Wade Phillips immediately signed as head coach and agrees to terms on 12 year deal following game.

    I was expecting a huge blow out against the Broncus but didn't get it.

    Titans I expect we'll lose in a squeaker so......

    Texans 194 - Titans 2

    37-13 wasn't a big enough blowout? Yikes...

    I say the Texans pull it out with a 21-13 win.

    Titans 24, Texans 13. Though it would be a sweet slap in their face to bookend the massive losing streak with wins over the Titans.

    3 reasons I really want us to tie. 1. We've never tied before, let's get that out of the way. 2. I can't root for a loss because that would mean rooting for a titans win which is wholly unacceptable. 3. A tie means we can't be caught in the suck for first pick stakes.

    I'll plump for 2-2, that sums these two teams up perfectly.

    Texans burn the 2012 letterman jackets on the Titans 50 yard line immediately after the game to cleanse the curse.

    There's only one reason to root for a tie: It ends the losing streak. :doot:

    I predicted us to have 70+ put on us. Still surprised they didn't.
