Houston Texans 13 Tennessee Titans 12: HUH?

New, comments

I am eagerly waiting to see what Jeff Fisher has to say about the offense taking the field on 4th and 3 at the end of the game.  I am not going to kill Fisher for it because he is a great coach and one bad decision doesn't change that.  It is just hard to understand why he wouldn't send Rob Bironas out there with a shot to win the game from 49 yards out.

Overall the Titans played bad and didn't deserve to win.  Kerry Collins was terrible.  Justin McCareins is the worst receiver in the NFL.  The defense only gave up 13 points, but elite defenses don't give up 207 yards to a receiver and over a 100 yards to a running back.  Elite defense can get off the field when they know the other team is just running the ball to run out the clock.  This defense is very good, but we really should stop comparing them to the best defenses of all-time.  And who knows how long Albert Haynesworth is out.

End of the day the Titans are 12-2 and still control their own destiny for the #1 seed in the playoffs, but the postseason will be really short if they don't fix some of the problems we saw today.

Links and much more coverage in the morning.
