*2007 Stats

The Houston Texans and Titans always play tight games.  The most entertaining/frustrating game of last season was the Rob Bironas game.  The second game was one of Vince Young's best performances in 2007.  He finished the game 21-31 for 248 yards with 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.  He also rushed for 44 yards on 5 carries.

No one is looking forward to these games less than Matt Schaub who was knocked out of both meetings last season.  On the flip side, no one is looking more forward to these games than his backup Sage Rosenfels.  He was 39-65 for 475 yards and 5 touchdowns with 4 interceptions.  He might end up in the Hall of Fame if he played against the Titans every week.

I expect next year's matchups to be very close as they always are.  I predicted when the Titans drafted VY that he would never lose to the Texans, and so far he is making me look pretty smart.  The Titans will win this week 3 matchup on late play by VY to set up a Bironas game winning field goal and push their record to 3-0.
