Houston's gets boost with Fuller's return in 57-14 win

Houston's gets boost with Fuller's return in 57-14 win”

Although almost beating the Patriots in Week 3 is impressive, as was beating a division rival by 43 points in Week 4, but what's concerning is Watson is now our 30th-highest-graded quarterback, ranking ahead of only Cam Newton and DeShone Kizer among qualified quarterbacks. This is another sign that Houston's offense is getting better each game. The streak was capped by DeMarco Murray's 75-yard run, putting the Titans up 30-14.

The Titans posted a record of 2-4 against AFC South rivals and they lost twice to the Texans, a big reason why they finished second in the division in 2016.

The Titans allowed the Texans to gain 445 yards and the second-most first downs in franchise history with 33. "He wants to throw the football", O'Brien said. Just to put things in perspective, that's a 45.6 percent increase from Week 1's production.

Since taking over in the second half against Jacksonville in Week 1 to being named the starter the following week, Watson has made strides. I knew from that point forward that he should be the starting quarterback. Yeah, this Watson kid can play. Just think about all the opportunities this team would've had the quarterback situation would've been sound?

Mularkey's only winning season as a head coach was a year ago, with the Titans going 9-7. The Texans are 1-2 on the season but sit at 2-1 ATS ahead of the Week 4 game.

Watson's first start came the week before, a 13-9 win at Cincinnati highlighted by his 49-yard touchdown run. He did his own rendition of the Lambeau Leap across the Texans wall and did some dancing with Toro in the end zone.

Of course, Clemson people aren't surprised that a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist and national champion is having fun at the expense of NFL defensive coordinators.

Whichever team's defense can steal the show will be the one escaping NRG Stadium with the "W" on Sunday afternoon. It was the first of four interceptions for Houston's defense.

"I have a long way to go", Watson said. Who's he up against?

Houston has had to suffer through a line of veteran castoffs and retreads - the Brian Hoyer's, the Brock Osweiler's, the T.J. Yates, and the Matt Leinart's of the NFL. "I think he's making really good decisions, that's the kind of guy he is - a very calm guy, a very thoughtful guy".

The Titans look for their third win in a row after dropping their opening weekend game to the Oakland Raiders and a road win against the Texans would be a huge statement to the rest of the division that they are the team to beat.
