    Two undefeated division rivals met on the Thursday night football and the game didn't disappoint. The Titans jumped all over their rival early, taking a 7 point lead on a pass to Kendall Wright. The Texans went 3 and out. On the next possession, Tennessee picked up where they left off, moving right down the field. However, JJ Watt got good pressure off the edge and Zach Mettenberger threw it short to the flat. Corner Patrick Robinson jumped it and returned it for a pick 6. The teams traded body blows for the rest of the half and ended it tied at 7. The texans eventually added a field goal in the early 4th quarter. After another Tennessee punt, the Texans moved the ball to the edge of field goal range and forced with 3rd and 2, decided to play it safe with a screen to HB Shane Vereen, who broke it 36 yards to the house. This set Houston up witha 2 possession lead. Tennessee moved quickly and cut the lead with their own touchdown. However, Houston was able to run out the final 3 minutes and escape with the win.

    Good game heathh the pick 6 was lucky and a huge momentum swing. See you in a few weeks
