Texans hold 27-20 lead over Titans in 2nd half

The Houston Texans forced four turnovers and used three total touchdowns by quarterback Brandon Weeden to defeat the Tennessee Titans 34-6 at Nissan Stadium. The Texans know that one person can't replace what Watt brought to their team, but coach Bill O'Brien expects everyone to pitch in to help make up for his absence.

OUR PREDICTION: The Titans have been a awful play in this series before, going just 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six games in Houston and 0-5 against the number in their last five games overall versus the Texans.

His first National Football League touchdown came on a halfback pass from Arian Foster as a rookie and last season he caught a 15-yard touchdown pass from QB Brian Hoyer, now with the Bears.

Weeden, who was in the lineup in place of regular starting quarterback Brian Hoyer (concussion/ankle), made his first start since being claimed off waivers by the Texans in November.

Patriots' Record As Underdogs In Bill Belichick Era Will Blow You Away
OUR PICK: As soon as Brissett when into the game last Sunday, Josh McDaniels and the Patriots went into conservative mode. Watt isn't quite back to full form after July surgery to fix a herniated disk in his back.

Former GOP Sen. John Warner endorses Hillary Clinton
Warner will announce his decision at an event Wednesday in Alexandria with Clinton's running mate, Sen. But the former senator has never before endorsed a Democrat for president.

Will Fuller had never returned a punt for a touchdown at any level entering Sunday's game. "Get the ball back to our offense". "Delanie (Walker) did a great job of just sitting in the hole". We would get a first down here, a first down there, and, unfortunately, whether it was a penalty or miscommunication, just not executing. Fuller's 5-yard touchdown reception made it 14-0 in the first.

That means running back DeMarco Murray will likely be the best Titans option in this game for fantasy owners. Murray scored two touchdowns and finished the game with 95 rushing yards. Osweiler passed for 254 yards and two touchdowns.

Hopkins, who led the Texans in receptions last season, has 17 catches for 227 yards and two touchdowns through the first four games this season, but he is the second-leading receiver on the team. A guy like that you just try to limit him as much as you can.
