Texans Rout Titans 41-7 to Claim First Place in the AFC South

The biggest game of the year for the Texans so far this season, could not have gone any better for Houston. Tennessee had gotten off to a surprising start and is the Texans major opponent in the battle for the division title, but Houston was able humble them with a complete 41-7 demolition.

After punting on their first two possessions the Texans scored on six of their next seven chances, and were led by a dominant performance from their running back Arian Foster. He had 115 yards rushing on 25 carries with 2 touchdowns, and 119 yards receiving including a 78 yard touchdown reception.

The Texans defense also played great holding the Titans to 148 yards of offense on the day and completely shutdown Chris Johnson who to this point this season has looked nothing like the Johnson of two years ago. Houston has position themselves well to make a push for the postseason and division title.

The Texans will host the (2-5) Jacksonville Jaguars next week in a game that they need to win to maintain the momentum they have gained and to put some space between themselves and the rest of the division.
