Eventually, someone is going to give the Texans a tough game. But through Week Four of this NFL season, it hasn’t happened yet.
The Texans put a one-sided 38-14 beating on the Titans today in Houston, running their record to 4-0 and making an emphatic statement that they’re the best team in football.
Everyone knows the Texans have a good offense, and the usual suspects of quarterback Matt Schaub, running back Arian Foster, receiver Andre Johnson and tight end Owen Daniels all had solid games against the Titans. But the Texans’ defense hasn’t received enough credit. Young defensive lineman J.J. Watt is a stud, and he recorded two sacks, giving him a league-leading 7.5 on the season. And big defensive plays came when Texans defensive back Danieal Manning scored on a 55-yard interception return, and when Texans defensive back Kareem Jackson scored on a 63-yard interception return.
The Titans had some bright spots, including running back Chris Johnson delivering his first big game of the season. But this was an easy win for the Texans, their fourth convincing win of the season. The best team in the NFL resides in Houston.
