The Houston Texans managed the Shake-Up of the Year in the NFL by breaking their eight-game losing streak with a 22-13 win over the NFL’s most streaked team before Sunday, the Titans of Tennessee.
The Titans have won six consecutive victories and had the best record in the whole NFL and lost in the pouring rain at home against the team with the worst record in all of the AFC.
Surprise of the year
Despite the loss, Tennessee edged Houston in total yards by a huge 420-190 but they made too many mistakes that ultimately weren’t the key.
The Titans quarterback Ryan tannehill was intercepted four times, three in the fourth period and two of them by player of the match Desmond king.
In addition to the loss, injuries continue to wreak havoc on the “Music City” squad as a wide receiver. AJ Brown, who had opened up about his depression issues during the week, had to leave the game with a chest problem.
The scoring opened in the first quarter with a field goal of 43 yards per Kaimi fairbairn, and in the second quarter, Fairbairn himself connected 24 yards to take Houston’s lead to 6-0.
Two touchdowns on the ground by Tyrod Taylor
Before half-time, the quarterback of “Space City” Tyrod taylor scored the first touchdown of the game with a seven-yard run, but the extra point wasn’t good.
In the third quarter, Taylor scored on the ground again, this time on a five-yard rush to stun home fans with a partial score of 19-0.
Tennessee responded and broke the shutout with an 18-yard pass from Ryan Tannehill to Dez Fitzpatrick, again with the extra point missed to bring the score to 19-6.
In the final quarter, the Titans got a touchdown with a chance play, Tannehill connected with Dontrell Hilliard, who dropped the ball, however, teammate Anthony Firkser recovered the ball and ran into the end zone.
However, the score was capped when Fairibairn scored his third basket of the match, this one from 37 meters.
The Texans (2-8) will host the New York Jets at their next game on Sunday, November 28.
