Week 17: Tennessee Titans 16, Houston Texans 10- Post Game Thoughts

The Houston Texans drop their fourteenth straight game as they lose in Tennessee by the final count of 16-10.  For me, I’ve just gotta say it: it is about time Chris Johnson had another big game.  Johnson ran for 127 yards on 27 carries with a touchdown to boot.  He topped 100 yards rushing for the first time since he played the Rams all the way back on the third of November.  This was also his first touchdown run in three games.  Needless to say, this was a guy who was in desperate need of a good finish to his disappointing 2013 season.  Speaking of guys desperate to finish strongly, Matt Schaub was unable to do so.  Although it is nearly a certainty that the Texans will be drafting a QB with their (now solidified) first overall pick, Schaub had a chance to impress the team with a solid outing on Sunday and he failed to deliver the goods.  Now he will be lucky if he is even designated to a backup role in the Houston offense.  Jonathan Grimes got some work in for the Texans as he carried the ball 16 times for 50 yards.  He added a rushing touchdown as well as six catches for 76 yards in the passing game.  The more you can do, I guess.  We shall see if he is the guy who will be playing behind Arian Foster next year as all signs point towards Ben Tate leaving the team this off-season.  Anyways, the win for the Titans doesn’t mean a whole lot more than an extra tally in the “W” column.  The focus for this game was to get the ball to the key players and see if they can finish their year in the right way.  As it turns out, they were able to do this so the win on top of it has to feel that much better.  I think they should think about drafting a quarterback in next year’s draft and hold an open competition this summer for the starting job next year between said drafted quarterback, Jake Locker, and Ryan Fitzpatrick.  It would be cool to see how that situation shakes out.
